Patient Reviews (5)
Denver, CO |
Sought a surgeon offering minimally invasive surgery. I was impressed at the friendliness of his staff and ease in scheduling surgery. I'm a few months out and couldn't be happier with the results. Small incisions and I'm pain free. I have no reservations in recommending Dr. Smith to anyone.

I was referred to this doctor by my pcp for chronic back pain. I was given 2 epidural nerve blocks... just enough to have a taste of how magnificent life could be without crippling pain (I am disabled)... Then his services just stopped.... If you're looking for arrogance, he & his office are perfect....
Our office always attempts to provide conservative pain management options first. When a patient improves, as seemingly occurred in this instance, we often would not recommend surgery. However if the pain recurs, then we would encourage this patient or any other to come see us again to discuss pain management options. Of course not every patient is a candidate for surgery.

If I could take stars away I would!! This neurologist nearly killed my brother because of his ego!! He would not consult or allow another neurologist to see him!! I wouldn't allow him anywhere near your family.

Dr. Smith likes to make sure he is still in his evaluation and I tell you everything he hopes to do to help you feel better
He is the best!!! I had facial spasms for 5 years, I was prescribed too many and different medications, nothing worked. Neither botox. I was desperated and depressed, until I decided to get surgery. Dr Smith gave me confidence and faith. Recovery was quick, without complications or side effects. Dr. Smith changed mi life. Virginia Verduzco
