He was the rudest dr I have ever met and I will NEVER go back! He was showing me how to use a new inhaler. When I did not use it correctly, he started shaking his head and huffing and puffing very rude! I said I am doing the best I can (I have asthma and was not breathing all That great). He committed in a rude tone and said “ well some people need to try harder or get a kick in the butt! “. I said it won’t be you and your better side manner stinks! Horrible man!!!!

Experience is not so great. Dr sent in prescription to pharmacy on Tuesday, 8/22 - pharmacy had questions, spoke to office, faxed in information per office request and the prescription is still not ready. No one from the office will respond to the pharmacy and so for 4 days there has been no prescription.

Unfortunately, my father had a bad experience with this doctor. For 6 months, Dr. Smith insisted my father had Asthma. Luckily we switched doctors and learned that my father had MAC Lung Disease. We lost 6 months of possible treatment which caused serious setbacks. I would not recommend this doctor.
