Retiring Cardiac Surgeons Leave Lasting Impact on Central Valley

Oct 28, 2020

James-300-x-250The Cardiovascular Institute of Doctors Medical Center would like to congratulate two longtime cardiac surgeons who were instrumental in the development of the hospital’s heart surgery program: Dr. James MacMillan and Dr. Joe Neal. Both recently retired.

Both physicians led the Doctors Medical Center heart surgery program during the 80's and 90's. Dr. MacMillan came to Modesto in 1978 and Dr. Neal, who grew up in Modesto, returned in 1982.

While not replaceable, Dr. MacMillan and Dr. Neal leave a legacy of excellence both in the operating room and in the community.

Doctors Medical Center thanks both men for their incredible service to the hospital, patients and community. They have touched so many lives and will be greatly missed by their colleagues.

Congratulations on your retirement, Dr. MacMillan and Dr. Neal!
