Approach To Care

Dr. Smith’s approach to care is centered on the complete customer. The MD after his name invokes a sense of trust and faith in his customers that Dr. Smith takes very seriously. He provides everyone he cares for with the same care, regardless of their station in life. He also expects his staff and everyone else he works with to treat customers with the same care and respect.

Dr. Smith grew up learning the workings of his family’s farm (that he still works on today) and shadowing his grandfather, who was a country doctor. Following in his grandfather’s footsteps as well as those of his aunt, Dr. Kate Smith, he chose to enter the medical profession.

Dr. Smith is married and has three children. He is an avid reader, a history enthusiast and a great story teller. He is also a fowl hunter. Dr. Smith likes good, South Carolina barbecue and, every once in a while, a slice of pecan pie.
