Amanda McBane, MD

Dr. McBane studied and earned her MD from the University of Missouri – Columbia in 2001 and completed her Family Medicine residency at the University of South Alabama in Mobile.

Growing up in a military family meant frequent moves which offered opportunities to interact with a great variety of people. This planted the seeds for her valuing personal relationships while providing healthcare. Despite moving away from the Alabama Gulf Coast on a couple of occasions, she has found her heart connected to the people of this area pulling her back.

Early in her medical career, she became the mother of triplets. This has been challenging as she strives to balance work and home life but has also given a new level of perspective and understanding as a physician.  Dr. McBane is not only passionate about comprehensive family care in private practice and urgent care settings, she also enjoys teaching and has experience teaching at medical schools and residency programs.

She is very excited that Focus-MD is a practice encompassing her love of relationships with people of all ages in Baldwin County, and looks forward to helping patients and their families learn and understand the unique challenges of ADHD.


Laurie Gillespie, MD, FAAP


A Georgia native, Dr. Laurie Gillespie, attended Mercer University School of Medicine and completed her residency at the Medical Center of Central Georgia.  A board certified pediatrician, she joins us after spending the last 10 years in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia where she practiced general pediatrics. While in Canada, Dr. Gillespie served on many committees and boards, including the Maternal/Child Committee at Yarmouth Regional Hospital, as well as the OB/Newborn, Emergency Medicine, and Infection Disease Control Committees at Habersham County Medical Center.

Working with patients with ADHD, as well as raising a son with ADHD and learning disabilities motivated Dr. Gillespie to focus her attention on becoming an expert in this area in order to fully benefit kids and their parents. After learning about Focus-MD’s dedication to improving the standard of care to patients with ADHD, she decided to make the move back down South to join our Daphne, AL office.

Dr. Gillespie enjoys tennis, kayaking, camping, horseback riding, and downhill skiing.  She is looking forward to swapping her snow skis for water skis, now that she is back in the South!
