Patrick Smith is a certified nurse practitioner who feels grateful to provide care for the people of Great Falls and the surrounding areas – after all, he was born and raised in Great Falls, too.

A natural caregiver, Patrick says, “Being there in a time of need is something I’ve always enjoyed.” Building relationships is also important to Patrick, and by getting to know his patients, he gets to understand them better as well.

“Patients are always involved in the process,” he explains. “I try to individualize care as much as I can by explaining things in different ways and figuring out how to connect with each patient.”

Before becoming a nurse practitioner, Patrick was a registered nurse with 12 years of emergency and critical care experience including ten years as a flight nurse, mostly with Benefis Mercy Flight. He was active duty with the U.S. Army for eight years and continues to serve in the Montana Army Guard. Outside of work, he enjoys getting outdoors with his family and going camping, skiing, snowboarding, and swimming.
