Specialties

Dr. Jerrold Smith has the following 1 specialty

  • Pediatrics

    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.

Rude

He thinks parents know nothing about their child. And will scold you if you act like you do. Horrible bedside manner.

Best Doctor Ever

I can honestly say I have known Dr. Smith throughout his entire career. He was the 2nd person to ever hold me & I am 38. My sister & I both were patients of his. When I gave birth to my oldest 17yrs ago, he was the 1st & only pediatrics physician I wanted my children to see. We have driven from Noblesville to see him. I know he is an amazing doc! He is honest & will tell you exactly what is going on in the development of your child. His diagnoses isn't going to always be what you want to hear, but it's the truth & right on target. He loves children & really cares about their development. Yes, his jokes are odd & not too funny & my oldest doesn't get the jokes most of the time, but my youngest explains it & then we all laugh. We love Dr. Jerrold Smith!

He does not think that a parent knows anything about their child that they live with every day and he will tell you he knows more than you.

Great Dr!

We love Dr. Smith! I am a new mother, my son is now 13 months old but we have seen Dr. Smith since he was born. In the hospital I was a little put off because my son was only a day old and he just grabbed him up and was turning him this way and that way checking everything out. So of course my son was crying and I was like he's way too rough, I'm not going to him! However, the second time he came in he was very knowledgable and caring, and my son was fine, Dr. Smith does this all the time! So we've been seeing him ever since and he always answers any questions I have and knows how to deal with anything. Tells me exactly what is going on and doesn't try to sugar-coat things, which I greatly appreciate! Since he has been a pediatrician for so long he knows ALOT and he always has answers and advice. My son hasn't had any type of serious problems (thank god) but I'm confident that if we should ever need Dr. Smith for anything more than a checkup he would be the right man to see! We also LOVE his nurse, Kelly! She's great with kids and does shots quickly, and she also has answers and advice for any questions we've had. I would recommend Dr. Smith to anyone!
