Dr Nimrod Smit | General Practitioner

Dr Nimrod Smit originally hails from Pretoria, South Africa, where he completed his medical degree. Dr Smit then spent a year in the South African Air Force in aviation medicine. After working in a group general practice, Dr Smit successfully started his own practice before immigrating to Adelaide, Australia. Here Dr Smit continued training in cosmetic fillers and anti-wrinkle injections.

Dr Smit completed his Fellowship of the Royal College of General Practitioners in 2010 and became an Australian citizen in 2011. In 2012, he moved to Brisbane and in 2015 made the great choice to move to the Gold Coast where he practiced in Robina for four years. During this time Dr Smit also completed the Australasian Certification in Anti-Ageing Medicine.

In his spare time (what little there is), Dr Smit enjoys running and weight training. But when it’s finally time to put the feet up, Dr Smit unwinds with a good book, any sci-fi movies or television series, as well as any documentaries concerning health and life sciences, astronomy and technology.
