Dr. Matthew J Smith has the following 1 specialty

  • Family Medicine

    A family practitioner is a doctor who specializes in caring for people of all ages, at all stages of life. Rather than focusing on the treatment of one disease or patient population, family practitioners are often the doctors that people see for their everyday ailments, like cold and flu or respiratory infections, and health screenings. When necessary, family practitioners will provide referrals for conditions that require the expertise of another specialist.
    The doctors may also provide physicals, inoculations, prenatal care, treat chronic diseases, like diabetes and asthma, and provide advice on disease prevention.

Would be better if he'd "Take Time to Listen"

We've been seeing Dr. Smith for almost 15 years. In the beginning he spent lots of time listening, answering questions, and taking our opinions/beliefs into account when prescribing treatment plans. As his practice has grown, this has changed significantly. We believe he is very knowledgeable & caring but, unless the issue is common like Strep Throat or Flu, we almost always feel he is "too educated" or "too busy" to listen. Although he is always friendly, we often leave feeling unheard and cheated of a better quality of care. We end up returning for the same issue(s) only to be told to try the same unsuccessful things over and over again until we "ask" for referrals to specialists where the issue/problem is finally addressed. This has led us to consider finding a different Family Practitioner, even though we'd rather have the Dr. Smith we used to have. His staff is awesome! They are friendly, professional, and listen attentively answering questions thoroughly. He could take lessons from his staff and interns in patient communications -- which could bring him back to "why" we chose him as our family physician to begin with.
