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.

Education:
Residency: Eglin Air Force Base Family Medicine

Patient Rating

Legacy wants every patient to have great care, every time. To help measure and improve patient satisfaction, we send surveys to randomly selected patients after their appointments. We use this feedback from the surveys to improve and enhance the care we offer. It works like this: Real patients give us feedback through Press Ganey, a patient satisfaction survey company. They verify and confirm the results. National Research Corporation, an independent company, provides the technology to show the ratings and comments on our website

the visit was great. gettin in was the hard part. had to schedule 2 months out. had an injury and begged for a physical therapy referral so I wouldn't have to wait so long. they wouldn't budge because i was a new patient. later I found out i could have gone to PT without a referral. on appointment day, i was scheduled at 7:40 am and my letter said to come 30 minutes early. imagine my dismay when I arrived at 7:10 and was told by a recording that they open at 8. thankfully, someone let me in at 7:30. still- frustrating and disrespectful of my time.

When I called to make the appointment I told them I needed longer than a 45 min. apptmnt. They told me no. Therefore NOT ALL of my concerns were met. I loved Dr. Smith I think she is a good fit for me. She just needed more time. I am used to getting shoved in the corner and forgotten about by other providers. Dr. Smith went above and beyond what I expected.

Great doctor. Smart and confident. knows her stuff and goes down a list of my and her concerns one by one. She's got good ideas and doesn't recommend things that will be too hard or tiring. Projects caring and reliability. It's surprising because she's so young, but I feel like she's really dependable.

Dr. Smith really listens to the things I deal with on a daily visit. If she thinks something is good for me, even against my thoughts, I take her advice and have told her why I defer to her advice. She is aware that listening to me is an important part of my care, and she has given me good advice when I8 ask questions. I have only had 2 visits with Dr. Smith, as my previous doctor left Legacy Health, but I'm convinced I will stay with Dr. Smith.

This appointment was to establish care. Dr. Smith spent sufficient time with me and we had a very good chat about my health and my needs. I feel that she listened and responded with a plan that we have put in place already. I was very pleased with the overall office/medical experience for this appointment.

Elizabeth was wonderful and very easy to talk to during my visit. I recently transferred medical from out of State and this was my first appointment. I'm really looking forward to her being my primary doctor. She is the perfect example of professionalism and friendly manner, that is what you look for in a doctor. I know I am in good hands! 100% Satisfied. I highly recommend her to a family member or friend.

Dr Smith is a wonderful doctor!! she worked me in because I was having low blood pressure readings and a lot of dizziness! She took extra time to explain changes she made in my B P meds! I was really relieved after my appointment. My BP has stabilized and I really appreciate having her as my doctor!!
