About Us

At Crossroads, our desire is not to simply manage chronic disease,

but to truly promote your individual health and wellness.

We will give you the tools you need to make the best choices for your health and wellness.  “A pill for every ill” is not our primary means of medical treatment, though medication may be necessary to manage some acute and chronic illnesses. 

About Dr. Doty

Hello!  I have been a family medicine physician for 20 years, primarily in Charlotte, NC until our family recently relocated to Southwest Florida.  I graduated from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2002 and completed family medicine residency training at Memorial Hospital in York, Pennsylvania in 2005.  I am board certified by the American Osteopathic Board of Family Physicians. Throughout my career,  I have used my medical degree in many unique and fulfilling ways!   My areas of expertise include general family medicine, urgent care, medical practice management, and academic medicine.  Lately, I have a growing interest in lifestyle medicine - equipping the body to do what it was designed to do by focusing on nutrition, exercise, spiritual health and mindset.  

Faith in Christ and the principles of Osteopathic Medicine are foundational to my approach to patient care.  Not sure what Osteopathic Medicine is?  Click here to learn more.  I absolutely love the principles of osteopathic medicine and look forward to sharing more with each of my patients.  

My husband, David, and I live in Estero, Florida and have six children, including two adopted children from Ukraine, and a playful labradoodle named Ralphie.  We enjoy traveling, spending time with family, and investing time in our home church.  “With God, life is an adventure!” is our motto.
