What People Say About Dr. Andrew Smythe, DO
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
Dr. Smythe is fantastic. He’s a great listener and really works to get to the root of the problem, instead of just treating symptoms. He has an excellent bedside manner and is extremely knowledgeable. He’s almost always on time and never seems rushed. I can’t say enough good things about him.

Dr. Smythe is very kind. I was so sad to move out of the area and not be able to keep seeing him. He is the first doctor who I felt comfortable actually discussing my weight with in a productive way; I do not feel ashamed of being overweight, and he was very supportive of that lack of shame. I do like to keep my health in mind, and he was very good at supporting me in discussing health-related habits in a way that did not feel biased or fatphobic. My habits have improved since this visit.
