Kareen J. Smith MD.,
Spending time with parents, listening to them and establishing a people-first relationship, remain the cornerstone of my medical practice.
In my daily experiences with patients, I have discovered that spending time listening to their parents and getting to know them beyond asking the typical medical questions, has helped me diagnose and treat their condition successfully.
I firmly believe that knowing my parents and patients, building excellent relationships with them, and educating them about preventive measures, help to form the bond that strengthens the reasons why I became a physician.
My goal is for my parents to know and be known. This is my purpose in medicine.
Since 2009, I have been working to provide the best parent-focused pediatric care to families in the Houston area.
My people-first focus as a physician is also why I am actively involved in my church in serving and supporting the spiritual growth of others.
Most importantly, I love God, my husband, my four children, my hobbies of dancing, cooking, photography, and travel.
