Patient Comments (2)

Dr. Smith has performed 2 surgeries for me. One replacing a disc at C6-7 in 1997 and another in my lower back -total stenosis of the spine, 2 discs bulging on sciatic nerve,etc. in 2000. His expertise and professionalism were above the average, exceedingly so. I would put my trust in him above anyone in his field.

First you never can talk ton person on the phone. Secondly patient portal is ALWAYS down. Third he doesn't listen to anything said, he acts superior to all and thinks no one knows anything. I have dealt with him dismissing me and my continued symptoms for 16 months with nothing but pain and suffering.
