4.9 / 5 (Based on 332 Reviews)

Benjamin Smith, D.O., earned his undergraduate degree at the University of Kansas in exercise physiology. He later earned a master’s degree in bioethics and a doctor of osteopathic medicine degree, both from Kansas City University of Medicine and Biosciences. He completed a residency in internal medicine via the University of Kentucky at the Medical Center at Bowling Green. He is a member of the American College of Osteopathic Internists and the American Medical Association.

Dr. Smith said it is often hard to believe this is his job, he loves what he does and the relationships he builds with patients. There is much more he enjoys about being a doctor, but serving the Lawrence community and growing with his patients is definitely at the top. In his free time, Dr. Smith enjoys staying active with regular exercise, watching the Jayhawks and Kansas City sports teams, being outdoors and exploring new places around the world and locally with family and friends.

Philosophy Of Care

“My best advice for patients is to take things one day at a time. Good health may be easier to achieve than you realize. Taking the first step coming by to LMH Health and seeing your provider may be all you need, don’t be afraid to take that leap.”

Overall it is good

This was a meet and Greet visit to see if Dr. Smith would be a appropriate replacement for Dr. Goering who is retiring. I believe he will do a very good job and I was very pleased with meeting him and with his attitude and his demeanor towards me.

Dr. Smith is an excellent doctor. He genuinely cares about your health and listens to your concerns. He is easy to talk with and I never feel like he is not interested in what I have to say concerning my health. He is the very best.
