Patient Reviews
Jun 02, 2023
Dr Dougherty is kind, patient and thorough. He is very empathetic and explains things so very well,And takes time to answer the smallest questions. He puts in great efforts to solve the problem I was referred to Dr Dougherty for my take down surgery (reversing a colostomy).i had too many adhesions from the prior surgery that created the colostomy surgery for the attachment to be possible The good doctor spent 9 hours trying to fix me.(clean up someone else's mess) He was not one to give up, and he kept me safe. I have healed beautifully and my follow up appointments are almost like a happy reunion. I simply could not be more satisfied!
