About Our Physicians

Dr. Becky McGilligan

Dr. Becky McGilligan has a passion for helping people become and stay healthy. She is driven by the belief that her patients are not simply the sum of their body parts and illnesses, but instead subscribes to the "whole person" view of healthy living. Physical exercise, a healthy diet, and a healthy mental outlook are just as important as lab values. It is this body-mind-spirit view that helps her get to know her patients and find ways to work together with them to get them to true health.

Dr. Becky McGilligan Profile

Dr. McGilligan knew from a young age that she was born to be a physician and structured her life in a way to accomplish that goal. She graduated from The University of West Florida (summa cum laude) in 2004 and The Florida State College of Medicine (summa cum laude) in 2009. While in medical school she was inducted in to the Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society, an honor reserved for the top 10% of graduating physicians. She was honored to receive the J. Ocie Harris Outstanding Student Award, signifying that her alma mater considered her "the best all-around promise of becoming a physician of the highest caliber", the American Medical Women's Association Glasgow-Rubin Achievement Citation denoting "female student who demonstrates leadership, service, and advocacy and rank in the top 10 percent of the graduating class", as well as Florida Geriatrics Society Award for "outstanding student in geriatrics".

She, her husband, and their then infant daughter moved to Cincinnati after medical school graduation for her residency at The Christ Hospital. She completed her internal medicine training and Chief Resident year in 2012 and went into practice in Anderson Township where she has been since 2012.

Recognizing that today's traditional primary care model did not provide her patients with the care and access she believed in, she decided to go out on her own and create McGilligan MD Direct Primary Care. Dr. McGilligan envisions medical care as a relationship between the doctor and the patient: private, without interference from insurance companies and regulation. She feels that the patient should be able to make the decisions about his or her life and health, not an overpaid executive.

Outside of the office, Dr. Becky enjoys spending time with her husband Brian and their children Zoey and Max.

Dr. Laura Sharp

Dr. Laura Sharp, a Cincinnati native, moved to Dayton in 1988 for the next eight years, where she initially received her BS in Biology from the University of Dayton, then, in 1992, her Medical Degree from Wright State University Boonshoft School Of Medicine. She returned to Cincinnati to complete her Family Medicine residency at the University of Cincinnati, a program that also teaches international medicine. During residency, Dr. Sharp was able to participate in a medical brigade to Honduras, thus fostering an interest in that facet of medicine.

After residency, she initially practiced in Northern KY for six years, before finally settling in her home neighborhood of Anderson, so as to be nearer to her home and kids.

Now in her 20th year of practice, Dr. Sharp feels traditional medical practices don't allow for the quality care that can be achieved with the Direct Primary Care model. She believes in a holistic style of medicine: body, mind, and spirit are equally important.

Her goal is always to encourage a healthy lifestyle and to reduce or eliminate unnecessary medications; instead, replace them with good eating habits and routine exercise. She encourages an active, healthy spiritual life as well. She is very excited to join McGilligan MD and to be able to offer her patients longer office visits with individualized treatment plans.

Outside of the office, Dr. Sharp enjoys spending time with her four (fabulous) kids, exercising - especially pilates and biking - and exploring alternative health practices and spirituality.
