Dr. James R Smith has the following 2 specialties
- Hospice and Palliative Medicine
Hospice care & Palliative medicine specialists focus their practice on pain management, symptom relief and qualify-of-life treatments to relieve the suffering of terminally ill patients. These doctors have specialized expertise in the treatment of patients with serious illnesses, advanced diseases and conditions resulting from catastrophic injury. Though often they work within hospice settings, they prevent and alleviate suffering appropriate at any age and stage of disease and can work alongside practitioners providing curative treatments.
Hospice care & Palliative medicine focuses on depression, pain, fatigue, constipation, nausea, shortness of breath, loss of appetite and difficulty sleeping, among other conditions. They also alleviate psychosocial distress and other stressors that accompany terminal illnesses. They are skilled in guiding families through legal and ethical decision-making in end-of-life care and can address spiritual issues at these times. By coordinating care across settings by improving communication among providers, they improve access to information for families so that they understand the patient's condition and treatment options.
A pediatrician is a doctor who specializes in the regular care of children, as well as the diagnosis and treatment of illness in children. Young patients are often more complicated to treat because they are still growing and developing.
While pediatricians may sub-specialize in specific therapy areas like oncology, surgery, ophthalmology, and anesthesiology, in general, pediatricians provide services like vaccinations, health exams, and treatment of common ailments and injuries. In addition, pediatricians are trained to handle the complex emotional and behavioral issues faced by children, especially during puberty.
Pediatricians normally see their patients from birth until the age of 18, although some may agree to treat patients into their early 20s, if requested.

He will sit down and listen to every one of my concerns about my daughter. He's very friendly, and my daughter loves him. The nurses, assistants, and receptionist are all very friendly. I love that this clinic is a teaching clinic, my daughter gets to see two doctors at once, and it helps her to get used to having to see different people in that setting. I really do like this doctor. :)
Sadly Dr. Smith has just lost 2 patients due to office policy's. His office ONLY does well child exams in the morning, and this just does not always work out for us when children are in school ect. There are NO exceptions to this rule. So, beware if a morning well child exam does not work for your family, I would consider another office. So sad about this, as he is a GREAT doctor and my kids do like him. Just cant get in to see him :( Sadly, I would not recommend this offce, search elsewhere.
Dr. Smith began w/just one of my children and is now seeing three of them. From the first visit, I was so impressed at how sincerely he talked to the children, and not at them (or me). He genuinely seems to care about not just their physical but mental health as well. When complications have come up, I have been able to leave him a message and he has faithfully gotten back to me either personally or through a nurse on the same day. He patiently considers the fears, insecurities, and comfort level of the kids. Honestly, I have never been more impressed with a pediatrician. I wish he saw adults too!
