Bingham Memorial Hospital is pleased to introduce Dr. Daniel P.W. Smith, fellowship-trained interventional pain management specialist. Before deciding upon a treatment plan, Dr. Smith takes a comprehensive approach by doing everything possible to determine the source(s) of a patient's pain. He specializes in using the most advanced, minimally invasive techniques for pain management, with a particular interest in spinal cord stimulation and regenerative medicine. This can include both stem cell and platelet rich plasma (PRP) injections, which promote the healing of injured tendons, ligaments, muscles, and joints. Dr. Smith earned his Bachelor of Science in Business Management, with a minor in Biology, from Brigham Young University-Idaho. He received his Doctor of Osteopathy from A.T. Still University, Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine, and was chief resident for an anesthesiology residency at University of Missouri-Kansas City. He then completed a fellowship in interventional pain medicine at the University of California-Davis, one of the national centers of excellence for his field. From a young age, Dr. Smith always knew that he wanted to be a doctor. He even shadowed an anesthesiologist in middle school, which gave him valuable insight into a career in medicine and pain management. Helping his patients find relief from their pain brings Dr. Smith a tremendous sense of joy and satisfaction. When Dr. Smith is not practicing medicine, he enjoys spending time with his wife and children. He also loves alpine skiing, mountain biking, golf, and a good science fiction novel.

My husband WAS a patient of Dr. Smith and Dr. Dector but no longer. This clinic and doctors lack of communication, failure to answer emergency calls, failure to show for appointments when we were told he would be there. Failure to answer ER calls of emergency. Failure of everything left my husband 3 times ambulance transported, 5 1/2 hour wait in ER to be looked at emergency spinal surgery. 5 day's in ICU 6 weeks of picc anti's 4 months of doing nothing!

Dr. Smith has always been nothing but wonderful to me. I have very complex medical problems and he's always ready to face them it head on! I've never had a physican who took the time to make sure my questions were answered and I was comfortable with the decisions being made. The office is busy but always worth the wait.

I admit I have frustration over how obsurdly busy pinnacle pain center is. However that isn't Dr. Smith's fault. I read all of the reviews on pinnacle pain center prior to seeing him. They were almost 99% absolutely awful. I was nervous but only pain center that Humana covered. So I went and Dr. Smith was so kind and compassionate that I will gladly deal with all of the hell of going to the office and getting in etc because of that compassion and kindness. Most amazing doc EVER to me!!
in Pasco, WA |
He was kind, intelligent and knew what he was talking about. Very impressed and highly recommend him!

I was suddenly faced with severe, debilitating back and leg pain and could barely walk. I saw Dr Smith who recommended an epidural. Two fulls days after the epidural I can walk again and am nearly back to baseline. Prior to meeting with Dr Smith and his business partners I worried that medications and the ER were my only options. I highly recommend Dr Smith and his highly trained staff to any friends or family!!

Despite the fact they are going through growing pains at Pinnacle, Dr. Smith is the most compassionate physician I have come across. I can't believe that someone would give a poor rating to him personally; with his help I have been able to play with my grandchildren and enjoy gardening, even after having been written off by other physicians.
Pendleton, OR |
Too many visits to come to no conclusion. Too many satellite offices without services. No way to contact him - office staff absolutely refused to allow a message. He thought he had a close professional relationship with a local neurosurgeon which turned out not to be the case (not his fault but he believed I would get a quick response and a recommendation - I received neither except a warning to stay away from there by the neurosurgeon's PA.)
