William Cornish, MD, has joined Samaritan Coastal Clinic in Lincoln City. He provides primary care to patients of all ages.
Cornish earned a bachelor’s degree at the University of California and a medical degree from Juarez Autonomous University. He completed residency training in family medicine at Marshall University School of Medicine in Huntington, W.Va., where he served as chief resident, and an internship at R.E. Thomason General Hospital at Texas Tech University.
He comes to Lincoln City after seeing patients in private practices in Durango, Colo., Beaufort, S.C., and, most recently, Tucson, Ariz. Over the years, he has served in many roles as physician to corrections facilities, emergency departments, safe houses and developmentally disabled programs. He was also the medical director for the drug and alcohol unit for several years.
Cornish is fluent in Spanish and French, and welcomes patients who speak these languages also.
Away from the office, Cornish enjoys hiking, biking and reading historical biographies. He has traveled extensively, living in Mexico, France and Belgium. He said the Oregon coast is one of the best places he’s been.
“I look forward to working in a small-town atmosphere,” Cornish said.
