Specialties

Dr. Hunter R Smith has the following 2 specialties

  • Pulmonary Disease

    A pulmonologist is a physician who specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of conditions related to the lungs and respiratory tract.
    These specialists are similar to critical care specialists in that their patients often require mechanical ventilation to assist their breathing.
    Pulmonologists diagnose and treat patients with conditions such as asthma, cystic fibrosis, asbestosis, pulmonary fibrosis, lung cancer, COPD, and emphysema. Exposure and inhalation of certain toxic substances may also warrant the services of a pulmonologist.
    Some of the tools and tests pulmonologists use to diagnose a patient are a stethoscope in order to listen for abnormal breathing sounds, chest X-rays, CT scans, blood tests, bronchoscopy, and polysomnography.

  • 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.

A good doc, not great bedside manner.

I have been seeing Dr. Smith for years. He seems knowledgeable about my lung problems. However, he isn't considerate or sensitive in his communication with me ever, and has given me very bad news in a kind of flippant way. I don't like him, but I trust him as a doc.

Great Doc

Been going to Dr. Smith for 10+ yrs. He's knowledgeable and caring. He always spends the time needed to address all my issues. I live in Littleton and drive to Boulder t o see him, and, it's well worth it.
