Ian McCoy


Kidney doctor and patient-oriented researcher

Dr. Ian McCoy is a nephrologist who treats all kidney disorders, including acute kidney injury (kidney damage or failure that occurs suddenly), chronic kidney disease, electrolyte abnormalities and glomerular diseases (conditions that damage glomeruli, the blood vessels in the kidneys that filter waste).

McCoy's research focuses on acute kidney injury. He is particularly interested in finding ways to help patients discontinue dialysis after acute kidney injury.

McCoy earned his medical degree at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School. He completed a residency in internal medicine at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, an affiliate of Harvard Medical School, followed by a fellowship in nephrology at Stanford University.

    Dr. McCoy is an extremely compassionate physician. I have been seeing him for a couple of years. During that time he is extremely honest and treats me as a member of his family. He suggests treatments or solutions to health issues that are not only in his area of expertise but goes beyond. I feel very well taking care by Dr. McCoy. He is an excellent physician.

    Dr. McCoy encouraged me to do a Gastric surgery which has resulted in lowering my blood pressure medication my A1c and losing 38 lbs since surgery 10 weeks ago. Without his encouragement I never would have be able to take this important step for my health. He has been an amazing physician who listens very carefully to my needs. I'm am grateful to have him in my corner & always appreciate how thorough & thoughtful he is about my health
