Carin R. Dougherty is an excellent provider. I think the world of her. She's a lovely caring & awesome PA-C.


I saw Caryn Dougherty, Dr. [...]'s PA. she was excellent and I felt very confident of her abilities. She was thorough and answered my questions in ways I understood.

She is very concerned, caring & thorough at every appointment.

would recommend to all I know

[...] Dr. Dougherty did very well.

Seeing PA Karin Dougherty is always an extreme pleasure. She is very professional but also personable, takes time, goes over medications, lifestyle, makes suggestions regarding my situation and needs but does not impose limitations on me because of my other health issues. It is always very a very satisfying visit.

Very pleasant and capable!

the care provider seemed in a rush and only answered some of our questions. refusing to answer some.

It was a very positive experience
