Dr. James Smith has the following 1 specialty

  • 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.

Not pleased

I've been waiting a long time to tell my story. Many years ago my mother went to J.Michael Smith with symptoms of drastic weight loss, back pain and inability to eat and digest food. After several visits including one of which mother was laying on the floor of his office, he told her to see a psychiatrist. I wish it really was "in her head". She died 9 months later of pancreatic cancer.

Simply the Best!

Dr Smith and I go back a long way (20+ yrs). And if he wasn't the doctor that he is, our doctor-patient relationship would not have lasted this long. He's always pleasant and smiling, and takes the time to listen to you and your point of view in those rare times that you happen to disagree with something that he says. Soft-spoken and kind, I have recommended him to my family and we all agree -- he's Simply the Best!
