Michael K. Smith, M.D.

Dr. Smith moved to Cary, NC from Syracuse, NY in 1984 and helped establish Western Wake Pediatrics in 1988.  He has a special interest in early childhood education and while in Syracuse, Dr. Smith served on the Student Support Team at a local elementary school.  After moving to this area he was on the board at the St. Michaels ECC and volunteered for the Wake County Health Department at Washington Elementary Ready to Learn Center.  Since 1999, Dr. Smith has served as a committee member and then as a board member for Wake County Smart Start.  Recently, he was appointed to the State Child Care Commission.

Thirty-two years of watching young children develop into young adults has brought an appreciation of those early years.  The excitement of discovery and the fascination with learning can be captured early and sustained within the right nurturing environment.  Dr. Smith is eager to be helpful in guiding parents through these wonderful years.
