Dr. Smith is a very caring and knowledgeable doctor. He has brought my gastrointestinal issues under control and diagnosed my issues quickly and correctly. He will always call me back same day with protocol and procedures. He listens to the patient and makes you feel as you are a team working together. Can't say enough how wonderful he is and I would recommend him to anyone.

I have been apatient of Dr Smith since 2001. He is incredible, has controled my ulceraive cholitis for 15 year, and is very easy to contact. Every time I leave him a message with his office , he calls me basck the same day while driving home or early the next morning while driving to the hospital. What other Doctor does that? None in my experience. An exceptional physician!

Dr. Smith was referred to me by a friend and I since have referred him to multiple friends. He is caring, consistent, a great listener, full of life, answers, and suggestions. He makes dealing and working with my Chron's disease more than manageable. Putting the patient first since my first visit!
