“Top Pediatricians in America”

National Republican Congressional Committee, Physicians’ Advisory Board

Although Dr. McEachern adamantly refuses to register with any political party, he accepted a gracious invitation to serve as a representative to this board in 2003 and 2004. There are so many issues surrounding the absurdities in our health care system, it is certain that this site would crash under the weight of such discussions.

The Clumber Spaniel Club of America

Dr. McEachern is the proud owner of a majestic Clumber Spaniel who is named Shatner. Let’s face it, being a member of the Clumber Spaniel Club of America has nothing to do with medicine, but it makes him really cool. Embrace your envy, it’s a healthy reaction. Shatner won all kinds of awards as a puppy, but he has a slight bite issue that kept him out of Westminster. This example gives you the ammunition to remind your kids to brush and floss regularly. Dr. McEachern also adores his wee Scottish Terrier, Mr. Brodie, who he and his wife rescued a few years back. Brodie and Shatner are inseparable buddies, a lesson for us all.
