Dr. Ursula McMillian Joins Cooley Dickinson Surgical Care

NORTHAMPTON — Cooley Dickinson Health Care recently welcomed Dr. Ursula McMillian to the Cooley Dickinson Medical Group’s General Surgical Care practice at 15 Atwood Dr.

McMillian joins the practice’s current roster of surgeons that includes Dr. Michelle Helms, Cooley Dickinson’s Chief of Surgery Dr. Holly Michaelson, and acute-care nurse practitioner Casey Fowler. McMillian’s arrival brings new surgical services to Cooley Dickinson and helps to offset the recent departure of longtime general surgeon Dr. Alvah Hinckley, who retired in 2021.

McMillian is a graduate of the University of Connecticut School of Medicine in Storrs, where she also earned her bachelor’s degree in physiology and neurobiology. Her general surgical internship was completed at UMass Medical School in Worcester, and she completed residency at Yale New Haven Hospital of Saint Raphael in New Haven, Conn. She earned a minimally invasive and bariatric surgical fellowship at Danbury Hospital in Danbury, Conn., and is a credentialed robotic surgeon (DaVinci) after completing a program at Mercy Medical Center in Springfield, where she worked as a surgeon from 2013 to 2018. Board-certified by the American Board of Surgery, McMillian comes to Cooley Dickinson from Holyoke Medical Center, where she worked for the last three years.
