"Outstanding, Dr. D is the best!"

"Excellent! "

"My surgeon called Dr. Dougherty as soon as he knew I had an infection. Dr. Dougherty saw me the same day the surgeon called him

   and he took an aggressive path to treat my infection. He continued to see me at least once a week, if not more, until my infection was

   gone. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Dougherty. "

"Dr. Dougherty provided superb care. He fit me into his busy schedule, and took the time to explain things. He knows what he is doing,

   and seems to truly care about his patients! "

"It was more than refreshing to actually have a physician like Dr. Dougherty who attacked the potentially dangerous threat to

   my well being in an aggressive and professional manner
