Dr. Doherty earned his undergraduate degree from The College of William and Mary. It was during his time there as a chemistry major, that he learned of his passion for problem solving and experimenting. That passion led to his pursuit of a medical degree, which he earned from Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine.
Dr. Doherty currently serves as the medical director of VIVA Richmond and Fredericksburg and continues to see patients. As an Interventional Radiologist (IR), he performs minimally invasive surgeries and diagnoses conditions through medical imaging. “It keeps us on our toes,” he said about the daily work of IRs. “We can treat varicose veins, uterine fibroids, aid in cancer diagnosis and perform cancer treatments all in the same day.”
In his free time, Dr. Doherty enjoys traveling and perfecting his grilling and smoking techniques on his Big Green Egg. During the pandemic he picked up another hobby, fly fishing. He says he has a new appreciation for the complexities and skill that it requires.
