Matthew B. Smith, MD, FACG

Philosophy of Care

Practicing medicine and having patients trust me to the extent that they are able to share their personal problems is a privilege. I believe it is important to listen to the concerns of my patients and to educate them so that together we can decide on a plan to treat their symptoms or disease.
