Dr. Mark W Smith has the following 2 specialties
- 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.
Anesthesiologists are physicians who are trained to administer anesthetics, which are medicines used to block nerve sensation. Anesthesia can be either local to one specific part of a body, like a tooth, or regional to block feeling to a larger portion of the body, such as during an epidural for child birth. It can also be more general to block sensation to the entire body, resulting in unconsciousness.
Anesthesiologists assist in surgery by determining how much anesthesia is necessary and by monitoring the patient's level of responsiveness and vital signs throughout the procedure. The anesthesia specialist will also bring the patient out of anesthesia and then continue to monitor his or her vital signs post-operation.
Besides assisting in surgeries, anesthesiologists may also treat patients suffering from chronic pain.

Gold Bond was the clear winner for me. This restoring lotion and its brother, the 'healing' lotion worked the first time and gave me not only the relief I so desperately needed but actually healed and softened my skin in just a few days. I can't say I have a favorite of the two because they both absorb quickly, have the most subtle scent (not feminine or masculine or medicinal - the scent is almost not even there), they don't leave a greasy/sticky residue, and they both provide instant relief. Having to be so careful about touching things with my immune system so compromised I am constantly washing my hands or using those hand sanitizers that are everywhere, which pretty much feel like pouring gasoline on an open cut, so my hands are a wreck. The restoring lotion seems to be a teense thinner and smoother during application while the healing is a bit thicker but both go on smoothly and it seems to me that I can actually feel it penetrating the skin. I don't seem to have to keep reapplying it throughout the day and I find it also works amazingly well on my feet and heels. I will say it is easier to apply the restoring lotion as a body lotion, say, after showering because it spreads faster, but I have used both following a shower and they work very well.
Itâs all been said in the other five star reviews. Dr. Smith and his staff are all I could have hoped for in a medical practitioner. He has been my primary care physician for several years now and has always provided the absolute best care, and I believe, best advice and treatment during every visit and for every issue. If you are looking for a doctor whose medical knowledge is encyclopedic, treats the whole person, and takes the time to be caring even while maintaing a very efficient office, then Dr. Smith is someone you should consider visiting.
The anesthesiologist came to visit before my surgery and explained what would happen and why and the procedure went very well. Able to leave within a few hours.
