Meet Our Staff
David Gallagher, DVM
Dr. Gallagher graduated from the University of Florida’s College of Veterinary Medicine in 1995 (yes, he’s the old man of the clinic). Veterinary medicine is a family affair, as his wife and brother are both veterinarians.
Dr. Gallagher is married and has two children. He is an avid Gator fan and loves college football. When not taking care of pets or children, Dr. Gallagher enjoys woodworking, home renovation, and crafting activities (stained glass is a favorite). He is currently working on restoring a 1975 Datsun 280z, which is similar to the first car he owned.
Deborah Stone, DVM
Dr. Stone is a graduate of Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine. After obtaining her degree, she spent several years working in both Baltimore, MD and Los Angeles, CA before she and her husband settled here in Charlotte. Dr. Stone enjoys medicine and surgery but has taken a special interest in dental health and is now our "go to" person for tooth extractions.
When not here at Clear Creek, Dr. Stone keeps herself busy with her two kids and their after-school activities. She is a dance mom as well as a soccer mom :) The rest of her family includes 2 cats, a bearded dragon, crested gecko and a sweet little rescue Pitbull/Husky mix named Finn. Dr. Stone enjoys travelling, Pilates, ceramics, and basically all things crafty!
Megan Hesson, DVM
Dr. Megan Hesson is a 2018 graduate of Auburn University College of Veterinary Medicine. A Kentucky native, she moved to North Carolina right after graduation to enjoy the convenient access to both the mountains and the beach.
While Dr. Hesson loves all types of medicine, her special interests include surgery, dermatology, and neurology. When she’s not at work, you can find her hanging out with her four rescue pets (two cats and two dogs), traveling, reading, and singing karaoke.
Kimberly Briggs, DVM
Dr. Briggs has known she wanted to be a veterinarian since she was 5 years old and loves being a veterinarian. She went to Furman University for her undergraduate degree and knew she would move back to the Carolinas one day. After graduating from the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine, she moved to Charlotte with her husband and two dogs.
Dr. Briggs's special interests in veterinary medicine include surgery, dermatology, and preventative medicine. Her favorite parts of veterinary medicine are being able to make quality relationships with her patients and clients as well as helping pets live their healthiest and happiest lives.
When not at work, Dr. Briggs enjoys traveling, crafting, hiking, and shopping. She especially loves snuggling on the couch with her two dogs after a long day.
