Specialties

Dr. David B Smith has the following 3 specialties

  • Medical Oncology

    Think of an oncologist as your main physician for cancer care. After being diagnosed, you’ll meet regularly with an oncologist to explore and manage your treatment options, as well as monitor your condition throughout the process. Medical oncologists are extremely knowledgeable in various types of cancer treatment and can recommend the right method for the type and stage of cancer you’re facing.
    They may also refer you to additional specialists throughout your care, but they will always be your home base for questions and support. It’s also worth mentioning that medical oncologists deal mostly with solid tumors while hematologists specialize in cancers that involve blood disorders, such as leukemia.

  • Hematology

    A hematology specialist is an expert in disorders of the blood, the blood forming organs and bone marrow. These doctors diagnose, treat and work to prevent diseases that affect the production of blood and its components, as well as the ability of the blood to perform its many functions, such as coagulation and carrying oxygen to the lungs and tissue.
    Hematologists diagnose and treat blood disorders, such as anemia, hemophilia, leukemia, sickle cell anemia, deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism.
    Depending on the condition, hematology specialists may treat a patient with a blood transfusion, stem cell transplantation, bone marrow transplant, radiotherapy, anticoagulation therapy or medication.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Words cannot express enough thanks to Dr. Smith for the help, guidance and compassion that he has shown us throughout my mother's health issues. Even after finding that my mother has no blood disorders, Dr. Smith continued to see my mother as a patient when all others basically gave up trying to figure out her health problem and were just managing her symptoms. He continues to guide us and advocate to other doctors for us to try to find a solution for mom's health issue. Dr. Smith is not only a brilliant doctor, he is kind, caring and compassionate....and has a wonderful sense of humor. All these things make for the best kind of doctor...and that is Dr. Smith.

Son of former patient

Dr. David Smith is the best. He was my dad’s doctor for 8 plus years. My dad had CLL. I can't say enough about Dr. Smith. After my dad’s diagnosis, he allowed us to have our dad for an additional 8 plus years. Did everything he could. Went above and beyond patient/family Doctor relationship. He is truly an amazing Doctor and an amazing person. Thank you Doctor Smith.
