    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

She's a Good doctor

I have been seeing Dr. Dougherty for about 10 years. She is excellent and always very caring -- even following up on her day off during a particularly stressful time. I highly recommend her.

Complacent doctor...

I seen Dr. Dougherty a few times. The first few visits were general examines that went "ok". She was not very informative and wasn't very responsive to my questions or concerns. At that time I thought that I was just being overly concerned. In any case I went to see Dr. Dougherty a few ago for what felt like an ear infection and sinus issues. She said that I had allergies and prescribe Zyrtec. I though this was odd since I've never had any allergies and this was a very sudden onset. She brushed my concerns aside and when I asked her if there were anything I can do help with the allergies she did not provide any information asides from taking the pills. Which is ridiculous, if you google it, there are a number of things that you can do to help minimize your exposure to the allergen. Well, I tried taking Zyrtec and it didn't do a thing. I ended up going to a a clinic for a second opinion and it was not allergies but my sinuses. I was able to clear up my symptoms in a few days and the person from the clinic even called me up for a follow up to make sure that my condition was improving. I will never go back to Dr. Dougherty.

Fantastic Family Doctor

I would highly recommend Dr. Dougherty to anyone who is looking for a great Family Practice doctor. She was recommended to me by another doctor when I had to switch my medical group (I previously had UCD). I love Dr. Dougherty's attitude and professionalism. She's great with my twins as well as my baby (11 months old). I also put her down as my own doctor and have found her to be quick yet thorough in evaluations of all of us. She was able to answer all of my questions about my children's health as well as my own. I also appreciate how easy it is to get in to get an appointment and how nice her nurse is to my kiddos (especially when they can be a handful).

Find a another doctor - misdiagnosed twice

Dr. Dougherty is a horrible diagnostician and did not even go over or review my test results. My tests showed high cholesterol and possibility of malfunctioning kidneys with being on high blood pressure meds can be life threatening. Run not walk to another doctor.
