"I can't remember a time when I didn't want to be a doctor," says Dr. McCoach. "In addition to helping my patients improve and maintain their cardiovascular and overall health, I find it rewarding to develop long-lasting personal relationships with them. I treat each of my patients as an equal, and I enjoy partnering with them in decisions about their health and well-being."
When he is not working with his patients, Dr. McCoach enjoys reading fiction, history, and science fiction. He especially enjoys spending time with his dog, LiLu (or WeeWoo). "LiLu has a busier social life than most people," says Dr. McCoach. "When I'm with my patients, I share LiLu with my mom and a good friend. LiLu spends her busy days running errands, visiting people in the nursing home, and taking happy walks. Sometimes when I'm lucky enough to walk her, people I don't even know call out to LiLu, ask who I am, and ask how I got lucky enough to walk her that day!"
