Eva McCarthy, DO, has joined Samaritan Family Medicine Residency Clinic. Dr. McCarthy provides primary care for people of all ages including general pediatrics and prenatal care. She performs minor office procedures, as well as osteopathic manipulation for managing chronic pain.
Dr. McCarthy grew up in Corvallis and attended Oregon State University, where she had the opportunity to shadow physicians.
“I saw how interesting and fulfilling the field of medicine is,” she said.
After completing Samaritan’s residency program, she practiced frontier medicine in Eastern Oregon before returning to the Willamette Valley.
“Those experiences gave me a unique perspective on the importance of continuity of care and how physicians play an integral part in taking care of the needs of communities and families,” Dr. McCarthy said. “I have always wanted to return not only to my hometown, but also to the organization that supported me and helped me to grow professionally.”
In her free time, she enjoys gravel bicycle riding, rafting, canoe camping, cross-country skiing and spending time in the wilderness with her family and two dogs.
