CapitalCare Internal Medicine River Road


It is with much regret that we announce Dr. Smitas will be leaving the practice at the end of July. She is a dedicated physician and colleague, and it has been a great pleasure working with her. She will be deeply missed; we wish her all the best in her new career.

Dr. Tonneau and Christina McGaffin, NP are committed to provide continuity of care and will accommodate Dr. Smitas’ patients who wish to stay with our practice. We are actively recruiting for another provider to join the office. We understand that some of you may want to leave the practice. Niskayuna Internal Medicine, located on the first floor of our River Road location is accepting new patients. If you are interested, please call 518-381-9355.

We thank you for your patience during this process and look forward to continuing to serve your medical needs.

For the safety of our staff and other patients, we are not seeing any patients in the office who have fever, cough, sneezing, sore throat or shortness of breath. If you have these symptoms and feel you need to be seen, please call us and we can direct you to the appropriate location. Patients who need testing or an exam will continue to be seen in our office. We will call you in advance to be sure you are not experiencing symptoms of COVID-19.

Please do not cancel your appointments - we want to continue to keep you as healthy as possible and we do not want any of you neglecting your health during this stressful time.

Lastly, please understand that the number of calls to our office has been very high. If you have a non-urgent question or concern, please communicate with us via the patient portal so that we can keep the phone lines come for those with urgent issues. Thank you and we hope that we will be able to get back to usual business soon. In the meantime, stay home and stay staff.
