- 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.

This is my 1st review I've written for any doctor. I started seeing Dr. Smart about four years ago. I had at the time a terrible cough and nobody could figure out why. This guy is a very good listener and we hit it off. He tried several things with me, gave me samples of meds so it wouldn't be costly to me and we eventually found the right medicine for my problem. I was having 4-5 cases of bronchitis a year and this past winter I had one. My cough is gone, very seldom use my emergency inhaler and am so grateful to have found this doctor. If I could he'd be my family doctor. My trip to see him is 120 miles round trip and the staff is very good about getting me in when I need to see him. I go early and I get in right away and my visits are quick now. Anybody that needs to see a good doctor should see Dr. Smart. Anybody that has lung issues knows that it may take time to find the problem and solution, so be patient, this guy is great. After 4 1/2 years he's more than a doctor to me, a friend is appropriate.
Dr. Smart is the first physician that has ever really seemed to LISTEN to me...all my symptoms, complaints, and frustrations. He spent more time with me and EXPLAINING his opinions and theories than any other Dr. I've seen, and trust me, I've seen many!! For anyone with chronic problems of "unknown origin", I would so highly recommend him.
