Gary, IN |
Best doctor I've had in decades knowledgeable, really listens, patient and caring. A blessing.
Schererville, IN |
I was very disappointed with the staff at Dr Smiths office in Dyer IN. First they wanted me to leave my autistic child in the waiting room alone even after I told them he could wonder off. Then after finally being allowed to bring him back so I could help with my mother in law was told that since I was not her power of attorney they would not be able to treat her! Dr Smith did nothing. I could not believe this! He treated her 4 years ago! So disgusted with this office!

Kind & considerate. Listens to me and asks questions. Dr Smith called me on a Sunday with my positive test results (good news)
in St John, IN |
Dr Smith was kind and compassionate. He listened to my symptoms and tried his best to figure out what he could or could not do for me.

Everything was good on the phone and they sent me the forms to fill out. The wait time to get an appointment was a fair amount of time. I was told to arrive 15 minutes early and we did. I wanted my wife with me we waited a hour and a half from 11:10 to 12:05 then went up to receptionist to ask how much longer and it was like I was bothering her she told me when a room becomes available so I went back and sat down waited a little while longer and got up and left. Should not have to wait that long

Dan failed to provide critical information on my test results for eight months due to his inability or lack of computer knowledge in opening My Charts in the Community Hospital data base. He has promised medication he was unable to provide due to his lack of procedural knowledge. His staff has sent my prescriptions to wrong fax numbers resulting in months of delay. If he says he going to treat you like his brother; watch out
