My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

Doctor derives from the Latin word for teacher. My most important role as a doctor is to teach my patients to understand as much as possible about their illness and the importance of their wellness. I empower each of my patients to be my partner so we can work together to make a positive difference in their health and well-being.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Dr. Dean Smith for 8 years. During these eight years I have witnessed his concern and interest for his patients. First and foremost, he listens to patients. He NEVER makes, you feel he in a hurry to get you in and out as fast as possible. He LISTENS! He reflects compassion in how you are feeling and what has been happening prior to your visit with him… See more

I love it that Dr. Dean Smith is always available for me, all I have to do is txt or call him. He has kept me from going to urgent care by calling in prescriptions that cure my illness. He is very caring and responds to my needs quickly.

from Levon in SC February 16, 2024 for Dean A. Smith, MD

After months of poor health, my husband did not have the strength to even to get out of bed.

On one occasion specifically, I had what I thought was a cold/sinus infection. On the morning of the fourth day after taking a warm shower, I developed significant breathing issues. I called Dr. Smith's office at 8:30 a.m. explained to his nurse (Wendy) at the time what was going on. She scheduled a 10:00 a.m. appointment the same morning. Upon arrival I was met at the office door… See more

from charles in SC February 12, 2024 for Dean A. Smith, MD

Dr Dean Smith is always available and listens to all of our concerns. He has a vast knowledge and is able to determine what is wrong and get us to the right specialist or treat the problem himself. My wife has been diagnosed with MCI and Dr. Smith referred us to a neurologist at MUSC. As a result of that my wife is about to start a course of treatment that shows great promise in slowing down… See more

Doctor Dean Smith is my primary care Doctor and is a wonderful Doctor and a highly trusted person. When I was first diagnosed with cancer he recommended a Pulmonnologist who order a Cat scan.

Cancer found and that was wonderful news… See more

from Joel in SC February 11, 2024 for Dean A. Smith, MD

My mom moved here to the beach and suddenly got the flu--- which resulted in several hospital visits. It took a while to get off the waitlist to
become a patient of Dr. Dean Smith, but when she did, he was a wealth of knowledge and kindness. We were able to contact him or see him on a moment's notice. She was able to go off all the medications that were causing her to have issues.… See more
