Alan A. Smith, MD

My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I strive to produce a welcoming practice environment. My office has become a place where patients feel comfortable and look forward to visiting. My staff and I treat everyone as if they are our family members. Each patient has their own unique needs, and I believe their care should be as unique as they are. By implemening individualized care approaches, I can often avoid prescribing medications and recommend progressive diet and exercise regimes along with some natural products. I welcome the opportunity to speak with you about the benefits of being part of my personalized, preventive healthcare practice.
