Welcome Dr. Patrick Coffey, DO!

Vascular Specialists of Tinley Park is pleased to welcome Dr. Patrick H. Coffey, DO, to our practice.

Dr. Coffey earned his undergraduate degree in Philosophy at University of Scranton, then graduated Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine from Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine. He went on to complete a Fellowship in Vascular Surgery at Deborah Heart and Lung Center in Browns Mills, New Jersey.

Being an osteopathic physician means Dr. Coffey is especially attuned to a holistic approach to your healthcare. While using traditional medications and interventional procedures, Dr. Coffey will also work to help your body heal itself through exercise, nutrition and lifestyle.

An award-winning physician, Dr. Coffey is also an engaging and informative speaker, educating peers about amputation prevention, wound care and the latest minimally invasive techniques. Dr. Coffey will speak in November about abdominal aortic aneurysms to Chicagoland physicians and health care providers.

Since he was a young child growing up in Pennsylvania, Dr. Coffey has wanted to be in medicine. “As far back as I can remember, I felt medicine was a good way to help people and to use my potential to the fullest,” Dr. Coffey said.

His attraction and commitment to vascular medicine and surgery became evident when, during his medical and surgical training, he learned the elegant straightforwardness of the vascular system, and how treating these conditions and diseases could do so much to improve the quality of life in his patients. “It is so gratifying to see how much better patients are doing after treatment. What we do as vascular surgeons actually improves lives.”

His enthusiasm for patient education means he gives his patients a clear understanding of their illness or disease, of the treatment options available and of how patients can improve their recovery and results by optimizing what they can control. “I will always do my best to speak in plain language we can all understand,” he said.

Helping patients improve their overall health is also important to Dr. Coffey. “I encourage healthy choices in my patients, explaining the importance of activity and a healthy lifestyle.” Very few people do everything right, and while we may never reach the carrot, we can always strive to do better.”

Dr. Coffey lives in the western suburbs, raising three amazing young children with his wife.

Dr. Coffey is board certified by both the American Osteopathic Board of Surgery, General Surgery and the National Board of Osteopathic Medical Examiners.
