I was cared for by this group while a patient at Atrium CMC. They carefully supervised my care before completing a necessary procedure. I was kept informed and treated with kindness the entire time. My follow-up appointment was given personal attention by the office staff . Mike McCormick, PA, was thorough and reassuring during that visit.

I really don't understand what some people look for in a doctor. Dr. Mark Smith operated on me August 2019 and again 2 days ago and I could not ask for a better surgical experience. If you are looking for a doctor that talks a lot and wants to listen to you complain you might have the wrong doctor but if you are looking for a great, knowledgable surgery you can find that in Dr. Smith.

I cannot say enough about the care I received from Dr. Smith and all of his staff! I was seen for a significantly large herniated cervical disc that I had been struggling with for 6 weeks and was scheduled for a discectomy the very next day thanks to a cancellation. My symptom relief was immediate! I’m so very thankful for his professionalism, honesty and expertise!
