Forrest Smith M.D. is a board certified Internist trained at Emory University and Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston. She has practiced in Roswell, Georgia for 28 years. She has extensive training by the Institute of Functional Medicine, the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine and various seminars for Bio-Identical Hormones and natural thyroid therapies. In addition, she has trained in anti-aging skincare and is the Medical Director for the med spa in the clinic.
After 30 years in practice as a board-certified Internist, Dr. Smith felt limited in the traditional allopathic medicine model which treats disease and does not effectively promote health and wellness. The pharmaceutical approach to sick-care is not true health-care. Today, Dr. Smith has a fully integrated practice with holistic and alternative as well as traditional medicine. The goal of a Functional medicine physician is to discover and treat the root cause of illness and allow the body to heal itself given the proper nutritionals and removal of toxins. For full health she also uses Bio-Identical Hormones for female and male wellness and natural thyroid support.
