Francis Goldshmid, MD is a family medicine physician who is fellowship-trained in surgical obstetrics. He is originally from Philadelphia, PA, and is a first generation Russian-American. He attended medical school at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, TX and completed his family medicine residency at John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, TX. He then completed his maternal-child health fellowship at the same institution, during which time he also spent some months providing surgical obstetric services overseas in Uganda. Soon after, he met his partner, Kelsey Anderson, RD, LD, CNSC, and after both practicing in the very rural west Texas town of Alpine for the last year, they decided to relocate to the greener pastures of the beautiful Four Corners area. He is fluent in Russian and near-fluent in Spanish. His interests outside of medicine include making music, long-boarding, exploring nature, organic chemistry, and Buddhism. He and his partner are absolutely thrilled to be working with Southwest Health and to have the honor and privilege of caring for the patients here.

He will practice alongside Marcelyn LePique, FACOG, Kameo Smith, DO, and Erin Schmitt, FACOG, MPH, DO. To schedule an appointment, contact us at 970-565-4291.
