Matthew B. Smith, MD | Psychiatrist

Matthew B. Smith, MD excels as a general adult psychiatrist who practices individual, group, and couple psychotherapy as well as psychopharmacology and neuropsychiatry. With more than 40 years of experience in the field, he specializes in helping those with attention deficit disorders, mood and personality disorders, anxiety disorders, addiction issues, chronic pain syndromes, and brain injuries. A solo practitioner from 1985 to 2021, he also served as a psychiatrist at NYU Medical Center between 1977 and 2010. Equipped with a bachelor’s degree from Haverford College, he studied pre-med at Columbia University and subsequently earned his medical degree from New York University Grossman School of Medicine, where he gained experience as an intern, resident, and chief resident. He also served as an attending psychiatrist at Bellevue Hospital.

In addition to his primary accomplishments, he has published numerous papers for psychiatric journals and chapters for psychiatric textbooks, as well as has been involved in a wide range of research practices—of which he is extremely proud. He has also lent his expertise as a member of such prominent organizations in the field as the American Psychiatric Association, American Psychotherapy Association, American Pain Society, American Academy of Pain Medicine, National Registry of Certified Group Psychotherapists, and American Board of Psychiatry and Neurology, Inc.

Dr. Smith attributes his success to his role models, which include his father, and Robert Cancro, MD, a professor emeritus of psychiatry at NYU Grossman School of Medicine. Looking toward the future, he wishes to publish his non-psychiatric writings, including poetry. Among his favorite hobbies are reciting poetry aloud, traveling, and visiting art museums and galleries. His wife, Leora Skolkin-Smith, is an accomplished novelist with several published books.
