Valley Center, CA |
Totally, negligent care, and office mismanagement. Calls not returned, authorizations not made. Had complications from an epidural, and not sure Dr. Smith ever knew I came in with much pain, and possible infection. Never heard from anyone in the office to find out if I was O.K. Followup was, again, to be with the P.A. I had, 2 yrs. ago, 7 epidurals, over 2 yrs. with another Dr., and never had a problem, so this wasn't my first Rodeo.

Had a wonderful experience with Dr. Smith, his PA's and his office staff. Was seen very promptly for my condition, and had my procedure scheduled shortly thereafter. Highly recommend this practice to anyone in need of chronic pain care!

He has an excellent staff and a great bedside manner. He made me comfortable with what could be considered a scary procedure and it turned out to be a great experience.

I was referred to Dr. Smith by my Neurologist. Dr. Smith is A WONDERFUL DOCTOR. The problem is I had 1 consult with him, and only saw him briefly in the procedure room & pre-op which he did my IV's he was the BEST. This review is solely based on his PA & Office Staff. Funny how I read a review from this website posted on January 30, 2016. They were in total agreement of HOW MEAN HIS OFFICE STAFF IS. I thought I had moved forward in regards to this my final follow up appt. but NO.

Excellent this is the only doctor that i trust the only one that doesn't judge you and the only one that provided me with answers about my condition everyone else thinks its nothing but yet i am in excruciating pain so sad when I couldn't go anymore because my insurance changed then the staff began to be mean and treated me with nothing but horrible disrespect I've never been so much disrespected in my life and the sad thing is that they control the two offices how can i see him iwould pay
