Where I see patients

About Me:

I grew up in Silverton, OR and after serving in the Air Force I have the unique honor to return home and serve this community. Medicine is a calling, my calling, and it is amazing how scientific advancements like vaccines, immunotherapy, bedside ultrasound and countless more have made it possible to improve lives. I look forward as science continues to discover how the mind-body connection plays an integral role in health and wellbeing. I believe that health can best thrive in a partnership between physician and patient when each person is held accountable. Where physicians are expected to use best evidenced based medicine to achieve outcomes that matter to the patient and where patients are expected to take control of their own health. Most of my free time is spent learning what it means to be an amateur homesteader on my 36-acre farm with my husband and two boys. But there is always time for yoga.

  Sep 5, 2023
She listen to me. And set up test to find answers to what's wrong with me. Instead of just giving me pills.

  Aug 23, 2023
Your office runs very efficiently, it's clean and welcoming. We did talk about a couple of my prescriptions at my visit I just forgot to click the right button. I made my appointment online so I never talked to the office.

  Aug 23, 2023
It's always a good experience.

  Aug 22, 2023
Dr. Smith turned her attention away from me while I was in mid sentence, explaining my problem, to answer a knock on the door from the MA and went on to discuss another patients case, with the MA, with the door open it made me feel like she was dismissive of my health concerns. My previous doctor would have at least let me finish my sentence, and excused themselves to speak privately outside the exam room, with the door closed, if they were urgently needed. Dr Smith had a brisk manner the rest of the visit. She also sent the prescription I needed immediately to the wrong pharmacy, my mail order pharmacy, and not my pick up pharmacy, which caused additional delay in my treatment.

  Aug 21, 2023
Very good

Dr. Smith is very careful to fully think through the best way to proceed.

Dr. Smith and her assistant are the are the best medical team that I have ever had. There is so much care and they listen to what I have to say. The assistant is the only one that has ever been able to draw my blood in the first try and never misses. I am terribly scared of needles and she keeps me calm and treats me with kindness.

  Mar 17, 2023
Jessica is always great & so is Dr. Smith. They remember me, care, & are always helping find solutions & considering different avenues to address my problems.

I like how my dr takes the time to explain things to me

  Mar 10, 2023
Very unique opportunity to address a mental/social conflict from last year in which the doctor herself was uniquely aware. Her perspective brought greater clarity and understanding to my internal struggle of the last several months. Who could have planned that but God Himself?.

  Mar 7, 2023
Great doctor. Always concerned for my wellbeing.

  Feb 15, 2023
There's one receptionist in particular that was extremely rude and made me feel like my health and concerns did not matter to her whatsoever.

  Feb 14, 2023
Dr. Smith thoroughly checked my injury, gave a Steroid/lidocaine Injection, recommended an Xray and she EXPLAINED each procedure and told me why and any side effects that may accompany.

Im very fortune to have a great provider.

  Jan 16, 2023
Dr. Smith and her staff are always professional, straight forward with me and extremely communicative. My prior provider at Salem Health was highly engaged with me and I was happy to be able to find the same sort of care as well at Legacy. Though I live closer to Salem, I have always been treated well by Legacy and Dr. Smith as well as her staff that it makes it more than worthwhile for me to drive north to Mt. Angel! Extremely satisfied with the level of care I receive and will recommend her to those I know :)

Dr. Smith is young, but she presents and sounds just as knowledgeable. She explains everything in a way that makes sense to me. I actually did recommend Dr. Smith for my girlfriend. All in all, I'm very pleased with Dr. Smith!
