Kevin McNamara, M.D.
Kevin McNamara, MD was encouraged to become a doctor by his 4th grade teacher, who observed his compassion toward friends and classmates. He was also drawn to math and science in school, so medicine seemed like a good fit. He chose gastroenterology as his subspecialty because the field offers so much diversity. When he looks back at that deciding moment, Dr. McNamara reflects, “Gastroenterology is never mundane. Every day is something different.”
Dr. McNamara graduated from the University of Notre Dame with an undergraduate degree in Anthropology/Pre-Professional studies, and attended medical school at the University of Oklahoma College of Medicine. He completed his internship and residency in Internal Medicine at the University of Texas Health Sciences Center in San Antonio, followed by a fellowship in Gastroenterology at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center in Oklahoma City.
Dr. McNamara has a broad interest in the field of gastroenterology which includes colorectal cancer prevention, liver disease, hepatitis C therapy, inflammatory bowel disease, and reflux disease.
When he’s not working, Dr. McNamara likes to play golf and go running. He has won competitive golf tournaments, and he ran a marathon during his gastroenterology fellowship.
