Despite growing up in a medical family, McKay Crowley, MD had a 15 year career in healthcare administration before entering medical school at age 35. Frustrations with business side of medicine, coupled with her daughter’s serious health condition, laid the groundwork for her moving to patient care as a second career. Taking care of patients during illness and helping them protect and preserve their wellness is Dr. Crowley’s passion.
A questioning mind, medical school at Medical University of South Carolina and Internal Medicine Residency at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center prepared her for Board Certification in Internal Medicine, Integrative and Holistic Medicine as well as Hospice and Palliative Medicine. She has completed advanced training in Neurofunctional Acupuncture at McMasters University in Hamilton, ON and uses a multimodality approach to better support her patients and their quest for better health.
She loves sharing her knowledge with patients to help them achieve and maintain optimal health. The more Dr. Crowley studied non-traditional ways of delivering care, intrigued she became with the possibility of using more than just medications to keep motivated individuals healthy rather than waiting to care for them once they became sick. Patients started asking for assistance helping them stay well. Her current practice uses integrative treatments including acupuncture, nutritional and probiotic care, and other modalities to supplement conventional medical interventions to maximize health.
She has witnessed first hand the difference a health-oriented relationship between doctor and patients, improves their quality of life. TIME is also a key component of Dr. Crowley’s practice style. Time spent with the patient is the most important part of caring for someone.
Dr. Crowley is committed to lifelong learning and devotes several hundred hours a year to continuing education.
She fills her non-clinical time with her husband, two daughters, an active (and addictive) passion for horses and competes in the discipline of Dressage regularly.
