The Cladis Medical Story

Cladis Medical PLLC was founded by Dr. Matthew E. Smith, MD, in 2022. Cladis Medical PLLC is a physician-owned, veteran-owned small business. During Dr. Smith’s military service, he recognized the need for first responders and healthcare professionals to be able to quickly and accurately treat pediatric patients affected by weapons of mass destruction.

In the event that children are harmed by the world’s most dreadful weapons, the healthcare system will be overwhelmed, and the people our communities count on to respond to this crisis may need to use medications they aren’t familiar with, or use medications they know in ways they never have before that moment.

Dr. Smith made it his goal to create a handheld reference to equip them with the knowledge they will need to save the lives of their patients if they are in such an event. The Chart of Antidotes and Medications for Pediatric Patients of Chemical, Biological, Radiological, and Nuclear Events was developed over several years to put the culmination of Dr. Smith’s training, education, and expertise into your hands.

Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB)Cladis Medical PLLC is certified by the Veteran Small Business Certification Program (VetCert) and can be found publicly as a Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business (SDVOSB) at veterans.certify.sba.gov.
