Dr. Kimberly Smith is a kind, intelligent, and knowledgeable doctor. She also in the kindest and most patient doctor I have ever been to in my life. I feel very comfortable with her. She takes her time to listen and care for her patients.

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.

Dr. Smith always takes time to listen to me and asks pertinent questions. She is a very caring person. She is very up to date on my treatment and often surprises me on how aware she is of what is going on with me and with treatment I receive from other doctors. She is very encouraging and very focused on making me better. I trust her completely and recommend her without reservation. Her staff is fantastic.
Fantastic Doctor. Amazing bedside manner. Always listened carefully and let me ask all questions I had. She truly sought to make my arthritis pain better.
