Dr. Brandy Gheesling knew from the time she was a little girl that she wanted to be a pediatrician. She began her training with her undergraduate degree at Augusta State University with a BS in Biology and Computer Science. She went on to earn her medical degree from Mercer University School of Medicine and completed her pediatric internship and residency at the Medical College of Georgia.

She is board certified by the American Board of Pediatrics and is a fellow of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). She is on staff at both Memorial University Medical Center and St Josephs/Candler hospitals. Dr Gheesling is a graduate of the 2021 Leadership Savannah class. She is currently serving her second term as the District XIII representative for the Georgia Chapter of the AAP.

Having breastfed all three of her children, Dr. Gheesling has a great passion for breastfeeding and in 2018 she became an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC) so she could be better equipped to help her patients and their parents with breastfeeding. She serves on the Breastfeeding Committee & the EPIC Breastfeeding Subcommittee for the Georgia Chapter of the AAP. She is also an EPIC Breastfeeding speaker for the Georgia Chapter of the AAP so she can help teach the physicians of Georgia about breastfeeding. She is a member of the Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine. She is currently the only pediatrician in the area that both practices Breastfeeding Medicine and is recognized as a Breastfeeding Friendly Pediatrician by the Georgia Chapter of the AAP & The Georgia Breastfeeding Coalition.
