King’s Daughters Medical Clinic is proud to announce their newest addition, Dr. Amanda Smith. Dr. Smith completed her medical training and residency at The University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson, MS. She received her undergraduate degree from The University of Southern Mississippi in 2002. Growing up, Dr. Smith was involved in several short-term overseas mission trips to Mexico, Honduras, Haiti, Ecuador, and Venezuela. Dr. Smith credits the lessons learned there for first pointing her towards a career in medicine. “I will always have a heart for overseas missions but I have a passion for preventive and family medicine and the needs of the people here in Mississippi.”
Dr. Smith said she has enjoyed working with and getting to know the staff at King’s Daughters Medical Clinic. “I am excited to join a group of people whose mission is the whole patient, not just the disease,” she said. “I most enjoy the outpatient clinic setting which allows me to spend more time with my patients and less time on paperwork." She says she was drawn to Family Medicine for the flexibility of seeing patients from birth to elderly, ability to do minor procedures, and the structured clinic hours to still have a personal family life outside of work.
Dr. Smith and her husband, Frank, have been married for 12 years and have been involved with music and sports ministries and overseas and local missions for many years. Together they created Fuego Soccer Ministries and last summer brought the first ever semi-pro women’s team to Mississippi (www.msfuego.org). Her husband Frank also runs Vision Productions, a videography business and films weddings, sporting events, and church events. Dr. Smith, Frank and their girls look forward to getting involved in the community and to the possibility of bringing their Mississippi Fuego soccer program to Brookhaven.
King’s Daughters Medical Clinic is located at 950 Brookway Blvd., in front of Wal-Mart. The clinic accepts appointments and walk-ins from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Friday, and from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturdays.
