bobMeet Our Board-Certified Pediatrician, Dr. Kim

Holly Smith, CPNPHolly Smith, CPNP

Holly comes to us from Peachtree City after working with Peachtree Pediatrics for the last couple of years.  Holly obtained her Nurse Practitioner degree from Emory where she received both her Bachelor’s and her Master’s degrees and was a Lettie Whitehead Scholar.

While in school she did a large portion of her clinical rotations with Dr. Kim’s team, so she is very familiar with our philosophy of care and patient service. We were very impressed with her then and are super excited to have someone who understands the special SSP culture of individualized personal care joining us.
