Years in Practice: 25 years
Practices In: Glen Ellyn, Lombard, Naperville
Patients Seen: All Ages

I have more than two decades of expe­ri­ence treat­ing patients of every imag­in­able back­ground, with dig­ni­ty, respect, dili­gence, and kind­ness. I have the joy of hav­ing six delight­ful kids, who proud­ly include Asian, African-Amer­i­can, and Cau­casian ances­try, mem­ber­ship in the LBGTQIA+ com­mu­ni­ty, and in the spe­cial-needs com­mu­ni­ty. I am an enthu­si­as­tic, hum­ble learn­er about these com­mu­ni­ties and others.

One of the joys of my spe­cial­ty is that we treat patients, from infants to seniors, for a con­tin­u­al­ly chal­leng­ing vari­ety of con­di­tions. I am an Iron­man triath­lete and I espe­cial­ly enjoy treat­ing ath­letes who are deal­ing with exer­cise-relat­ed res­pi­ra­to­ry and aller­gic conditions.

"Dr. Smart was great about explaining everything to me. He was patient and used terms that made sense to me (I came in knowing absolutely nothing about food allergies or the entire food allergy testing process). It is clear he is very intelligent, but he is not arrogant about it. He put me at ease and made me feel like he truly wanted to help me find a solution to my issues. I would highly recommend him to anyone."

"Dr. Smart is so amazing! His positivity and great attitude were truly a breath of fresh air. He is incredibly attentive, tells you what's going to happen before it happens, and then pauses to make sure you understand and can ask any questions you have. I'm bummed our follow up isn't for another year (because the experience was so good), but I am grateful for such a calm experience diagnosing my 10-month-old with a peanut allergy. Would recommend to anyone looking for an allergist!"
