Ratings for Dr. James W. Dougher
I just have to say how much I love Dr. Dougher . He was my doctor as well as my husbands. When he was sent home from Torrance Memorial sicker than when he was admitted, so ill he actually fell out of our car when I got him home! Dr, Dougher heard about this and actually CAME TO OUR HOUSE to treat my husband. Brought his own supplies treated him and got him admitted to a care facility that actually got him helped up. I have since lost my dear husband and left California..but I continue my search for a Dr. Dougher ...he's one in a million...and if I had a million I would love to hire him as our family's private physician! GOD BLESS YOU. DR. DOUGHER!
I saw Dr. Dougher when my regular doctor, who I don't care for very much, was out on maternity leave. Meeting Dr. Dougher was like a breathe of fresh air. He was extremely immediate, warm, caring, attentive, and knowledgeable. He spent time trying to diagnose my condition, unlike my regular doctor who just asked a couple of questions, prescribed medication that I DID NOT need, and sent me on my way with an inaccurate diagnosis. Dr. Dougher ordered bloodwork to be drawn and did not hesitate to refer me to neurology. When I told Dr. Dougher that my own research helped me diagnose myself, he listened and was supportive of my theory. Every time I schedule an appointment with Healthcare Partners, I ask if Dr. Dougher is covering for anyone, in hopes that he might be there. Perhaps one day he will be. Until then, I am settling for a doctor I don't care too much for. I have visited some of the other doctors there as well and feel that they are not any better. Dr. Dougher is Great!
The BEST DOCTOR I HAVE EVER BEEN TO!!! He is a home-town doctor, which will sit and talk to you, he is caring and will go beyond the stars for each patient. He even ran down stairs to get my x-rays and out-of-breath when he came back - he still sat and talked to me. He is also amazing at diagnosing your problem. He knew right away what was wrong with me, when other doctors had no idea. I am so upset with the healthcare group for making him a floater doctor & making him completely unaccessable to patients because he doesn't handle the volume other drs do - I would pay money for him if he ever opened a private practice also.
He is the best doctor I have ever had. I believe he saved my life. He is very conciencious, and he really cars about you and your recovery. He spends the time with you to listen to what you have to say so that he has a complete history of your health. He was working or an HMO Health Care Partners but put him as a floater because he is not fast enough to herd people like cows as HMO's expect. He is a Hometown doctor who cares about your best interest.
The best doctor I have ever had as far as thoroughness, helpfulness, consideration and compassion. Dr Dougher was my doctor for 15 years. He would still be my doctor if we had not moved. Haven't found a replacement nearly as good yet. We miss him.
Dr. Dougher became my doctor because my PCP left and his patients were turfed among to docs. I must say I am VERY, VERY PLEASED with him! Not only is he very personable, he is compassionate, considerate, and very thorough! Dr. Dougher is a very well educated man, as it comes accross! He follows through and gives you his time!! He is someone I would highly reccommend to my family and friends!!
Excellent Doctor. He could open a private practice and I'd pay him for consulting. An amazing clinician. He works in an HMO but that will not hold him back from conducting tests that are necessary. He runs far behind but it's because he spends quality time when he's with you, even if he's already an hour behind.
