Dr. Heath Smith was born and raised in Paradise, Texas of Wise County. Dr. Smith’s ambition to become a surgeon was validated when he participated in his first surgical case at 17 years of age. Upon graduation from high school, he attended Texas A&M University at College Station where he completed his undergraduate degree and medical school. Dr. Smith earned his Doctor of Medicine in 2009 and completed his residency at Virginia Tech/ Carilion Clinic in Roanoke, Virginia.
Dr. Smith has a wide range of experience in the following surgical procedures: bariatric, colonoscopy, colorectal, hernia, breast, appendix, gallbladder, surgical oncology and thyroid.
He and his staff are committed to compassionate patient care and understand the challenges of taking time off work to attend doctor’s appointments. This is what led him to offer Saturday consultations.
“My patients deserve a physician and surgeon that will treat them with compassion and understanding. A physician that will listen to them and treat them with respect and dignity,” says Dr. Smith.
