JOHN GALLAGHER, MD | Associate Financial Planner
Dr. John Gallagher is a dual board-certified Emergency Medicine and EMS Medicine physician who has diversified his time to include financial planning for the physician community. Although still practicing Emergency Medicine in Hawaii, his interest in the financial industry and his perspective as a client of IWC, led to his joining IWC in November 2021. He is our only “residency trained financial planner.”
John became an IWC client after recognizing the value of having a firm who intimately understands the medical community and the unique needs of a physician. After fully realizing the value IWC brought, John felt called to share his experience with his colleagues and began discussions with IWC about how he could contribute to the growth of the firm and bring enhanced value to the medical community.
John completed medical school at Temple University in Philadelphia and residency in Emergency Medicine at Geisinger Health system where he also worked as a Flight Physician for LifeFlight Air Ambulance. Over his career, John has become an experienced lecturer and has held leadership positions throughout his career with the American College of Emergency Physicians, the National Association of EMS Physicians, and the American College of Surgeons.
John and his wife, Heidi of 15 years, live with their 3 children on the Big Island of Hawaii. When he isn’t at his desk enjoying the view of the Pacific Ocean or in the emergency room you will probably find him in the ocean practicing his hobbies of spearfishing, sailing, and SCUBA diving.
