I have to preface this by saying I’m a new patient and have only seen him once so far, however, I was very impressed with Dr. Smith. He listens well and is very understanding and compassionate. I look forward to seeing him more in the future.

I went in for an epidural ( I have 13 before with another physician) and once prepped I was given a numbing injection and literally within 30 seconds he proceeded with the epidural. The only back pain I have experienced that bad was when the disc herniated. I told him that the pain was far greater than pressure and he just continued. I will never go back to this doctor again and have never experienced anything more than minor discomfort with any other epidural in the past.

He takes the time to listen and is very personable. I'm doing much better after a recent injection and back to work. Two thumbs up.

Dr Smith my name is Richard Bennett, I came to your office on 1/22/2018. For a consult. Basically your assistant informed me that my last 2 drug test said I had no sign of the drug tramadol. I find this very hard to believe as I took the medicine as prescribed, I ran out 1 day early on Saturday the 20th of January. It seems something went wrong with the testing procedure. The reason I know is my wife is the one who puts my medication in the holder for the day. The sample was under the front lip

Today, October 6, 2017, was my first visit to Dr. Jeffrey Smith. It was a very pleasant experience and he was very cordial. In fact, everybody there was nice. The whole staff is excellent and I had immediate relief even before I got home. I had an epidural steroid shot in my neck and I am very pleased with every aspect. I would highly recommend Dr. Jeffrey Smith and his staff I was in the health insurance business for 38 years and owned the Agency, Gossett Insurance Agency. *****

Before going to Dr.Smith with the many chronic health related problems I have,I was made to fell like what I was experiencing was all in my mind. Being a cancer survivor,having fibro and several or chronic issuses I knew better! Dr.Smith listened patiently,did a complete examination and set a plan in motion quickly! He made me feel human so to seak again! Finally!!!! I have a physician that not only hears my concerns but LISTENS! His sense of humor is AWESOME! I am very thankful for him!
