Joseph G. Smith, ARNP
I practice "patient centered care". Meaning, I will give my professional opinion but each and every decision is the patient's choice and I will respect that choice.
Why The Doctors Clinic:
As a student Nurse Practitioner I had the opportunity to learn at TDC and enjoyed the atmosphere that the clinic provided. I wanted to be a part of this team as I saw the excellent treatment that was provided.
Joined The Doctors Clinic:
Family Health, Men's Health, Women's Health and Well Child Visits. More than anything I enjoy educating patients on important health topics including diet and nutrition, weight loss, exercise, and disease prevention.

I enjoy spending time with my wife and our cat. I am an avid backpacker and enjoy the occasional mountaineering trip. I started learning Brazilian jiu-jitsu in 2017 and I am enjoying my time as a white belt.
