“You can accomplish so much more when you work as part of a team," says primary care physician Dr. Ryan Smith. "In our case, that means working with patients, their families, the extended health care team, and athletic teams." Dr. Smith sees many athletes for minor injuries and illnesses in the office. Originally from the Lehigh Valley, he takes great pride in delivering quality care to the community where he was raised and now lives.
“East Stroudsburg is like “hometown America,” says Smith. “Because EBurg has grown so much, there aren’t many locals left who practice medicine and have returned. Many residents feel like their quality of care isn’t what it used to be, and that they're being treated like just another patient. My practice is very different. The area’s healthcare systems are very clinically fragmented. I coordinate my patient's care and make it easy for them. I do what’s right and send them to the right provider, even if it’s outside of CH.”
“I take a very personalized approach to chronic disease management. Many of the area’s patients need the kind of support that is individualized to their unique needs.
“I believe strongly in a team approach. This applies to how my team at Coordinated Health serve patients in addition to athletes. Our team gets you feeling better and back to your routine faster. It’s that simple.”
