Pleasant, caring and thoughtful. I've never been to an office that showed as much personal concern and efficiency in providing me and my mother with care. Doctor Smith assisted us with securing home health services and medication assistance for medications we could not afford. He is humble and knowledgeable.

Remonia Ashmore, RN, MSN a patient for many years, former employee. Cares for 6 members of my family. He is innovative in his service delivery always working towards improving the health outcomes of his patients and the community. He is conscientious, committed, caring and professional to his patients and their families. He educates his patients using evidenced based research. He utilizes high tech equipment and his staff and his office is impeccable. I thank God for his presence and care.
in Chico, CA |
The man is arrogant, self important, rude to his staff and to his patients. He spent most of my appointment trying to get his computers to work and yelling at his staff. Though I was there for overwork stress-related issues, he gave me his letterhead, business card, and old brochures which had numerous typos. My next appointment, in front of all his staff, he berated me as being too critical and cancelled my appointment because I pointed out his phone number on his invoices. Not stable.
