LONGVIEW, Texas — The multitude of East Texas patients in need of difficult, often life-changing foot, ankle and lower-leg care will have improved access closer to home with the addition of Jacob Dougherty, DPM to the CHRISTUS Trinity Clinic Podiatry team in Longview.

“Podiatry is a specialty where I can make a real impact on the daily lives and well-being of my patients,” said Dr. Dougherty. “Regardless of their conditions and whether they are young or just young-at-heart, I enjoy spending time with my patients and helping them get to where they need to be.
