What People Say About Dr. James Doty, MD
RecentMost Helpful
Dr. Doty helped me with a back surgery that a lot of others did not want to touch. He helped me immensely and I owe him a great deal of gratitude. He did an excellent job and was a pleasure to deal with.

Dr Doty removed my pituitary gland tumor at El Camino Hospital Mt View in late 2015. The procedure went very well, as expected, but what I didn't expect was the excellent pre-and post surgery care that Dr Doty provided. The nurses and hospital based physicians at ECHMV were attentive and open about my care. + a neuro-complication that had me readmitted weeks later was diagnosed and treated with oral medication by one of the ECH neurologists. If you need any type of surgery, look 1st at ECHMV.
