About Dr. Smith

Dr. Kameo Smith is a board certified family physician. She grew up in Loveland, Colorado and attended medical school in Pomona California at the Western University of Health Sciences College of Osteopathic Medicine of the Pacific. She completed her residency training in Greeley, Colorado. She directed a community health center in Socorro, New Mexico for 3 years before coming to Cortez in 2007. She has several dogs, loves to read, travel, scrap book, go on adventures with her husband and friends, and watch the Broncos.

Dr. Smith said for many patients, prenatal care can feel routine, These appointments help doctors and nurses build stronger relationships with patients.“When people aren’t comfortable for whatever reason, they are more anxious,” Smith said, “so I think making a patient feel comfortable and at ease with something that is a very natural process is extremely important.” Dr. Smith says when she counsels patients about what to expect in labor, she tells them to keep their options open. In her experience, things don’t always go as planned, but that doesn’t mean they don’t go well.

“It’s one of those things in life you have very little control over – and that is OK,” she said. “You have to be flexible, and respond to things as they change so you can have a safe outcome for everyone. Communication is a huge part of that.”

Now accepting new obstetrical patients.

Meet Teresa Brown-Sanchez, Nurse Practitioner

Teresa Brown-Sanchez is a nurse practitioner at the Southwest School-Based Health Clinic at Montezuma-Cortez High School. Teresa completed her undergraduate at Washburn University and her advanced training at University of Nebraska Medical Center. Teresa provides care for students at the School-Based Health Center and one of her specialties is diabetic care. She hopes that she can be a great resource for those living with diabetes or parents of children with diabetes.

Teresa’s interests include cheering on my children at sporting events, hiking, biking, boating, camping, and running half marathons. She said you can often spot her around town with her dog, Moose.

“My care philosophy is to provide the patient with the most comprehensive detailed map, with recommended routes, to get the patient to their health goals and then (accept/redirect/support) the patient if they choose a different route. As a nurse practitioner I strive to listen to the patient and hear what they expect from a visit rather than focusing on my health care provider agenda. I feel that with this listening approach I have uncovered many underlying problems for the patient.”
