Dr. Mark 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.
- 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.

Honestl, everything about Dr. Smith and his staff is as perfect as a dr. visit can be.Dr. Smith always has a smile and or a joke for you when you are feeling down.I remember once i told a joke and while laughing he bumped his head on a cabinet and it hurt i know , but he even laughed at himself for letting it happened .
Dr Mark Smith is an excellent physician. I have known him over 20 years and have seen his work with other patients in a hospital setting. Dr Smith truly cares about his patients and not just their medical condition, but also anything occurring in their personal life. He is a top notch physician. I can't say I've ever had to wait in his office. One can call and most times if you're an established patient and having an acute issue can obtain an appointment within hours. Dr Smith will not stop until he finds an answer to your medical condition. Even when I had an issue not his specialty he did everything he could to assist. Dr Smith has been the Chief of Staff at our local hospitals which adds additional duties to his already packed schedule, but he's been able to handle both doing an excellent job. His office staff is very nice and also always concerned about your welfare. Even Dr Smith's colleagues although having different personalities also will go above and beyond to make sure you are taking care of in Dr Smith's absence. Dr Smith is always up to date on the newest treatments. He takes his time and listens to the patient sometimes acting as if you are the only person he's seeing that day. I can't recommend him enough and I wish he could have a rating of 10 stars because he's that good.
