Specialties

Dr. Robert K Smitherman 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.

  • Emergency Medicine

    An emergency physician is a doctor who is an expert in handling conditions of an urgent and extremely dangerous nature. These specialists work in the emergency room (ER) departments of hospitals where they oversee cases involving cardiac distress, trauma, fractures, lacerations and other acute conditions.
    Emergency physicians are specially trained to make urgent life-saving decisions to treat patients during an emergency medical crisis. These doctors diagnose and stabilize patients before they are either well enough to be discharged, or transferred to the appropriate department for long-term care.

Five Stars

Dr. Smitherman is a shining example of what a doctor should be. He actually spends time talking to you not only about the issue at hand but also other areas to focus on to improve your overall health. He actually called me with my lab results and asked me if there were any other questions I had for him. Dr. Smitherman is a real class act, honest, caring and just overall exceptional at what he does.

One Star

I was a patient of Dr. Smitherman for several years before scheduling my annual physical which was just as routine as in years past. However this year I was overcharged for the visit. I have a high deductible insurance which allows me one annual physical but I must pay for any subsequent office appointments. During my physical the doctor asked me questions about my health history. Because I answered yes to certain past health issues he coded the visit as both a physical and an office visit which cost me an additional $105 even though I had not inquired nor was I treated for the past health issues. When I inquired about the charges to the staff I was told there was a sign posted on the wall stating any additional medial issues are chargeable. Perhaps the doctor should clarify his intent before asking probing questions so patience will know this may lead to additional charges.
