Latisha Smith-Chase, Internal Medicine

Dr. Latisha Smith-Chase is a permanent physician at the Burney Health Center and Chief Medical Officer for Mountain Valleys Health Centers.

Dr. Smith-Chase is a native of Detroit, Michigan and completed her internal medicine residency there as well. She also had sub-specialty training in Undersea and Hyperbaric Medicine at the University of Hawaii. She spent 7 years in Hawaii where she treated scuba divers from as far away as Tahiti. She remains a SCUBA diving enthusiast. However, her favorite hobby is singing chorale, opera, and musical theater.

“We are excited to have Dr. Smith-Chase join our team of providers”, says Dave Jones, CEO for Mountain Valleys. “Finding doctors who want to work in extremely rural areas is unique. We are very grateful to have her as part of our team and as our new Chief Medical Officer.”

She will be practicing at the Burney Health Center as an internist, specializing in adult care.
