About John Doughton, MD

I chose to be a doctor because I saw that it allows you to meet people at important, vulnerable times in their lives and offer care and guidance in those moments. Specifically I chose Family Medicine because of the breadth of care it equips you to provide, and because you are able to establish lasting relationships with patients.

I chose to be a doctor because I saw that it allows you to meet people at important, vulnerable times in their lives and offer care and guidance in those moments. Specifically I chose Family Medicine because of the breadth of care it equips you to provide, and because you are able to establish lasting relationships with patients. My philosophy of care is to listen to patients to best understand their goals and priorities in regards to their care, and to partner with them to develop a treatment or prevention plan. In some cases there are clear cut paths forward, but often there are multiple possible approaches and I enjoy working together with patients to choose the best option for them. Outside of work I enjoy spending time with my wife, exploring the Triangle, outdoor activities like hiking or anything around water, live music, and playing basketball.
