What People Say About Dr. Laurance Smith, MD

When I initially saw Dr. Smith I thought he was caring, kind and knowledgeable. However, after a couple of visits i realized he was patronising and clueless. He doesn't appear to truly know what's you going on and relys on other Dr's. To investigate for him. He also doesn't listen so you have to repeat the same thing over and over again and he responds back in a patronising voice with fake compliment It's a waste of time and money seeing him. oh yea, & he's never on time for his appointments!

If I could give zero stars I would. Once again this doctor is late for an appointment just left right before I hitcher for my scheduled appointment. He doesn't care about his patients time.

I saw Dr. Smith a year ago for peripheral neuropathy following my car accident. He was caring and responsive and spent extra time with me and my wife. Saw another Doctor for follow-up (I forget her name) and she was fine.

Talks to patients like there morons ! Does nothing to help and sends you back to the Dr . You came from . He shouldnt get paid for anything ! Clearly doesnt even have enough education to write a referral! Better to talk to a nutritionist
