I am an RN.....I've been going to Dr Smith for years with fiscal in my neck (of which I have no more pain ftom because of him.)...I'm now getting injections gor my back (5 back surgeries later). He is caring, wonderful and extremely apt and knowledgeable. No one else would come near ne with a needle like these doctors have to use. 5 stars gor Dr. SMITH, He's great and the office is nice.

I had a discogram performed by Dr. Smith. While it is a painful and uncomfortable procedure Dr. Smith was very honest in explaining the procedure fully, what I could expect, was kind and compassionate. I would recommend Dr. Smith if you have to have a discogram. You would want someone of his nature to perform such a procedure.

Waited a long time for an appointment. Easy check in; extremely nice office staff. Perfectly fine environment He was certainly pleasant enough. However,he asked few questions; didn't seem to be listening; showed no insight or curiosity and proposed no treatment options of practical value. Pretty much a waste of my time and, I suppose, his. Might be ok if your problem is a simple one.

Waited months for appointment. Waited almost an hour in office. He didn't explain ANYTHING or gave me any resonable options for treatment. I would stay clear of this guy, it's amazing how these doctors still get so many clients.
Very knowledgable and explains things well. Still don't have the answers I am looking for due to ongoing back pain which comes and goes. Can never get an appointment within a reasonable time frame due to his reputation which may not be a bad thing. It becomes frustrating when you're in pain and can't get in to see him for at least three months every time you call.
