Dr. O’Mahony was highly respected by his peers and much loved by his many patients for always going above and beyond the call of duty in his passion and commitment to patient care. Up until the time of his passing, his patients could still depend on him to make house calls.
Dr. O’Mahony was a family physician in private practice in Clarenville for 43 years. For many of those years he was the only family doctor in Clarenville. During his long career he contributed significantly to the Clarenville area and he was highly involved in the community, serving as a town councilor for a term and as a director of the Clarenville Area Chamber of Commerce, which he was a member of throughout his entire career.
Dr. O’Mahony was honoured for his many years of dedicated service at the Clarenville Area Chamber of Commerce’s 3rd annual Business Excellence Awards Banquet & Annual Meeting on February 24, 2010.
