Dr. Ioana Smirnov
Family practice, maternity and newborn care
Dr. Jane Mcgregor will be covering Dr. Smirnov who is on maternity leave. We welcome Dr. Mcgregor into our Grow Health Team!
Dr. Ioana Smirnov was born in Romania, and moved to Vancouver with her parents as a young child. She studied Microbiology and then completed her medical degree at UBC. She and her husband have been eyeing the Island lifestyle for a while and are very happy to call themselves official Islanders since 2011! They have spent time in Comox, Nanaimo, Duncan, and Saltspring Island before settling down in Victoria. In 2015 they joyfully welcomed a baby boy to their family.
Dr. Smirnov is dedicated to the full spectrum of Family Practice and also has a special interest in maternity care. She is very excited to join the Grow team and get to know her new patients. Outside of medicine she enjoys spending time with family and friends, and loves being active, especially if it involves the great outdoors.
