Worst Doctor ever. Thinks he knows everything. Doesn't listen to your concerns just sits there and nods his head and gets his money. Nurses are rude and incompetent. No test are done in the office, nothing. Do not go there and wast your time or money.

I was seen here in 2014 and had to have work done on L3,4 &5. I had amazing results afterwards. Within 3 weeks after surgery I was back to running regularly just like before I was injured. Dr. Andrade is not going to do something you don’t need is kind of how I took his words.

Dr Smith performed a spinal fusion on me and corrected my scoliosis from a 63 degree curve to 0 degree. That was seven years ago and I’m still pain-free and very active. Dr. Smith is an excellent doctor and surgeon. He was very informative and encouraging! I’m so grateful for him!

I have been using him since I was 11. I am 35 and still love him. He always listens to me, he found my gallbladder was bad and called a surgeon on his personal phone and told him to meet me. He is awesome and I will go to him until he retires!!!!
