About Me

I practice the full spectrum of family medicine including the treatment of children and elderly patients. I place an emphasis on preventative healthcare and chronic disease management. Some of these chronic diseases include conditions such as diabetes, hypertension, asthma and heart failure. I also work as an educator for medical students and family medicine residents.

I strive to provide patient-centered and cost-effective care that is based on the best research evidence available. I believe in individualized healthcare and that a patient’s health can be improved through patient education, partnership and shared decision-making.

I love working at The Ohio State University because we are continually expanding our patient-centered care. The knowledge base and resources here at Ohio State are unmatched by any other institution. In addition, I find it stimulating to have the opportunity to teach students and residents.

In my free time I enjoy relaxing with my family, traveling and enjoying the outdoors.

    I continue to be very satisfied with my doctor. I am encouraged to ask questions, and am confident in his answers. I know that my concerns are considered and it seems like a health care partnership. I also like it that he is on staff with the medical school and had med students with him.

    I really appreciate that Dr. McConaghy takes the time to sit in a chair, away from the computer, and talks with me about my health. He is not rushed, he listens and is very practical in his diagnosis and treatments.
