Patient Comments (2)
in Norwich, CT |
Dr. Dougherty is an outstanding physician/cardiologist. I have seen many physicians/surgeons in my lifetime. I had many issues with DVTs (blood clots two near fatal) and it was Dr. Dougherty who believed I had a mutated Gene and sent me to a hemotologist. Dr. Dougherty was correct and probably saved my life! I am so sad he is retiring; however, I wish him well...??Pat Gagliardo
Dr. James Dougherty was experienced, confident and had an excellent bedside manner. He seemed sincere in his desire to help and follow-up. He allots plenty of time and listens. I wish more doctors were like him. However, the young lady who answers the phone and redirects the calls is a consistent rude, unprofessional person.
