I developed a love of medicine as a paramedic and respiratory therapist, and medical school gave me the knowledge and skills to better care for those around me. Being able to help people with different problems continues to be one of the greatest joys of being a family doctor. Besides helping patients with their health problems, I have learned valuable lessons and insights from my patients.

    My only concern is probably my fault, but I wish I would be told what medication and its possible side effects by the doctor before the prescription was entered. I read the information that is included when the pharmacy fills the prescription. Sometimes I have questions about why this drug was prescribed rather than another. And I should have been able to discuss this with the doctor BEFOREHAND and agree to take the medication. I have in two prior cases been prescribed medication — costly medication I might add - that I decided not to use based on extremely strong contradictions in the literature that came with the medication at the pharmacy. But this was not a failing on Dr. Smith’s visit today. In the future I will make this clear before any medication that I am not already familiar with is prescribed.
