Our Story

A Bit of History…

DOC Auto ® founder and CEO Dave O’Connell began working on cars in 1978. While attending Virginia Tech in 1982 he and his roommates started the auto repair business that would become DOC Auto ®. They worked on fellow students’ cars mostly, usually in the dorm parking lots or apartment complexes’ parking lots.

As recently as 2003 Dave ran the whole show – answering phones, ordering parts, working on clients’ cars. We bought our building in Chatham Heights around Christmas 2006. There have been many changes to the auto repair industry and to my business since then, but one thing has never changed, and never will – that is our commitment to the responsibility we have to you, our client.

With the help and untiring efforts of the whole DOC Auto ® team, the second DOC Auto ® location opened on Spotsy’s Courthouse Road in 2018.
