I’m Pat Dougherty
My Office is Open for Limited Hours
It is the last day of March and still no exponential growth of the Covid-19 virus in Spokane. My office was open last week as a one man operation (two 5 hour days, Wednesday and Saturday). Myself and one other person (the patient)will be in the office at a time (a few brief overlaps). It is expected that anyone with even a hint of illness will not schedule an appointment. It is requested that you do not bring anyone into the office with you and do not come to your appointment early. Appointments are longer to allow required patient handwashing, taking temperatures, sterilization of everything that was touched after one person left before the next comes in the treatment room. I know that nothing is guaranteed no matter how careful I am. Still, I felt it is the right thing to see the more critical patients. Part of my decision is that Spokane has been quite slow to really embrace mitigation. Last week we turned an important corner. But, until we can test everyone, we know next to nothing. That means we will be in the dark and at risk for the foreseeable future. Two weeks was a joke. If we are truly serious, then we will prepare ourselves for the long haul, think 6 months or more of self quarantine, and then we would still be vulnerable. This virus is something all of us will have to deal with in the next year and more.
A reasonable question to ask is, "what risks will I accept and when will that change?" Any time we leave the house and go to a store, or any other place with people, there will be a chance of coming into contact with the virus and spreading it; FOR THE FORESEEABLE FUTURE. Most of you wil be going out at times. I believe my office is one of the safest places you can go.
If you are comfortable seeing me, then I am comfortable seeing you. In the meantime, I will still be available by email or phone to answer any questions and concerns. Supplements can help protect you. The best defense is a great offense and that offense is your lifestyle, including supplements. I am available to consult with you at no charge by phone. Call 327-4373, or email to set a phone consult time. Remember, no staff. That means those of you who hate to leave phone messages may have to change your habits in order to get an appointment. I look forward to seeing you soon.
Yours in Health,

Corona virus updates
Supplements can help you prepare your immune system. See the new post (on this website) that was written on March 3, 2020 to see how I prepared for this with supplements.
Homeopaths believe they are able to produce antidotes for a virus much quicker than the Big Pharma industry. Below is a web address where you can check out what one such company is offering. It is not an actual link but if you copy the link inside the quotes and paste into your browser it will give you the option to go to Lotus Homeopathy
I have nothing but words of praise for Dr. Pat’s work as a holistic practitioner…
I have been going to Dr. Pat since 2005. I am diagnosed with stenosis of the spine, partial scoliosis,
He is an amazing chiropractor who takes his time to help you get back in alignment. He is great with me and my kiddos!
I first came to Dr. Dougherty a little over 2 yrs. ago., 6 yrs. prior I received a diagnosis of Bi-lateral carpal tunnel syndrome, with severe hand and wrist pain, all my digital dexterity was compromised with little to no feeling left in my fingers. Sleep was severely compromised with many days of no sleep at all!
Not wanting the “only” option of surgery, I began a course of treatment w/Dr. Dougherty. After 2 yrs. of semi-regular treatment, I now have 90% feeling returned, the pain has decreased significantly, and sleep has returned. I continue to work as a maintenance /grounds keeper.This is a big deal, since at one point I had to step away from the job and many of my responsibilities!
At 70 yrs. old, I am very grateful for the persistence of Dr. Dougherty in continually employing new, and different methods of treatment to get me to the place I now enjoy! Regular maintenance with Dr. Dougherty has definitely paid off with high returns!!
Amazing bedside manner!
Dr. Pat is so calm and centered, one can’t help but feel better whenever you’re in his presence. I highly recommend him.
I have been seeing Dr. Pat for about 15 years. Before that I’ve gone to others chiropractors and all have helped in one way or another. But Dr. Pat’s holistic and individualized approach has worked the best. That’s why I stay. I no longer have the low back pain I once did. Neck pain is mostly gone and well controlled with a visit every 2 weeks. And something amazing happened! I suffered with chronic depression since age 11, and with Dr. Pat’s help, found out it was food related depression. I haven’t been depressed now for 2 or 3 years, no more antidepressants needed. It’s really wonderful to be rid of it.
Dr. Dougherty treatments
Over the years I have went to many different chiropractors each having their own philosophy and treatment approach. The last few years I have found that Dr. Dougherty’s approach is the most specialized in that he uses your body to get answers as to how and what your body wants to be adjusted, not just a basic adjustment so many do. As a healthcare provider since 2002 I appreciate the care and intelligence that goes into a session with Pat and I always get better results because of it.
