"I hope to be a resource for questions and concerns, whether a patient is well or sick." Dr. Gillingham earned his medical degree at the University of Oklahoma. He completed his internship and residency in family medicine at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. Before joining Providence Medical Group, he practiced emergency medicine for two years. He is board certified in family medicine. In the office, Dr. Gillingham invites his patients to bring their sense of humor, as well as their medications. He enjoys getting to know his patients and working with them as a team for their well-being. Outside of the office, Dr. Gillingham enjoys spending time with his two daughters and his wife, Melanie, who has a Ph.D. in nutrition.
