For the first 33 years of my life I went from doctor to doctor for a variety of ailments from anxiety, depression, sickness and the generalities of the fragile human body. These visits always felt transactional rather than a partnership of health management. As in all professions, competency and mastery vary greatly. The single best thing that I ever did, was start seeing Dr Richard Smith. There a a variety of cogent reasons as to why a consistent GP is beneficial, something I only truly understood after I walked into his practice. Normally, the process begins, you point to what hurts, a few tests are run as a matter of course and shortly thereafter a script is dispensed and you are on your way, none the wiser of not only your actual ailment but once again missing the opportunity to learn even the most basic of biological principles. Dr Smith does not work this way. Unlike so many others he is acutely in tune with his patients concerns, he is not a dispensary, but a healer. Both of body and mind. He takes the time to get to know you, to listen and to engage you in a way that brings clarity. I dare say I only walk away a little wiser. I cannot count the number of times I have attended his practice only to be amazed at the keen insights he has offered into my physical and mental health. His humour, eccentric outlook and humility truly are a gift. I am never rushed, never dismissed or made to feel like a subject to be examined. I have never looked forward to seeing the doctor. Now I can't wait for the next flu shot. In all seriousness however, Dr Smith is a credit to his profession, if you want a partner to work with you about your health, he is your man. Always available, makes time even during busy hours and just ask the man about jazz. Thanks Doc, you've really helped me. I truly appreciate it.
