A classic physician with contemporary swagger

I have been following Dr. Smith for extremely elevated cholesterol in the setting of advanced heart disease. I was losing hope but he started me on the new PCSK9 inhibitors combined with focused optimism and I have never felt better about my future. I am incredibly thankful for his service, concern, and unparalleled professionalism.

Old School Doctor

What a competent and kindly doctor! He exudes such knowledge and readily shares it with his patients. He sits with me at least 15 minutes per visit and carefully reviews all my numbers for cholesterol, sugar, etc. We develop a game plan and monitor my progress. Modern medicine may be wonderful but Dr. Smith bridges eras and is the best of both worlds. See him!
