in Millersville, MD |
I have been seeing Dr Smith for quite a while for Severe Degenerative joint disease of the wrists and hands. He is pleasant, interested in me as a whole and very skilled. He opts for the least severe course of action. Very nice bedside manner. I was there yesterday and could not help to notice the proficiency of ancillary staff. In addition they are pleasant, helpful and enable the office to run like clock work. Good job ladies!

He was absolutely wonderful. Personable and took time with my teenaged son to get all of the information needed for proper treatment.
