Dr. Vincent Proy, a 2000 graduate of Corry Area High School, might live 2,200 miles from his hometown, but his best friend still lives here in Corry.

Dr. Vincent Proy, a 2000 graduate of Corry Area High School, might live 2,200 miles from his hometown, but his best friend still lives here in Corry.

That’s why Vincent Proy, M.D., the son of Dr. Bernard and Nancy Proy, is so excited about coming back home to Corry. He’ll be working side-by-side with his best friend — his dad — every day.

“I cannot wait to work with my father,” Vincent Proy said about his plan to return to Corry in about a year. “Practicing medicine alongside my father has been a dream of mine since I was a child.”

Vincent Proy, who is currently in his last year of family medicine residency at Ventura County Medical Center in Ventura, Calif., considers himself fortunate to have his dad as a mentor.

“He is incredibly knowledgeable and talented, and practices medicine with a genuine and caring heart,” Vincent Proy said about his father.

After Vincent Proy completes his residency in July 2010, he plans to return to Corry where he will work at the Medical Group, 315 York St.

Nancy Proy said she believes her son will set the bar when he returns to Corry to practice medicine.

“I believe he is the first son of a physician to return to Corry and work with his father,” Nancy Proy said.

Vincent Proy, 27, said the prospect of working with his father is not only exciting, it also gives him great pride.

“Additionally, I feel extremely honored to be the first offspring of a physician in Corry to return and practice in Corry,” he said.
