My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I like to know my patients at a deeper level, relating to them as both their physician as well as a trusted friend. This unique relationship allows me to listen, teach, encourage and guide my patients through the complexities of medicine and their personal healthcare needs. I integrate compassion, integrity and at times devilish humor into my practice and my patients can expect to find thorough and superior health care blended with a relaxed and custom-tailored wellness approach to medicine. It's my goal that this personalized relationship and comprehensive approach to my patients' medical care will help them achieve their optimal health.

Hi Dr. Smith - 2016 was a year of a few issues ! Blue Cross/Blue Shield was not at all cooperative with MDVIP, but that is now resolved when I switched to GEHA.
