Dr. Smith was very timely and professional. He made sure my MRI, nerve study and follow up appointment were all on the same day to save me an extra trip to Amarillo. I’d definitely recommend him.

The very first visit took a long time but he was also very very busy. When I went back to the room everything was very quick. Dr. Smith and his staff are excellent. I have used him on both rotator cuff repairs. Very caring and professional staff. I would highly recommend to friends and family. Excellent surgeon and PA staff. Lisa Snow and Jay are wonderful.

I was having some pain in my hip and Dr. Smith's PA Lisa Snow got me in right away to have x-rays done, and to consult with Dr. Smith. I was very impressed how quickly they got me in. Both Lisa and Dr. Smith spent time with me explaining my condition and options for treatment. I highly recommend Dr. Smith and his staff.

I went to Dr. SMITH with an injured forearm, and not only was he able to tell me what was wrong with my arm right away, so did his assistant Lisa. They were very informative and helpful. Dr. SMITH is a very professional, nice man!!

Amarillo, TX – Aug 10, 2017
Highly recommend, knowledgeable staff. Had a very difficult problem which required a lengthy visit. I first saw the PA who spent a considerable amount of time with me, then the doctor came in and ordered more testing. MRI and labs were done in his office in a timely manner, then had a follow up appt to review my tests. Finally a diagnosis was made and surgery is scheduled. I continue to be impressed. Highly recommend.

Bailey in Fritch, Tx – Aug 04, 2017
Dr. Smith read the MRI - said I had a 90% torn rotator cuff - said surgery was required. After having to see the cardio doc for clearance (more $) and finally getting my surgery scheduled a month 1/2 later, turns out I had adhesive capsulitus. (frozen shoulder) Surgery is the LAST thing you want to do for that. He does not engage well - spends very little time accessing. I would not recommend him. Supposed to be a specialist--I beg to differ. He missed it by a mile and several thousand $.

I was fortunate to become a patient of Dr. Smith's since 1999. Over the years, being an active person...I have had to utilize his services from a wrist & shoulder. Dr. Smith & Staff are incredibly competent, professional & courteous. I have personally sent over 50 friends/family to imo...the most qualified & competent Ortho in Amarillo.
