12/03/13 5 5 5 5 This Dr is Amazing. His assistant is a class act ! I fought with my primary care doc to get evaluated. For a bad shoulder and forced me to try only physical therapy to heal. Dr Dougherty listened to me and was thorough with his test , scheduled me for an MRI based on his findings and confirmed I was in dire need of surgery . My labrum and rotator were an absolute mess , I had no mobility and was in pain prior to surgery. After ward I was vastly improved. I was able to get back to work in about 6 weeks and today I am at 100% I recently rode my motorcycle 1000 miles in one day without a single. Issue with my shoulder( anyone who rides would understand the gravity of this statement.) I am extremely thankful to this Doctor and would readily reccomend him to anyone who is considering surgical correction particularly if your employment or livelihood require expertise to retain.

01/03/10 4 4 5 5 My daughter apparently tore the meniscus in her left knee when she fell playing 'Dance Dance Revolution'. He asked a lot of questions, verbally interacted, and listened. He provided useful information for self care and monitoring. He was able to relate since he said he had once suffered the same injury. He made us feel comfortable and that we could trust him. Condition is still pending, so we'll post update.  Respond

19/01/10 3 5 5 5 I had rotator cuff surgery in December 2009- Dr Daugherty has been so great. He very patiently answers all of my questions with his calm southern accent, and cheers me on in my progress. He always seems genuinely happy to see me. The office staff sometimes confuses which office I need to be scheduled in (he is in the Encinitas and the Oceanside office) but Dr Daugherty is a really nice man and I always feel confident that he knows what he is doing and is taking the best care of me. I have never had to wait more than 5 minutes after my appointment time. He lets me know if I need to work on more exercises to get my mobility back and has set up my PT to begin now that I have shown good progress. I am happy to recommend him to ANYONE and if I should ever need ortho surgery again I will not hesitate to go to him again.
