Dr. Smith has to be one of the best doctors I've ever had the privilege of meeting!! He is extremely professional, very nice, very sympathetic to your needs and emtions. He helps you through what's going on with you, ive had 7 back surgeries, and was a horrible patient of his. No matter how many appts i missed (on accident!) Or how many times i rescheduled, he was ALWAYS professional and light hearted about me missing.
