"During my internal-medicine rotation, I discovered I could learn so much from the heart just by listening. That's what truly peaked my interest. I also had a cardiologist who was a very good teacher, who really challenged me." Do you have a favorite tool or piece of equipment? "I use an electronic stethoscope. I've been using it for the last three years or so. It amplifes the sound, making it easier to hear when conditions aren't conducive." As a child, what did you want to be when you grew up? "I just wanted to do a good job and do something important. I was a good student and I loved science. My mom was a chemist at a distillery. I was a biology major (in college), and I just remember thinking: What do I do with this? I tried research but felt isolated; I knew being in a lab was not the right choice for me. I decided to take the MCAT (Medical College Admission Test), and I did very well on it. I decided to take my chances on medical school." Are there any misconceptions or myths that your patients believe? "I hate to admit it, but probably the most common misconception is that patients think I remember everyone. And I don't. I'm not good with faces, and I feel bad when a patient recognizes me outside the offce. I also think patients forget that I do more than practice medicine. I'm a mom and a wife and I have many of the same stresses they do." Dr. Janet Smith
