I originally grew up in Florida and migrated to Georgia for medical school and residency. I was a first generation college student as well as the first person in my family to become a physician. When I'm not working, I enjoy traveling the world as much as possible, cooking, as well as a good book. I enjoy the field of psychiatry because it gives me a unique opportunity to help others.

    Dr Smallwood is caring and very patient with me but he isn’t condescending. He is well versed in his field and isn’t afraid to share his knowledge with me so I can understand my illness. I travel 5 hours to see him and it’s worth it. Bottom line is he’s a grea t Doctor.
