I found Dr. Smith to be very unprofessional. Between the fact that it took me a month to get an appointment with him. And with over two hour wait times in his waiting room.His patronizing attitude about the pain I was going through was unacceptable. I never received a diagnosis yet he charged my Insurance well over $2000 for one visit. Something should be done about doctors like him. He is The perfect example of why health care cost so much. Worst experience I have ever had with a doctor.

I saw Dr. Smith in California shortly before he moved to Arkansas. My condition is very difficult to diagnose. At best, most physicians I have spoken with in the past tell me they can't help because they have never before seen my unusual set of symptoms. Dr. Smith listened carefully and compassionately. Although I didn't need his particular specialty, he gave me thoughtful and insightful advice that has really helped me think about what I should do next. I am continuing to follow his advice.

Dr Smith helped me with L5S1 surgery and also cervical fusion a year apart of each surgery in Califirnia. He was so wonderful. Truly an amazing surgeon and Doctor. I am after 4 years of my cervical fusion in need of further treatment and thinking seriously if flying to see him! He is the best if the best! Cathy F

I was a patient of Dr. Smith's in CA and had 2 cervical surgeries. Not only does he have a sincere and caring bedside manner, but his PATIENTS come FIRST! He doesn't allow others to bully him...if you need a procedure he'll help FIGHT for authorization! Sadly, I'm in need of another fusion and once you've had the best, it's hard to find one. I wish I could fly back, if for nothing else, his opinion,. Trust him, you'll be glad you DID
