More about Marc Smith, MD
Dr. Marc Smith’s career journey began in the financial industry in New York City, where he worked on Wall Street for three years after graduating college. After realizing that medicine was his true passion, he went back to school and began working towards the goal of becoming a physician. He fell in love with Psychiatry during medical school, where he developed a fascination for the neurobiology of the brain and an appreciation for the opportunity that the field provides to get to know patients on a deep, personal level. He currently practices general psychiatry and has extensive experience working with mood disorders (including depression and bipolar disorder), anxiety disorders, trauma-related disorders (including PTSD), and psychotic disorders (including schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder).
Dr. Smith has a special interest in alternative treatments for depression, including transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) therapy and esketamine nasal spray. He is excited about the effectiveness of these treatments for those whose symptoms have not been alleviated through medication alone. He believes that these two techniques have the potential to revolutionize the treatment of depression and save lives.
As a psychiatrist, Dr. Marc Smith views the doctor-patient relationship as a true partnership. He was drawn to Mindful Health Solutions because of our evidence-based practices and our focus on incorporating the newest and most effective treatments in the field. It is also extremely important for him to work in a patient-first environment. His goal is to understand the unique needs of each patient and to develop an individualized, collaborative treatment plan designed to meet those needs.
