Dr. Ben Smith, a radiologist, has joined Essentia Health-St. Mary’s in Detroit Lakes.

Smith grew up in Little Falls, Minn., and likes living in a small town.


“I wanted a small-town practice because you can have more personal relationships,” he said.

As part of his practice, Smith offers interventions for pain. “Many of the procedures offer immediate pain relief and lasting benefits to patients,” he said. “That’s rewarding.”
