Chief, Medical Genetics & Dysmorphology
Dr. Emily Doherty grew up in Northern Virginia and graduated from medical school at the University of Virginia. She completed a categorical pediatrics residency at Children's National Medical Center in Washington, DC and passed the Board certification exam in Pediatrics. Next, she completed a medical genetics fellowship at the National Human Genome Research Institute at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, MD and passed the Board certification exam in Clinical Genetics. After graduation, Dr. Doherty relocated to the Roanoke area and started working for Carilion in 2006. She is an associate professor of Pediatrics at the VTC School of Medicine. She describes her current practice as "everything genetic that's not covered by Carilion's Maternal-Fetal Medicine or Cancer Genetics programs". <br/><br/>

Outside the office, she enjoys hiking and attending Roanoke Symphony Orchestra concerts with her family.
Our goal is to help those with a genetic disorder live as normal a life as possible.
