Just met with Dr. SMITH this morning and truly, I could not be happier. TV, patient and understanding. I had my bypass two months ago,.. so, I walked in plenty of questions. She took the time to explain to me what I was feeling, from the physical to theemotional symptoms. It is a shame that I can only give her 5 stars for surely I would go higher. Knute Winston Salem, NC

It always takes 3 to 4 hours in that doctor's office. she doesn't communicate well with her patients. she doesn't even know you by name. she has too many appointments. Went one day at 2 pm and did not leave until 6 30 pm. it is ridiculous. She won't even touch you other than to look at your stomach and make you say ahhh! It is just crazy. You get prescriptions and don't even know it. She needs to focus on her patients or get some help, because she is too slow. your health is in danger!

I was a new patient and was told to arrive 20 minutes prior to my appointment to fill out paperwork. I arrived at 1:40 for my 2pm appointment. I was not checked in or even acknowledged until 2:15. After being checked in I wasn't even given any paperwork to fill out. At 3:20 a nurse finally came in and did my vitals. The nurse then proceeded to put a cup with my name down on the sink and walk out. I did not see or hear from anyone for 2 hours after that.
