Dr. Becky McGilligan, MD

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. 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 and her family 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 family. She’s an avid science fiction fan and enjoys exercising.
