He has extensive experience in sports respiratory medicine and currently serves as the team referral physician specialist in asthma and allergy for the University of Louisville Athletic Department.

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Smith "For over 30 years, board-certified allergist and immunologist, C. Steven Smith, MD and his staff have provided proven relief for allergy and asthma sufferers in the Ohio River Valley. Dr. Smith works with variable combinations of sinus allergy, hay fever, recurrent upper respiratory infections with constant throat drainage, snoring, and headaches.  His approach involves the long-term picture.

In AAAC's practice, common, but overlooked food, bladder, bowel, pet, and unusual skin rash issues are not uncommon to Dr. Smith. The office employs standard allergy evaluating techniques, but prides themselves in customizing allergy tests to diagnose unusual cases when the patient's case history necessitates unique evaluations.

Dr. Smith has developed a line of products to benefit pet allergy sufferers sold nationwide.  Additionally, his patent-pending nasal spray is being used by hundreds of allergy sufferers to control their sinus/allergy miseries with minimal effort, yielding great relief."
