Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Smith "Why Choose a Primary Care Physician? Experts estimate that over 100,000 lives could be saved each year in the United States if patients focused more on the importance of prevention. Having an ongoing relationship with a primary care physician (PCP) who you see on a regular basis, especially when you?re feeling well, is one of the best ways to ensure long-term good health."
