Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Doty "My goal as a physician and neurosurgeon is to ensure that anyone under my care not only feels that they have been treated with kindness and compassion but that they also have a complete understanding of the condition for which they have been referred and the options for treatment, both surgical and non-surgical, have been explained thoroughly in language that they understand and that appropriate time has been given to ask any necessary questions."
