in Basalt, CO |
Dr. Bruce Smith is a problem-solver and knows his field to the highest degree. I was miserable and had been improperly diagnosed by two physicians, one who gave me incredibly powerful and potentially dangerous antibiotics for what was simply a physical problem.. To see Dr. Smith, I traveled five hours and it was worth every mile! I was better within minutes and now know how to prevent this from happening again. Sounds simple but it was not. He's outstanding and so is his staff!
Laramie, WY |
Dr. Smith performed sinus surgery on me this summer. He is an outstanding doctor and surgeon. Staff is professional, prompt, and informative. Dr. Smith is an expert, and my breathing is amazing as a result. I highly recommend Dr. Bruce Smith!
in Loveland, CO |
Do not trust this man with your child! He will butcher them enough to require emergency surgery and not even care. My daughter almost died from a simple routine procedure.

This man has no business being a doctor he ruined my nose left me deformed for life.

I love love DR. Smith! He is a no fuss kind of guy and he fixed me right up!
in Fort Collins, CO |
I went in to investigate reoccurring dizziness and vertigo paired with several other symptoms like hearing loss, and I was treated very poorly. He was impolite and condescending and I felt like he was just trying to write off my concerns as a feminine issue relating to my menstrual cycle. I will not be going back. The other staff was very polite and accommodating however. I am just disappointed that their kindness was overshadowed by his behavior.
in Cheyenne, WY |
I had a paralyzed left vocal cord, which my ENT in Cheyenne refused to treat me as I asked him to. So, I called a neurosurgeon in Ft. Collins, Colorado, who had previously treated me, and asked for the name of a really good ENT. Dr. Smith was the answer to my prayers, restoring me to full usefulness of my vocal cords. I cannot emphasize too much what a kind and caring ENT he is. I would recommend him to anyone!
