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.

Thank you Dr. Smith for encouraging me to get that colonoscopy I've been avoiding. I'm glad I did it and you were right, it wasn't so bad :)

Just the other day I had food poisoning and I used the MDVIP website to contact Dr. Smith. Within an hour he called me to check in on me even though he was out of town. He was able to call in the medicine I needed and I was feeling much better by the end of the day. Just knowing he was a text, phone call or email away was very comforting especially when I was feeling so sick.
