Kim Smith, MD, is an OB/GYN at Providence Women's Healthcare in Roswell, Suwanee, and Atlanta, Georgia. When speaking with Dr. Smith, patients get a sense of someone who has come to inner peace and an attitude of gratitude for her many opportunities and blessings.
Dr. Smith was raised in Houston, Texas, and has one younger brother who lives in Baltimore, who is a faculty in anesthesia at Johns Hopkins Medical School. Dr. Smith attended undergraduate school at Rice University in Houston. Being a Houston native, it was an easy choice to stay there for medical school and her OB/GYN residency program at Baylor College of Medicine.
Dr. Smith and her husband, Nathaniel, have been married for 29 years. They met in medical school and their deep-seated love of healing and helping has been an important bond in their happy marriage. Nathaniel is an infectious disease doctor and currently serves as one of the four deputy directors at the CDC.
Before joining Providence Women’s Healthcare, Dr. Smith had a private practice for four years in Katy, Texas, and then served as a medical missionary in Kenya, East Africa. She returned to the states for a few years in Little Rock, when her heart led her back to Kenya once again for another three years. In Kenya, Dr. Smith and her husband worked with HIV/AIDS projects under the University of Maryland and Fistula Project, funded by private endowments from Canada.
Dr. Smith returned to Arkansas and joined Central Arkansas Women’s Group (an award-winning practice affiliated with Saline Memorial hospital), where she served for over 10 years. She and her family have settled in Atlanta, and she has now found a new home with Providence Women’s Healthcare.
Being in practice for 25 years, Dr. Smith’s favorite part of being an OB/GYN is the opportunity to get to know her patients at a personal level. Dr. Smith enjoys the feeling of knowing that she can help a mother bring a healthy baby into the world, and she is blessed to see the joy every day on the faces of her patients and their families. Dr. Smith is a breast cancer survivor. She uses her first-hand experience with breast cancer to relate to her patients and has developed a practice that focuses on making sure they are proactive about their health.
Dr. Smith and Nathaniel have four children, Penny, Oscar, Malachi, and Kathryn. Their favorite family activity is serving on short-term mission trips every year or two. Their children enjoy long-distance running, hunting, fishing, and crafts. The family’s favorite vacations spots include Masai Mara in East Africa, Victoria Falls in Zambia, and Jamaica, a little closer to home.
