I would definitely recommend Dr. James Doty to my friends and relatives.. He is is an excellent Colorectal Surgeon. He takes the time to explain the process before the surgery and gave me a chance to think about it. He is very attentive and reassuring and a true vessel used by God. Thank you Dr. Doty.

I had Dr Doty as my surgeon almost 3 1/2 years ago. What exceptional hernia surgery he performed on me. A very professional doctor who explains your situation very clear and throughly and leaves nothing out. He is very caring, friendly and listens to you & answers all your questions throughly. I highly recommend him. I just saw him again and may need more surgery.

I was admitted into Westside Regional Hospital for emergency gall bladder surgery. I had complications prior and during my surgery. Dr. Doty and his partner Dr. Weinstein, were hands-on every step of the way, they were available, concerned and informative. My surgery ended up being complicated due to my infection. Dr. Doty did an excellent job. Post surgery he made sure I was comfortable, and healing properly. I had a follow up office visit 10 days later. His office and staff was professional. My stitches, staples and tube were all removed. I am fortunate that he was my surgeon, and if I ever needed surgery again or anyone in my family, he is who we would use.

Decatur, GA – Apr 24, 2017
This review has no reflection on Dr. Doty's skills as a surgeon. This is strictly a management rating. I was scheduled for appointment on a Friday and contacted less than 24 hours prior to reschedule as Dr Doty was going into OR. I called requesting other day as it was not a priority situation. I arrived timely following following Tues at 2p , was held over 1/12 hours, observed patients not being called for 2 hours and walked. No office management advised patients of good cause for delay.
