What People Say About Dr. Brien Smith, MD

I don’t have the words describe what a wonderful doctor, and human being he is. So many neurologists, and so many years of my life wasted, by telling me there’s no cure for my seizures, wait for the “miracle” pill, surgery won’t help you, etc. Some even accused me of lying, and some, of doing drugs. Never did drugs! Found Dr. Smith and within two years in his care I was healed. Dr. Smith gave me back the life seizures stole and worthless neurologists wasted on useless drugs!

He was very knowledgeable, and was up front when he was not positive that a treatment would benefit me or not. I would recommend him.
