      This review is on the office it's self. Not Dr. Smith. Dr. Smith is a good Dr. however he does have idiots in office that cannot manage a business. I was scheduled for a sleep study, I get a call the day before from Jelica the office manager. Saying they needed to cancel my sleep study because they didn't get the authorization from my insurance. I had my wife call the insurance who in turn tells us that they never received the authorization from the office. The office admitted they had failed

      Dr. Smith is awesome!!! He diagnosed me with sleep apnea 20 years ago, and my health issues have improved 100%. He actually saved my life about three years ago: at my yearly checkup, he told me that he heard my heart making some strange sounds and suggested I get it checked out. I did, and it turned out my widow maker artery had 95% blockage in two places. I ended up having two stynts placed in that artery. It was a major heart attack just waiting to happen! Thanks, Dr, Smith!!
