Bringing diversity to the staff, Dr. McCain embraces small town healthcare

Goodall-Witcher Healthcare wants to introduce and welcome our newest physician, Dr. Taylor McCain, who began accepting family medicine and obstetric appointments Aug. 23.

“The draw to family medicine for me was the breadth of scope and continuity with patients and families, "Dr. McCain said. “Rural medicine is the absolute best fit for everything that I want as a physician. I am excited to be joining a team of health care professionals focused on the health and success of their community. I am looking forward to expanding OB services and hopefully introducing some of the surrounding communities to the benefits of continuity family medicine including obstetrics.”

Graduating Cum Laude from the University of North Texas in Denton with a bachelor degree in Biology and minors in Chemistry, English and Spanish in 2010, Taylor went on to earn a degree as a Doctor Osteopathic Medicine at the University of North Texas Health Science Center - Texas College of Osteopathic Medicine in Fort Worth. Dr. McCain completed her Family Medicine Residency at the McLennan County Medical Education and Research Foundation in Waco.

Through taking a health science technology education course in high school, Dr. McCain was exposed to the variety of medicine. And after becoming certified as an EMT-Basic during her senior year, Taylor volunteered in the surgical and emergency departments of the local hospital.

“It was there that I decided medical school was in my future,” Dr. McCain said. “Because of these experiences and my mother's long teaching career, I am passionate about mentoring and teaching at various stages of education from high school to residency. I look forward to continue to teach at Goodall-Witcher.”

Excited about joining the team of physicians at Goodall-Witcher Healthcare, Dr. McCain likes the way she fits in and hopes to uniquely contribute to the staff.

“I think I bring some diversity to the team being female, a DO who practices OMT, and speaking some Spanish from having grown up and practiced in heavily Hispanic border communities,” said Dr. McCain, who grew up in Eagle Pass and practiced in Presidio for the last three years. “I think Goodall-Witcher will be an excellent fit as it seems they are future oriented and interested in expanding while retaining the charm and benefits of small town personable healthcare.”

Dr. McCain comes to Clifton with her husband Bryan, and their two children, seven-year-old Charlie and three-year-old Jayden. As parents, the McCains enjoy doing activities and outdoor pursuits with their kids. Entering the second grade at Clifton Elementary, Charlie loves reading, cars and dinosaurs, while Jayden follows his big brother's lead.

“My husband and I loved the community feel when we visited," Dr. McCain said. "We are excited for all the opportunities that the area offers for children, as we have two boys, while still being close knit enough to afford them the benefits of small town raising that both my husband and I enjoyed.”

To make an appointment to see Dr. McCain, please call the Clifton Cinic at 254-675-8621, or email us at: cliftonclinic@gwhf.org and a healthcare professional will get back to you as soon as possible.
