Dr. Doherty was insulting when he first saw me in the exam room. He made a disgusting sound because I was a large woman, I lost confidence in him at that moment. Doctors need to see a patient for their needs, not to be judgmental. I left and realized if he is going to see me and judge me then he does not have my best interest at heart and I found a better doctor that was compassionate and kinder. He should be ready to serve the needs of a patient and not judge. I went on to lose weight and joined in the medical profession and I had a lot of larger patients and never once did I ever see them any differently then a patient that was to thin or what people would judge as NORMAL weight whatever that is. The world is made up of all kinds of shapes and colors, Dr. Doherty needs to remember his oath as a physician and get his ego out of the way.

I had surgery for skin cancer. I have to say that the entire encounter with Dr. Doherty and his staff was helariously entertaining. It was so enjoyable that I am looking for more reasons to go there again. Well, I have these spots on my back....... I will make an appointment. Need a good laugh. Besides that - his surgery skills could win any price at the county fair in the department for fine needle work. You get much more than just superb medical expertise. I highly reccomand him.

Best dermatologist in Whatcom County, hands down. I have had 2 melanomas and have been seen every year for the last 10+ years for checkups. I've seen every other dermatologist in Bellingham, trying to find one that I feel cares, is cautious, listens to my concerns, and takes time in the appointment to do the job well. Dr. Doherty is very very nice and his nurse and staff are awesome too. So sweet. I finally feel like I can rest at ease. Don't waste your time with any other dermatologist.

I saw Dr. Doherty for the first time today, and I cannot speak more highly of him. What a great bedside manner! Professional, respectful, and with a great sense of humor, he and his nurse, Sue, totally put me at my ease. He listens, and his attitude is one of putting the patient's needs first. His receptionist was also friendly and kind. I will definitely be going back to Dr. Doherty should the need arise.

Dr. Doherty performed Mohs surgery on my left temple approximately 6 months ago. It turned out excellent and you can't even see a scar. Thank Dr. Doherty!
