Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I have been addressing my mental health by going to numerous providers over the years and have struggled to find a provider such as Dr. Dougherty. The only problem is I wish I had found him sooner.

So glad I found Dr. Dougherty! Out of 5 counselors I've seen at various times over 30 years, he is absolutely the best! He is insightful, objective, caring, kind, and extremely knowledgeable --- even in understanding the physical aspects of how the brain works for highly sensitive persons. A true reflection of his expertise, Dr. Dougherty successfully treats patients without drugs. It's easy to prescribe a pill but Dr. Dougherty focuses instead on real solutions and real options without putting his patients at risk. I am convinced that if more practitioners treated patients as Dr. Dougherty does, then the overuse of anti-depressants and anti-anxiety drugs would be greatly reduced and we'd be a healthier (and happier) community. He is a gem!
