What is Family Medicine?

Family Practice is a relatively “new” specialty that is different than “General Practice.” Doctors who specialize in Family Medicine put an emphasis on preventative care and taking care of the “whole person.” They also complete a Family Medicine Residency and can be Board Certified in Family Medicine. Dr. Smith is licensed by the State Board of Medical Examiners for the State of Louisiana. She is Board Certified by the American Board of Family Medicine, and re-certifies on a regular basis.
