Dr. Smith is the kindest, most caring doctor ever. He has been helping me with a severely chronic back issue for the last three years. If it were not for him, I wouldn't be mobile today. I owe him more than I could ever repay. He is patient and devotes endless time with each patient.

Dr. Smith is an absolutely amazing doctor. He has the best bedside manor. Takes time to listen to you, offers you advice and he has never steered me wrong. I’ve been with him for about 3 years for my fibromyalgia. Love him! -Mandy

Dr. Smith is absolutely the best doctor I've ever seen. He demonstrates a tremendous amount of wisdom, patience and the desire to do what's best for me each and every time I've seen him. I asked Dr. Smith to administer a trigger point injection to my occipital nerve to help me with severe headaches. He was the first doctor to ever utilize ultra sound to locate the nerve prior to injection. I am now pain free! Thank you Dr. Smith!!
