When you need primary care for your family, providers at Meritas Health Smithville can help. Our providers offer high-quality, compassionate care to help prevent illnesses and manage short- and long-term health conditions.
Family medicine doctors have the ability to treat every member of your family, regardless of their age. If you choose a family medicine physician as your primary care doctor, it can eliminate the need to have a separate pediatrician for your child.
Meritas Health Smithville also offers early-morning appointments, and our office is conveniently located in Smithville, just northeast of Highways 169 and 92.

To make the most of your appointment with a family doctor, cardiologist, or ENT doctor:
- Arrive 30 minutes before your first visit and 15 minutes before all subsequent appointments so we can collect, verify or update your information.
- Bring your insurance card and money for copays or co-insurance. (See what insurance providers we accept.)
- Bring a current, complete list of your medications.
To save time during your visit to our family practice office, print and fill out any necessary patient forms at home and bring them to your appointment.
Patient History Forms
Tell your doctor during your appointment if you’ll need prescription refills before your next visit. To request a refill between appointments, call your pharmacy or mail-order service. Submit your refill request several days before you run out of medication; we respond to refill requests only during our business hours.

If you need urgent medical care after business hours, call 816-741-5542 to reach the on-call doctor. Medication refills will not be called into the pharmacy after hours or on weekends.
