Patient Reviews (3)
Dr. Smith has a great, I mean really great pulmonology tech, Debbie. As for Dr. Smith himself, he is condescending, arrogant and not particularly observant relating to health problems in his field. I went to see him 5 years or so ago complaining of difficulty breathing and tiredness. He had me tested for a $950 inhaler and was so pleased with the increase in my PFT 42%-> 52% that he ignored the fact that I felt no difference and ONLY on my wife's insistence tested my O2 levels. My O2 was 82%

NEVER!!!The RUDEST Doctor and person I have ever met. Not at all concerned about patient concerns. My husband was admitted to Boulder Hospital at night and we were told the doctor would be by a 8 when he finally showed up at 10 he had an entourage of people and never even came into my husbands room. The entire entourage stayed outside of his room and called me out to talk about his case. They then reviewed only a few minor details and when I shared my concerns I was immediately shut down

He is moody and sometimes has really bad bedside manner. He can be a little patronizing and very rude.
