Referred to Dr. Dougherty post-surgery on a shattered kneecap, as my original surgeon went on leave. He was friendly and clear on the condition and treatment. Successful outcome!

Amazing Dr! I shattered my hip and pelvis and broke my leg in a car accident. Dr Dougherty was working the ER and performed 3 operations putting me back together and 4 months later I am able to walk without a limp and in no pain! I am forever grateful! Thank you Dr Dougherty!!!

I met Dr. Dougherty in the ER. I had a very traumatic injury to my pelvis and he was the trauma surgeon on call. He and his staff provided the highest level of professional care for me through my surgery, hospital stay, and after care. I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Dougherty and his team. He is a highly skilled surgeon who truly cares about his patients, which is manifested in his bedside manner. In a world of red tape, Dr. Dougherty and his team make themselves accessible to their patients. My phone calls were returned and questions answered promptly. I did not have to wait weeks to get follow up appointments. Today, I am fully recovered and living a healthy and active life thanks to the skill and care of Dr Dougherty. I am so grateful! I recommend him highly.

Dr. Dougherty is one of the best doctors you could ever have. He is so compassionate. He truly cares about what’s best for his patient and he takes as much time as is needed, to explain everything. It’s comforting to know that when you have an orthopedic issue and you’re unsure of what’s next, that Dr. Dougherty is there is guide you every step of the way, with his excellent care. He also has a wonderful and very friendly team who make each visit run smoothly.

I had an unfortunate accident with a tree and ended up with a tibial plateau fracture. Two other "knee" doctors were unable to deal with my injury. I was referred to Dr. Dougherty due to the trauma of my case. I saw him one day and had surgery the very next day. He was on the ball and did a great job! At every follow up appointment he and his staff answered all of my questions and concerns.

I'm a paraplegic who fell while transferring from one chair to another and broke my femur...my Dr. highly recommended Dr. Dougherty at Good Sam in Hinsdale...and, now, I highly recommend Dr. Dougherty, also. He patiently answered all my questions and let me know what to expect. He's very personable and his team is just as awesome...I'm very impressed by Dr. Dougherty and also very thankful he was recommended.

We feel so fortunate that Dr Dougherty was on call the night my husband needed surgery to repair a broken femur following a fall at home. He took the time to make sure we understood what was going to happen in surgery and after discharge. Office visits were easy to schedule, office staff was wonderful as was the radiology staff. We highly recommend Dr Dougherty.

Dr. Evan Dougherty did an exceptional job on my complex traumatic ankle injuries in 2019 and recent hardware removal in 2021. I have never written a review online before I shattered my ankle in 3 different places, but I felt compelled to share my positive outcomes under Dr. Dougherty’s attentive care. He did not waste any time to explain my conditions with me as well as my treatment options. He is knowledgeable, informative, caring and friendly . I immediately felt confident in receiving expert medical care. I highly recommend him to anyone in search for a trauma orthopedic surgeon. In my experience and opinion Dr. Evan Dougherty is the expert and the best orthopedic surgeon!

Dr Dougherty has given me my life back. I had a very complicated injury and I was told that there were only three doctors available to do this type of surgery in the whole state. I appreciate this doctor for going above what he has been taught and using ingenuity to patch me back together.

I have never wrote a review online before but Dr. Dougherty changed my wife’s life after a horrific bicycle accident, it’s the least I can do. My wife shattered her leg in three different places and Dr. Dougherty was the only trauma surgeon in DuPage County that could perform a technical surgery as this one. He is incredibly smart, talented and thoughtful but most of all his bedside manner is the best I have ever seen. He really cares about his patients. The nurses rave about him and now I know why. He is extremely honest about the risks and very clear on the effects of the surgery. In my wife’s case it was so extreme to learn to walk again we ran out of our insurance rehab visits. He went out of his way to vouch for her that she needs more assistance. His office was as responsive to get back to us as he is. He creates a quality medical culture that puts you at ease. He is remarkable, makes you smile and we are EXTREMELY grateful we met him. Thank you Dr. Dougherty!

When I shattered my hip in Australia, our primary care doctor referred me to Dr. Dougherty. He always took his time to explain his decisions. He has wonderful "bedside" manner. I never felt rushed. His PA is also wonderful. His office runs smoothly. Everyone remembers my name and remembers details from the last appointments. I trust him and his office workers. His office, also, returns my phone calls quickly.
