I have used Dr. Smitas as my general practitioner for over 3 years and find her attentive, interested in my problems and helpful. I think caring is the best word to describe her. Never seems in a hurry and patiently listens.

Dr. Smitas is a wonderful physician. She respects and cares for the whole person, not just a disease. She is patient, kind and extremely perceptive. I respect her more than any other physician I have ever known. She cares deeply about her patients.
