Dr. Heather N. Doherty's Ratings
She is incredible!! Takes time to listen and go through options. Goes over notes before she comes into room to help remember you as a person and whats going on in your life. Never felt rushed, very empathetic and genuinely concerned. Very thorough yet wont do things if she doesn't feel needed. Great great great dr!!!
She listens to what we as patients have to say. She is knowledgeable, professional, focuses on quality evidence based cost effective medical care. She is compassionate and genuine and it comes across in the way she communicates and interacts with her patients. Best doctor my husband and I ever had. Highly recommend.
Dr Doherty is one of the nicest doctors I have ever had. She is the type of doctor you're lucky to have on your side when you're in need of an empathetic, knowledgable, and sincere doctor. She takes her time diagnosing and talking to you to make sure you understand your options and the steps that need to be taken to help you get better. No matter how far I live in San Diego, I will continue going to her!
(HealthNet Insurance) Very nice, takes great notes not only on health but also on discussions, so is able to make you feel at ease by asking you about work, where you grew up, whatever came up the last time. She takes the time to get to know YOU, even if for that brief moment. I also have some anxiety issues and she was very understanding and patient - and even had some great tips for getting through an uncomfortable exam. Had a little trouble with scheduling and messages with her staff, but nothing that ruined my life - only made me miss a 1/2 day of work for no reason, but she offered to refund copay and apologized profusely for the mistake.
Heather Doherty MD is the bomb. She's young, but smart, sharp, sensitive and sincere. Best of all, she treats me like a person - not just a patient. Being seriously sick sucks. But seeing a physician like her really does make the most jagged pill easier to swallow. Her ego isn't in the game. Her heart certainly is. When most MDs won't even look you in the eye or acknowledge anything about you except the disease you have - that is refreshing. My only complaint? She works part-time. I'll take it.
