Dr.Smith is absolutely amazing! I have been seeing her as my doctor since I was about 9 years old, and 13 years has passed and I could never be more pleased. Not only does she care about your health but she cares on a personal level as well. I wish she could be my doctor for everything! Until then she will remain the best Allergy Doc on the planet!!!

She is the first doctor I've seen that has actually laid out a working diagnosis and treatment rather than just throw a rescue inhaler to mask the symptoms. Her demeanor is warm and professional....can't get much better in my book!

My 11 year-old daughter and I were very impressed with Dr. Smith. I love her bedside manner. She truly takes the time to sit and listen to both my daughter and myself. She explained her knowledge of what could be causing my daughter's allergies. When I expressed concern, Dr. Smith was quick to make me feel at ease and reminded me the route we were taking may not be the route to get her allergies under control, but for us to try it out for the time being. i also loved being the only patient there
