The Central Florida Regional Hospital family wishes a fond farewell to Dr. C.F.B (Brooke) Smith. He recently retired after over 50 years as an internal medicine doctor at Central Florida Regional Hospital. Dr. Smith brought both dedication and humor to his patients and profession.
Dr. Smith saw his last patients on February 18, 2010. In a few weeks, he will be moving to Catawva, Virginia with the assistance of his three sons. Dr. Smith looks forward to further developing his farm. He plans to spending his time fishing and getting advice from horticulturists and foresters on cultivating Frasier firs, walnuts, and birches.
A tireless physician, Dr. Smith saw “a mess of patients” over the years, regularly seeing 15 to 20 patients daily. Yet Dr. Smith’s best advice comes not from medical school, but from his own experience: “Follow my diet, and you can retire on a farm one day at my age.”
