I’ve been seeing Dr. Smith about 4 years. She’s not empathetic, not engaged, treating me more as a bother than a patient. She never was very caring, I just didn’t notice since I got relief from the migraines except for recently. Since then it just seems like she thinks I’m a bother. Her MA is more caring.

Dr Smith has been my neuro for 4 years now, I suffer migraines with aura( dizzy spells) & suffered from black outs. She has worked very closely with me to help with my progress & adjust medications as needed. I do still suffer with vertigo(aura)& migraines but no more black outs & the migraines are not as severe as they once were. I recommend & appreciate Dr Smith.

"Ms. Smith" is a striking misrepresentation of medicine and patient care. Her complete disregard for devising a plan along with the patient to ensure short/long-term success is completely undeniable. She lacks professionalism and bed-side manner as it relates to her condescending tone, arrogance, and personal views regarding treatment. She should no longer be allowed to treat patients, neither voice her unwarranted personal views and "lines in the sand". I would never recommend her!!

I saw Dr. Smith in January 2017 as a new patient for migraine headaches, dizziness, and seizure like symptoms. She never did an exam, only asked a few questions, and recommended an MRI and to start taking Topamax even after I told her I had eye pressure, borderline glaucoma, and severe chronic dry eye disease. Thank God I checked with my opthamologist, as the Topamax was deadly for my condition. She never called with the results of my MRI, and never gave me a diagnosis for my seizures. BEWARE!

I was referred to Dr Smith by my primary care physician. It took the staff 72 hours to return my phone call requesting and appointment. When I did speak with someone, they were cold and rude. I decided to choose another doctor.

Dr. Smith is one of the best doctors I have ever been to. She took time to make sure she listened to every detail of my symptom and never rushed or interrupted me. I could tell she genuinely cared about my symptoms and tried everything she could think of in order to help me. I could see her concern and genuine desire to help on her facial expressions. Her kindness is something I will surely remember. I highly recommend Dr. Smith.
