Very disappointed with the Doctor. Will not see him again. First time patient with Dr Smith due to back pain consisting of "pinched nerve" on the right side and dull pain on the left side. Took x-rays and had a diagnosis with the Dr. The Dr. could not diagnose my cause of the pain, said the x-rays looked fine, and scheduled me to physical therapy. I am very disappointed that he did not want to do any further examination/diagnose of my back pain, particularly the cause of my back pain. He didn't really seem interested with my questions and concerns. He wanted to milk me for all he can by sending me to physical therapy without knowing the cause! Don't be fooled by his exterior as he presents himself as an elderly experienced physician. He is just another Dr. trying to make as much money as possible!

Dr. Smith is not just one of the best orthopedic doctors, he's one of the best doctors period. I would recommend him for any member of my family or friends.

Dr. James Smith is an excellent listener who inspires the patient’s confidence by giving detailed information and the best plan to tackle one’s orthopedic concerns. I’ve known him for 23 years, and have always had great respect for his medical expertise.

Fantastic “bedside” manner! Kept my visit light while still providing more insight and understanding about my condition than 3 other doctors. I left comfortable with the next steps and self-care.

This is an amazing Doctor/Surgeon, he walked my wife and I in detail throughout the entire process, we didn't have very many questions because he was so thorough with his explanations. Bottom line is my back went from constant pain to near perfect and of course pain free.. I highly recommend Dr Smith for any of your surgery needs.

I just saw Dr Smith yesterday (May 11, 2022). Dr. Smith was recommended to me by a friend who has had extensive treatments for his back problems. I had high hopes that I would get straight answers and the best advice from him, and I felt that I did. He explained in detail what was going on in my lower back by showing the MRIs and X-ray and pointing out exactly what is causing pain, tingling and numbness. I am going to see him again in about a month or so with a whole new list of questions. It appears that right now, surgery is in the offing, since PT was not effective in the longer term.

Dr Smith was simply put AMAZING! I went in for a second option and he explained everything to me so well. Like I could actually understand what was going on. He’s very lighthearted and funny which made me feel so much less stressed during my visit. I went in almost in tears and left with a smile on my face because I felt heard and understood as well as with a plan.

This man has saved my life. I’ve struggled with back pain for years that progressively got worse. I first met Dr. Smith in 2017 after my primary doctor kept saying I just had a pulled muscle in my back. I found out I had a herniated disc and two bulging discs. From 2017-2020 I got worse. I had a total of four epidural injections and three MRIs. I went to the hospital in Sept. because I was in so much pain and couldn’t walk. l was put on heavy pain medicine for over a month until Dr. Smith performed a discectomy surgery on me in Oct. I went from pain to pain free instantly. From being in a wheelchair to walking. Dr. Smith is the only doctor who listened to me. He is very easy to talk to and makes visits light hearted with humor. He’s intelligent, but will answer any question you have in a way that is easy to understand. He’s very thorough and will try all conservative methods first before surgery. I can’t say enough good things, but I thank him everyday for giving me my life back.

Dr. Smith performed an L4-L5 fusion on my spine 5 months ago and I am now pain free. Prior to surgery, I was having sciatica down my right leg such that I was finding it increasingly difficult to walk or do any kind of exercise. He is easy to talk to, has a nice sense of humor, and most importantly, a skilled surgeon.
