Dr. Smith's Care Philosophy

As a surgeon I can offer the opportunity for cure of many disease processes with a definitive intervention. Successfully achieving this requires cooperation between me, the patient, the patient's family, and other physicians. With careful counseling and communication, we can agree on a plan tailored to the individual patient to work towards the goals of cure and/or symptom relief
