With proper education, commitment & balance, a person can often ride on their own.
Vincent N. McColm, M.D. is Board Certified by the American Board of Internal Medicine. Dr. McColm is also Board Certified by the American Board of Pediatrics.
The majority of medications I prescribe are intended to be training wheels. With proper education, commitment & balance, a person can often ride on their own. Not everyone gets there, but nothing makes me happier in my practice than being able to stop a medication that was once essential and is now unnecessary.
I chose primary care because of the personal connections that develop over time with my patients, and the challenge of oftentimes being the first to address a medical concern. It gives me a tremendously wide and challenging range of experiences, and keeps me constantly learning. My youngest patients are only a few hours old, and my oldest patient is 101 years old, which provides me with quite a unique perspective on life & medicine.
I was raised in the Bay Area of California and transplanted to Texas in High School. My father is Vietnamese, and my mother is Caucasian. I attended Baylor University with a dual major in Biology & Philosophy, and attended UT Southwestern Medical School in Dallas. I am the Chief of Pediatrics Division at Las Colinas Medical Center.
I have an interest in philosophy and sit on the Ethics committee of Las Colinas Medical Center. I strongly believe in preventive care.
I enjoy spending time with my wife and children - it seems that we are constantly at one zoo, museum, festival, or another. When I have the time, I enjoy mountain biking on the many trails around North Texas and enjoy traveling to new places.
I live in North Arlington with my wife, daughter and son, as well as our golden retriever & our cat.
