Dr Smith is very empathetic to my arthritis pain and very thorough. It generally is hard to find a Rheumatologist that you are comfortable with but I found her a perfect fit on my very first visit. I have been seeing her for almost 2 years and wouldn't consider a change in physicians.

I liked her at first, but she basically is not doing anything for me or my symptoms that continue to worsen. She repeats labs, but the lupus tests are neg and is basing her dx solely on the labs and not the symptoms that are present. Very disappointed with her f/u and what comes across to me, as faked caring and concern. Her physical exams are a joke and worth- less and my visits are rushed like she doesn't want to be bothered. Her front office staff at the BBDowns office are a bit rude too.

Dr. Kimberly Smith is a highly rated Rheumatologist, no one could imagine her greatness. ?The blood results didn't prove my disease that is common. I was the poster girl for Sjogren's. After confirming my missing blood proof, she continued to talk about treatment; short & long term meds. I asked if we were just treating without a diagnosis. "No, you have a diagnosis, Sjogren's". Dr. Smith is my “Let there be light”. I feel truly confident that health lives just a few more heart beats away.

I was a new patient in the spring of 2017. The office is very shabby - rips on the exam table with the stuffing coming out. The Medical Assistant took my weight and medical history in the hall with everyone walking by. The doctor prescribed a medicine that I had a reaction to - could not get out of bed, and fainted. I called the office and spoke to the Medical Assistant. She said I could call 911 if there was a problem. I asked to speak to the Doctor and she said I could make an appt.
