Dr. Clay believes in a collaborative approach when it comes to helping women with their healthcare. She loves developing long-lasting relationships with her patients and treats every patient as she would a family member because “that’s the type of care every patient deserves.”
Dr. Kawami Clay has been in practice since 2007 and with Cherokee Women’s Health since 2017. She earned her medical degree from the University of Mississippi School of Medicine in Jackson, Mississippi. She completed her internship and residency in obstetrics and gynecology at Grady Memorial Hospital through Morehouse School of Medicine. Dr. Clay obtained her Bachelors of Science from Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia.
Dr. Clay is board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology and is a member of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecology. She is especially interested in minimally invasive surgery techniques that offer smaller incisions and quicker recovery times for patients.
Prior to joining Cherokee Women’s Health, Dr. Clay was in practice with Piedmont Physicians in Jasper, Georgia, and at Laurel Family Health Center as the chief of obstetrics and gynecology in Laurel, Mississippi. On her philosophy of patient care, Dr. Clay says, “I have a sister; a mother. I have girlfriends. My patient philosophy is when I walk into a patient room or operating room, I try to treat every patient as a family member. Every patient deserves respect and great health care, and when I encounter a patient, I try to give it to them as I would my sister, or my mother, or one of my very close friends.” In her free time, Dr. Clay enjoys traveling, reading, and spending time with her family.
