About Me

Care Philosophy

Dr. Smith's approach to patient care is cutting-edge in terms of IT and  the Electronic Medical Record. Yet he remains traditional in his interactions with patients and their families. He listens, he talks, and he exams. He believes there is no technologic substitute for hands-on care. He prides himself on developing an individualized relationship with each patient.
