She is a member of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners and has special interest in family medicine and women’s health.

Atkins will serve patients out of HopeHealth Pediatrics in Manning. She received her master’s degree in physician assistant studies from Charleston Southern University in North Charleston. From Forest City, N.C., Atkins is a member of South Carolina Academy of Physician Assistants.

Smalls will serve pain management patients out of the HopeHealth office on Palmetto Street in Florence. She graduated from the University of South Carolina with a master’s degree in social work. A native of Lake City, Smalls is certified by the Association for Social Work Boards and is a member of the Council of Nephrology Social Workers. She enjoys gardening and uses it as a therapeutic intervention to relieve stress.
