I highly recommend Dr. Brian Smith. He is punctual, professional, and very knowledgeable. He has done 2 different steroid injections on my wrist. He explains everything to you as a patient; what's going on, what's going to happen and why. Then during the procedure, he tells you what he is doing....more
