McDonough with the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement Award. An accomplished listee, Dr. McDonough celebrates many years' experience in his professional network, and has been noted for achievements, leadership qualities, and the credentials and successes he has accrued in his field. As in all Marquis Who's Who biographical volumes, individuals profiled are selected on the basis of current reference value. Factors such as position, noteworthy accomplishments, visibility, and prominence in a field are all taken into account during the selection process.

After accruing more than 40 years of excellence in the field of cardiology, Dr. McDonough retired from his practice in 1998. Before starting his professional journey, he obtained a Bachelor of Science from Seattle College in 1952, a Master of Science in physiology at Creighton University the following year, and an MD in 1954 from the same institution. With these degrees in hand, he joined the U.S. Public Health Service, and was later stationed in Chicago for two years in the realm of heart disease control, after which time he completed his education and received a Master of Public Health in Epidemiology from the University of California Berkeley in 1958. In recognition of his abundant skill, Dr. McDonough was transferred and promoted to project director of heart disease research for the USPHS in Claxton, Georgia, where he remained until 1962.

Dr. McDonough was aligned for 2 years with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he instructed students in epidemiology while remaining with the USPHS. He served as chief of the hypertension section at their Washington, D.C. headquarters, and later as a resident in medicine in New Orleans from 1966 to 1968. He conducted a two-year senior fellowship in cardiology with the University of Washington, where he became an associate professor in 1970. In 1975, Dr. McDonough established his private practice at the Allenmore Medical Center of Tacoma, which he maintained ably until his retirement in 1998.

In the course of his sterling career, Dr. McDonough was the recipient of such honors as entry into the societies of Alpha Epsilon Delta and Alpha Omega Alpha. He is recognized as a fellow of the American College of Physicians, the American Heart Association, and the American College of Cardiology. Now fully retired, Dr. McDonough has had more time to dedicate to one of his longtime passions: writing. In addition to publishing articles pertinent to his professional field, he has written two books of narrative prose and four books of poetry, including "Casting About: 100 Lyric Poems from the Heart," in 2013 and "The Good Doctor," released in 2016.

Dr. McDonough's other avocations consist of fishing, boating, jogging, reading, and swimming. He has been married to his wife, Jane, for more than 60 years, and together they are the proud parents of seven children. Their children have delivered the couple untold joy by introducing not only 10 grandchildren, but eight great-grandchildren as well.

In recognition of outstanding contributions to his profession and the Marquis Who's Who community, Dr. McDonough has been featured on the Albert Nelson Marquis Lifetime Achievement website. Please visit for more information about this honor.
