I saw Dr. Smith for several years and endured waits in the waiting room for 2 hours or more. He insisted he could cure my migraines. Instead I am addicted to Lyrica. I was dependent on Stadol, but got off that. In the end , my migraines were no better. In fact, I was worse. Migraines are not...more

I cannot say enough about this doctor. He truly cares about his patients and you are not just another patient walking though the door. I have never met a doctor like him nor do I think I will ever. He goes above and beyond to get a diagnosis and treatment.

Always took the time to listen to me and address my concerns and questions. Sorry to see him moving out of state because he was the best Neurologist in town. I know I will not find another great doctor to take over my medical treatment.

Proceed with caution. There is a reason he no longer takes health insurance. I hope this comment protects someone.
