    I receive bi-weekly shots at the office. The staff is always prompt, friendly and professional. I can not recall waiting more than five minutes for a shot. I see Dr. Smith once a year to retest my allergies and consult. I have always found him to be very professional and knowledgable. I am happy with my progress under his care.

    Dr. Smith is very knowledgeable, figuring out how to get my allergies under control when other physicians couldn't. He has a great bedside manner, explains issues/treatments in an understanding way and his staff are wonderful. I have referred many of my family and friends, who saw other allergists but still struggled with their allergies, to Dr. Smith and he has improved their conditions and quality of life. In my opinion he is a "Miracle Worker".

I have recommended him to many of my friends who suffer from allergies. I have been going to them for over 10yrs and I am highly satisfied. The staff is like family, I wouldn't consider going anywhere else.

    Dr. Smith has helped me tremendously with my Asthma and Allergies. They were uncontrollable! I only have to use my rescue inhaler for extreme issues like strong fragrances and prior to exercising now. I feel very valued by both him and his staff. I would highly recommend him to any friend or family member.

    Dr. Smith is extremely knowledgeable in his field! He goes above and beyond to help find treatments for his patients. He has helped my son with his cold induced asthma and nut allergies. As well as my husband with his good sensitivities and environmental allergies. He is great with kids and spent time helping me put together a plan of action for my son's asthma to keep him from having to miss school and a course of action for his nut allergies.

    Prior to visiting Dr. Smith's office, I had been to several physicians without relief from my interstitial cystitis. Once I was food tested and eliminated these foods from my diet, I have a great improvement with my symptoms. I would highly recommend Dr. Smith's office.

    My asthma and allergies needed someone to treat them together - I found that help with Dr. Smith and his staff. My environment and food allergies are now controlled and because of that so is my asthma. I haven't needed my inhaler at all this spring - definitely beyond grateful for the help I have received since starting with Dr. Smith.
