About Joseph J. Smith

Philosophy of care

My philosophy is that health is more than merely the absence of disease. A physician's role is to help his/her patients achieve their fullest potential through the application of evidence-based clinical practices, individually tailored and rendered in a caring, compassionate manner.

Why I entered medicine

I've always had an interest in the human condition and all of its facets. While completing my undergraduate studies in psychology and philosophy, I also desired to gain an understanding of human biology. During this time, I became a chiropractic patient and experienced first-hand the benefits of chiropractic health care. I also began to appreciate the skill and dexterity involved in analysis and therapy. What attracted me intellectually to chiropractic was its holistic orientation and its emphasis on the nervous system in maintaining and restoring health. As I delved further into the practical applications of chiropractic practice, I recognized a direct application of one of the basic principles of biology-the structure governs function. I saw in chiropractic an opportunity to provide a service to others through a science and art that is intellectually stimulating, yet physically and artistically demanding in its application, and personally gratifying in its results.

Personal interests

I am an avid Philadelphia sports fan and closely follow the Flyers, Phillies and Eagles. I greatly enjoy listening to music of various genres. I like to hike and to camp when I can. I read, but not as much as I'd like to. I spend as much time as I can with my five grandsons, doing whatever it is we can get into together.

Ratings and Reviews

About Our Ratings and Reviews

About our Survey

Our physicians and advanced practice clinicians (CRNPs and PA-Cs) are among the nation's best. That's why we show you patient satisfaction ratings and comments so you can read about and get to know our providers through the eyes of their patients.

To ensure our ratings and comments come only from verified patients, we work with NRC Health, a third-party organization. NRC Health sends patient satisfaction surveys on LVPG's behalf following an office visit or procedure. They ask patients about their impression of the health care provider and the doctor's or advanced practice clinician's communication skills.

What is included in the star rating?

Star ratings are based on a scale of 1-5 stars, 5 being the best. The rating includes responses to these provider-related questions:

  1. Physician Communication Questions
    1. Did this provider give you enough information about your health and treatment?
    2. Did this provider give you easy to understand information about your health questions and concerns?
    3. Did this provider listen carefully to you?
    4. Did this provider seem to know your medical history?
    5. Did you trust this provider with your care?
  2. Overall Provider Rating Question
    1. Using any number from 0 to 10, where 0 is the worst provider possible and 10 is the best provider possible, what number would you use to rate this provider?

Why don't all doctors or advanced practice clinicians have a rating?

In order to have enough data to measure and compare, a health care provider must have at least 30 completed patient satisfaction surveys. Surveys are included for a period of 12 months from submission.
