If Crusher were asked how long she had served as CMO on the E-D, would she care to count the year (season 2) she was "on sabbatical"? Perhaps McCoy took a leave of absence and Piper was his replacement during that time.
Only if you really personally want to place Star Trek VI in 2291, otherwise it's easily a straightforward case that McCoy succeeded Piper as Enterprise CMO in 2266 and served in that capacity for 27 years before moving on in 2293.
"Personally"? Is there an official record of when McCoy signed aboard?

If not, then *every* timeline is "personal" to someone who wants it to be that way.
Not really. Ignoring what some novels would say, there's no reason to assume that a year or two passed between Star Treks VI and VII, which would indeed place McCoy's arrival on the Enterprise in 2266 and match up with other dates given in later Trek productions.
