Care Philosophy

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.Read more

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.
