Visited Dr. Smith for a procedure yesterday and saw him in his office a few days before. He is a kind. and it was clear that he was knowledgeable in his field. The staff emulates his attitude!!! I felt I was well cared for which added a lot of trust.

Dr Smith responded to emergency room call on behalf of my 95 year old father who has GERD and got a piece of food stuck in his esophagus. Dr Smith was called after emergency room was unsuccessful for 4+ hours. We were very scared by the situation! Dr Smith calmed everyone, resolved the problem, gave my parents a pep talk, and sent my father home with easy-to-execute instructions and a folllowup appt.

You can forget about hearing results!! It took 3 times, all on separate days, to get results of simple blood work. I paid over $1100 for an endoscopy, to be handed a piece of paper with findings. They only told me about one of 2 findings in my procedure... I had to google to find out what it meant. They missed ordered blood work on the day of my procedure, so I had to return to their office that afternoon. It has been a month, and I have yet to hear the results. I will be finding a new dr!!!!!!!

Dr. Smith is good all around. I have also seen his nurse practitioner, Mary Dotson. My experience with both providers and staff has been very satisfactory. I have no complaints at this time. Keep up the good work!
