Everson, WA |
Very professional and such a sense of humor! Did an excellent job,very well pleased!
Everson, WA |
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!
