Joshua Smith MD
As Dr. Smith was growing up on a Southern Illinois farm, he was always fascinated by science and wanted to become a physician at an early age. He was more drawn to this thought when he found out how hard farm work was and has not looked back since. Becoming a pediatrician was a choice made in medical school: being around kids all day and seeing sick kids become well was fulfilling for him.
After graduating from Southern Illinois University School of Medicine in 2004 and completing a pediatrics residency at Cardinal Glennon/St. Louis University in 2007, Dr. Smith joined Brentwood Pediatrics. He has enjoyed seeing newborns grow into young children since that time and loves to serve his patients and their families.
Dr. Smith is married to a beautiful and patient woman who lovingly raises their two children. During time away from practicing medicine, he spends time with his family, is involved in his local church, watches sports, reads, and exercises when he can.
