    Hello, I’m Dr. Jared Smith and I’m a general surgeon at Independence Surgical Clinic.

    I like coming to work and seeing a patient that has a big problem that needs to be taken care of and see them get better and getting off to enjoying life again. Many times they don’t really know what’s going to happen, how they’re going to do and I like to explain those things to them and to educate the patients so that it really takes away fear and also helps them know what’s going to happen next.

    I always tell the patient what my best recommendation is and what I would do if I were him or her. But I think it’s really important that the patient get to decide what we do.

    I think that it’s important to try to become better every day - especially for physicians and especially for surgeons. So to do that I learn from continuing education opportunities that are out there with regard to conferences and reading literature that comes by. And I also learn from my senior partner and those around me.
