Over the years that we have been with Dr. Steve Smith we have found that the one trait that we find the most desirable in his relationship with us is TRUST. During our visits many issues are brought out, some directly related to the illness, others somewhat related, but they are important to us and want them to be discussed, which brings us to the next trait, an INTERESTED LISTENER. As a patient, one can look into his eyes and his facial expressions and body language, all of these are responding to your input while sorting out the necessary details, and formulating questions to ask, which allows for further questions or conclusions. There have been several occasions which he was not locally available, but was available via cell phone and took the call without regard of how it affected his personal life, it was a patient who needed his SERVICE, and he RESPONDED accordingly, there again AVAILABILITY. In the advancement of medicines, tests, units to diagnose problems, and identifying ailments, these are all wonderful, but these are just tools which give information to a person, but what, where, and when to use the correct tool, takes a SKILLED doctor not only to use. but to interpret these findings and make the correct diagnosis and treatment, giving us KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERIENCE. Overall, when you put all these traits together you get a complete package, a Doctor dedicated to his profession, who treats every patient like family, and cares deeply about their well being and health, and proves it day after day. While this story is about the Doctor, let's not forget his staff, as he hired them and they are and reflect what his image is to patients and that means a lot.

Being new to this area and having been through some family related tragedies, Dr. Smith embraced my physical condition with unparalleled zeal. He literally brought me out of the ashes and nurtured me back to the best health I have been in for years. He is kind, gentle and extremely knowledgable about all aspects of the human body and spirit.

Dr. Steve Smith has been a blessing to my whole family. I was the first patient to enroll in my family during a time when my current PCP couldn't fit me in and had referred me to go to the ER. As a healthcare professional, I knew this was not the most appropriate level of care for what I needed. I enrolled as a patient and was seen on the same day and diagnostics tests were ordered to confirm what we suspected, kidney stones. Dr. Smith personally made the arrangements for me to be seen by a specialist the same day. I ended up having surgery to remove the stone several days later after conservative methods were unsuccessful. During this time, Dr. Smith frequently checked up on me and my recovery. What I realized through this period, was how different my healthcare was handled and how I personally felt about taking care of myself. It was time. I now had a partner in my healthcare. Dr Smith was not only my doctor, but a trusted friend and coach. My initial wellness exam had multiple areas of improvement needed. My labs had more red than green and I was overweight. Through my relationship with Dr Smith, I have lost weight, turned all the red lab values to green and ran my first half marathon and completed a mud obstacle race! This is a success story, especially since a year ago, I was over weight and was not a runner or any other kind of athlete! Needless to say, I have shared my success with anyone that will listen, including my husband, daughter, mother, sister, brother-in-law, several colleagues at work and now all of them are patients of Dr. Smith. Thank you Dr. Smith for all you do for me and my family. You are a blessing to us!

Dr. Smith has been our doctor for 18 years. He was the first doctor recommended to me when I moved to Plant City and NEVER have we second guessed that decision. Personally, Dr. Smith has been more than a doctor to me, he has been a close friend and confidant in so many ways. I truly cherish our lunches together and the opportunity for him to unwind with me and vice versa. Dr. Smith has transformed our lives in so many ways and brought about a new and much healthier lifestyle in our home. My wife and I have lost the equivalent of another person between us and exercise is common place in our home once again. It is very rare in today's society and economic climate to find a doctor who give you more than the allotted 2 minutes of his time or makes you feel like he is bending over backwards to fit you into his schedule... Dr Smith always finds the time for everyone one of his patients and you never feel like an intruder into his time or that you have overextended your time in his office. The faith of Dr Smith shows through in everything he does. While there are many other doctors in our town, I thank God that there is but one Dr Smith and I dread the day that either he retires or we move away because I know he can never be replaced.

I feel very fortunate to have Dr Smith as our family doctor, Not only do I like him, I trust him to give us the best medical care. I can call him at any time from any place, he answers his phone, If I go to his office for an appointment, I never wait more than 15 minutes till I see him. How lucky can I get ?

A great experience every time I visit Dr Smith's Office. His staff, Natalie and Sarah, are very professional and competent. They, along with Dr. Smith make the visit positive experience.

I think the first thing you realize about dr smith is that he really cares about his patients. the only reason I joined mdvip was to stay with dr smith and it was well worth it. when you visit his office it's more seeing a friend than your dr. his staff is very professional but they keep things light hearted which helps take the sting out of going to the doctors. he is always there for me and is responsible for me being as healthy as I am.
