    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Office unaware their physician was no longer in network

By the time I came for my appt. and blood tests were ordered, they called my insurance company and found out Dr. Smith was no longer in their network. I had blood tests, and no doctor. I have to take these tests to a new doctor and may have to pay out of pocket for a second set of tests.

Best Doctor in the World

I had gone to several doctors, have had several MRI's, Scans, XRays been to the fanciest doctors in La Quinta, Palm Springs, several pain management clinics to no avail. On my 1st visit to Dr. Smith's office and one look once I took off my shirt he said, oh my you have several shoulder problems. He sent me right away to XRAY which revealed bone spurs which in turn after ultrasound revealed torn ligaments as well. I have gone through one lathrascopic surgery and have been in post op for one month. All the other doctors were treating me for migrains which were supposedly causing my shoulder, neck and extreme headaches. The other doctors were looking at the cart and not the horse.

A+ Doc

Dr. Smith is an exceptional Doctor. He takes great pride and concern for his patients, by listening to every need, every complaint, every ache and pain...no matter what! Dr. Smith brings back the old days of medicane with unique treatment plans, and old school knowledge. House calls and real medical compassion, are no longer a thing of the past.The only correction that should be stated here, is that he has only ONE office, located at 1360 W. 6th Street, San Pedro CA, and the correct phone number is: (310) 514-0404. Any other information is incorrect and outdated.
