Dr. Kerri A 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.
- Critical Care Medicine
Also sometimes referred to as intensivists, critical care specialists are physicians with specialized training in the diagnosis and management of life-threatening conditions. Some of these conditions affect vital organs like the heart and lungs, those that make breathing difficult or impossible, and those that affect entire organ systems, like the renal system.
Critical care specialists are typically found in a hospital's intensive care unit where they monitor patients with life-threatening conditions and make determinations as to the best course of treatment.

I was misdiagnosed as hiving pulmonary arterial hypertension and started on the medications. I felt so sick on these medications and I was so frightened, I went for a second opinion. She's so warm and so smart, that immediately I knew she would be my new doctor, not just a second opinion. To my joy, she immediately recognized that I had been misdiagnosed and stopped the medications the first day. She made some other changes and six weeks later I feel the best I have in a very long time. I'm so glad I went to see her and my heart goes out to those who do have pulmonary hypertension. She should be your doctor. I'm sure she'll take care of you with the same warmth, compassion, and sharp intelligence that she too care of me with.
