About Dr. Smith

Philosophy of care

My philosophy of care is to work closely with my patients and use informed decision-making to provide the right care for the right person. It is important to understand each person when making decisions to avoid a cookie cutter approach to care.

Why I entered medicine

I chose to enter medicine because it offered me a way to apply my interest in biology in a meaningful way. It is personally rewarding to see the impact you can have on someone's life while simultaneously tackling the intellectual challenges of medicine.

Community involvement

I am actively involved in medical education on multiple levels. My strongest interest is in providing graduate medical education to resident physicians. I also work closely with the medical students enrolled in the Lehigh Valley Health Network-University of South Florida curriculum. Several of my educational interests also involve providing medical care to underserved populations.

Personal interests

I am very involved with my children and their interests.

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.
