Doctor Sharon MacMillan
Associates in Womens Health Care PC
Practicing in the Agawam area for the past since the year 2000, Sharon MacMillan, MD, FACOG, has special interests in menopause, wellness, and the medical and surgical management of health care for women and adolescents. Prior to returning home, the West Springfield native practiced in Sarasota, Florida, for 8 years.
A graduate of American International College, the University of Massachusetts School of Medicine, and the residency program in Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Mount Sinai Hospital in Hartford, CT, she is a Board Certified Obstetrician Gynecologist, and a Fellow of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology. She has medical privileges at both Mercy Medical Center and Baystate Medical Center.
Doctor MacMillan has been the recipient of a number of awards, including the 1997 Sarasota Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year award, for her former medical practice in Florida. She was the keynote speaker at the Forum for Women Entrepreneurs; she has served on the Doctor’s Hospital Board of Trustees, as well as the Board of Directors for Big Brothers/Big Sisters. She was the Chairman of the Medical Subcommittee of the Governor’s Task Force Against Domestic Violence, in Sarasota, Florida, and has been a subinvestigtor for the FDA.
Her health care model is based on striving to provide the highest quality of care in a warm, welcoming office environment. She believes that patients can only achieve their best outcome if they are a partner in their own health care. Patient education, lifestyle modification and healthy habits are stressed, and she believes that medication or surgery should only be considered when conservative methods are not possible, or have been unsuccessful.
She has created a State-of-the-art gynecology office, right here in Agawam, and her staff were all chosen specifically because they share the same philosophy of health care, and are professionals with a great depth of experience and expertise in their own rights. The internet age has ushered in great advances in the options for patient education, and the office has a patient portal for enhanced communication and access to the physician and staff, as well as providing patients with the opportunity to schedule appointments on their own timetable, even if the only free time that they have is at 3 AM !
Although she will miss her interactions with patients who are pregnant, Doctor MacMillan has chosen to transition her specialization to a gynecology-only practice, in order to better serve women and their individualized needs.
