Health Services of North Texas announces the addition of a new Women’s Health Provider, Ilia J. Smith Randle, APRN, CNM, WHNP-BC. Mrs. Smith Randle is dually certified in women’s health and midwifery. Her experience in women’s health and prenatal care began in 2009 where she began practicing Midwifery and Women’s Health at the University of Chicago Medical Center.
With sincere compassion and a smile that can light up the room, you will find that being in a women’s health visit with Mrs. Smith Randle is comfortable and educational. Providing education and information are of the utmost importance to her, “One of my highest priorities is educating my patients about their bodies, and I especially love helping women bring new life into the world.” Mrs. Smith Randle spent many years serving the Chicago community as a Certified Nurse Midwife and community health educator, bringing a wealth of experience to HSNT’s Women’s Health program.
When asked about her patient philosophy and what is important to her, Mrs. Smith Randle has this to say, “I try to personalize the patient experience, every woman’s body is a little different and their needs vary. For example, there are so many choices for contraception, what is best for one woman may not be best for another. There’s no one size fits all.”
Mrs. Smith Randle specializes in gynecological disorders including heavy bleeding, painful periods, fibroids, and painful intercourse. “Women do not have to endure these conditions, there are solutions and I am here to help guide you.”
Nutrition is a key component in all of Mrs. Smith Randle’s patient visits, “Every time you eat or drink you are either feeding disease or fighting it…. What you eat really does impact your overall health as a woman.”
Adding Mrs. Smith Randle to HSNT’s Women’s Health Provider Team will increase HSNT’s ability to meet the growing need in our community for prenatal care, family planning services and overall women’s health.
