Dr. Dougherty's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Dougherty "I spent the majority of my childhood growing up in New England. My father served 20 years in the Navy and when he retired we moved to his home state of West Virginia. I studied biology at Fairmont State College in Fairmont, WV and then received my medical degree at Marshall University in Huntington, WV. I moved to Pittsburgh for my training in family medicine and completed my residency at St. Margaret Hospital in 2007. I recently left one of the large healthcare corporations in the city after almost 8 years in practice. I live north of Pittsburgh with my husband and two sons."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Dougherty "I decided to start a direct primary care practice because I want to return to the essence of medicine and the reason why I became a primary care physician: the doctor-patient relationship. The rush of mainstream healthcare, the burden of administration and the red tape of the insurance industry and "big box" medicine has made this more and more difficult.  I want to practice "slow medicine": taking time and getting to know my patients so we can work together as a team. My vision is to have a small panel of patients who I can work closely with and provide great primary care to in a simple and sincere fashion.  Like the small-town docs of days gone by, my goal is to provide accessibility, affordability and personalized care in a friendly and intimate setting through direct primary care."
