Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Smith "I treat each patient as a VIP - a Very Important Patient. In our office, we like to think of our patients as guest in our home and want to be ready for their visit.

Each patient is unique, and understanding their concerns and barriers to healthy habits is just as important as knowing what dose of a medication to prescribe. Education is important so I spend time making sure patients understand their medical issues and the reasoning behind my proposed treatments. Patients are encouraged to give their input as we determine goals to improve their own health. Usually, the treatment plan involves more than just a pill - it is important to understand the impact that exercise, nutrition, stress management and sleep have on our current and future health. This team-based approach often requires more patient accountability. Patients appreciate the additional information and are more willing to make lifestyle changes when they realize how much better they feel by adopting healthier habits.  "

Dr Smith was recommended to me by another patient of his .
