About Me

Dr. Smith's primary goal as a physician is to address his patients not as just a collection of symptoms or medical problems but as a whole person. His philosophy is that the most high tech scan or procedure is of little benefit unless at least equal time is spent listening to the person who has entrusted him with their health.
