Katie Smith, PA
Katie Smith, PA, is one of the latest and greatest additions to Sixteenth Street. Katie loves how grateful every patient is at Sixteenth Street and how small gestures can mean a lot to someone who is genuinely concerned about their own or their loved one’s well-being. She also loves having a great group of providers that are approachable and always willing to answer questions.
Katie’s philosophy is to listen to the patients and educate. She makes a point to listen to their stories before addressing their concerns and talking through why they feel the way that they do. Even if patients don’t receive the treatment they thought they needed, they can walk away knowing that someone sincerely heard their concerns and an understanding of why the concerns were handled in the way they were.
Being in urgent care, Katie gets to see patients that may not know what is wrong with them, but have the basic understanding that something just isn’t right. Many times, Katie is the one that gets to reassure the patients that she knows what is happening and that all will be ok. Even if the patient can’t pinpoint what is causing his or her pain, at Sixteenth Street there are resources to give the attention he or she needs.
