About Me

Care Philosophy

I came to Duke for medical school in 1981 remained here for all of my training and joined the faculty in 1991. I enjoy participating in the care of patients in all phases of kidney disease. I have a special interest in kidney transplantation and I particularly value the opportunity to see the same patient over time.

I have a rare condition that Dr. Smith was able to diagnose and get me into treatment early enough for a very positive outcome. He is kind, caring, and compassionate. I highly recommend him.
