Our Residents

Gloria Benesh, DO PGY-3

Dr. Benesh came to UH St. John Medical Center because she was impressed with the relationships and camaraderie between the residents. She also was interested in the level of independency offered to our residents in the clinic and the expertise of our attending faculty.
Her medical interests include, women's health, adolescent medicine, and geriatric medicine. She plans to continue working in Family Medicine in the Cleveland area after she graduates this June.
In her days away from medicine, Dr. Benesh likes to explore new parts of Cleveland.

Daniel Harrington, DO PGY-3

After completing his third year of medical school at UH St. John Medical Center, Dr. Harrington wanted to look for a family medicine program closer to home on the east coast. Towards the end of the interview season, he realized that none of the other programs were as good as this one. He states that this program offers the inpatient and outpatient training you need to become a skilled clinician. With an affiliated sports medicine program through University Hospitals, game and event coverage was readily accessible, allowing him to build a competitive resume for fellowship application.
Dr. Harrington has been very pleased with his experience at UH SJMC and says "Nowhere else can you find a program director that advocates for your success as much as Dr. Gotsis, and that can easily be said for all of our family medicine preceptors. This is definitely the place to be!"

Chad McCain, DO PGY-2

Dr. McCain chose to come to University Hospitals St. John Medical Center because of the great attending staff and because of how SJMC and Westshore Primary Care are dedicated to providing great medical care to their patients. He says that having a smaller community hospital at SJMC so closely tied to Westshore Primary care allows patients a great amount of continuity and he looks forward to taking care of his patients both in the clinic and the hospital.
Dr. McCain chose Family Medicine because he enjoys seeing patients of all ages, especially children and adolescents. He is passionate about preventative medicine both in the clinic and the hospital and always makes sure that all of his patients are receiving the most appropriate medications to extend and improve their quality of life. He is also very involved in integrating technology into the practice of medicine to improve the quality of care and education that he provides to his patients.

Sea-Oh McConville, DO PGY-2

Hailing from the West coast, Dr. McConville came to University Hospitals St. John Medical Center because her and her husband (UH SJMC IM resident), were looking to find a community of caring people and a nurturing environment to develop their skills to become excellent physicians in the future. They wanted a place where medical knowledge is taught through an evidence based approach, and where they would be encouraged to grow and learn leadership skills. Dr. McConville is confident that she found that at UH SJMC.
Her medical interests are based in a sincere belief that patient education and collaboration can help people to understand how their bodies work and how to develop and meet goals for health. Particularly, she is most interested in Preventative Care, Women's health, Adolescent health, LGBTQIA health and Residency Development.
After graduation, Dr. McConville would like to work within a Family Medicine residency program, seeing her own patient but also fostering excellent and nurturing educational experiences for future family physicians.
