A distinguished physician, Dr. Coohill is a three-time recipient of the MDx Medical, Inc. Patient’s Choice Award and MDx Medical, Inc. Patient’s Choice Compassionate Doctor Award.

I find it very satisfying when I can help people get better,” says Dr. Coohill.

She is a third-generation descendent of a large Irish family with roots in the Connemara region of County Galway, Ireland. She is one of 33 first cousins on her father’s side alone. She and her husband, an Irishman who is retired from the police force, have two daughters. They love sharing Irish traditions, including baking Irish soda bread. They are planning their inaugural family trip to Ireland in the upcoming months. ♦
