        After graduating from Logan College of Chiropractic (Logan University) in 1984 where he completed his Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Smith returned to Baton Rouge.  He continued his chiropractic education in family practice through Texas Chiropractic College and successfully completed the course requirements and examinations to become Board Certified though the American Chiropractic Council on Family Practice as a Chiropractic Internist in 1991.  This certification is designated as a Diplomat of the American Board of Chiropractic Internist and abbreviated as DABCI, which is written after the designation DC.

          He is a published author and previously helped to develop the current guidelines regarding chiropractic care used by Medicaid for the Louisiana State Department of Health and Hospitals.  He has been an instructor and speaker for many different organizations, both professional and public groups, the Chiropractic Association of Louisiana and is currently teaching a class for the LSU OLLI Program.

          Over the past 25 years, Dr. Smith has treated many patients with a wide range of complaints from musculoskeletal, headaches, back pain, aches and pains to problems caused by  accidents and poor diet choices.  He has counseled his patients on lifestyle, diet and nutrition, activities of daily living and proper use of natural therapies which allows people to be empowered and take responsibility for their own health.  He also attends continuing education programs and workshops several times a year to learn the most up-to-date treatment developments and options.

          The practice specializes in treating a variety of conditions from internal disorders to chronic back pain and headaches, nutritional deficiencies to well family care. Dr. Smith can also provide information about increasing the quality of your life by making simple lifestyle changes. 

My Health Care Philosophy:

·       I respect the body’s inherent ability to heal, and to work to facilitate the natural healing process.

·       I believe that natural therapies generally provide the safest and most cost effective way to prevent disease. Natural therapies should be the foundation for preventing illness and optimizing health.

·       I will endeavor to find natural remedies and recommend them whenever possible, and to get to the root of the problem instead of just treating the symptoms.

·       I limit the use of procedures and modern diagnostic testing techniques whenever possible, but use them when necessary.   

·       I believe in educating my patients on diet, lifestyle, and proper use of natural therapies which allows people to be empowered over their own health.

·       I believe that every person is unique in the way their body functions.  I will listen carefully to you, my patient.

 

 



My goal is to provide you with a natural advance to better health by science-based nutrition and chiropractic.

Prevention-It's how to live well.

 Robert W. Smith, DC, DABCI
