About Neil Smerling, MD

Neil Smerling, MD, is an internal medicine specialist at Primary Care Physicians of Fairfield. He has been in practice for 26 years.

Dr. Smerling’s desire to practice medicine began when he was in the seventh grade. His love for primary care has done nothing but grow. “It’s the patients I enjoy most. I really enjoy talking with people and interacting. It’s very nice. It makes my day,” he said. But the most rewarding part of practicing medicine for him? “It’s really rewarding to say that I’ve really helped somebody that day,” he said.

Dr. Smerling is particularly proud of the team of caregivers in the Shelton clinic. “We all work as a team,” he said. “We collaborate. By working as a team, we are able to have extended office hours until nine o’clock at night several nights a week. That’s great for patients who have real jobs.”
