Meet Donnie Smith, the smiling face you often see on the front porch of Mercy Clinic has been with Mercy Clinic since the beginning. Donnie was integral in the planning, demolition and remodel of the current home of Mercy Clinic.
Donnie is a native of Dallas, a graduate of Baylor University, and a local Fort Worth attorney. Donnie is married to Michele and they have three adult children. During football season, you’ll find him officiating high school games all over the metroplex. He easily admits that one receives more than one gives when volunteering on the security detail. Sure, there are the occasional speeding cars in the parking lot, but Donnie receives joy as he sees burdens lifted off the patients of the clinic. He can see it in their faces. The difference in demeanor between 4:30PM as patients wait on the porch until they are departing with helpful information, instruction from the doctors and nurses, and a prescription is very noticeable.
Donnie’s claim to fame here is his devotion to maintaining our building from the destructive habits of the squirrels. He will be happy to relay a story – just ask him about the squirrels.
