What People Say About Dr. Matthew Smuck, MD
Reply
I was recommended to Dr. Smuck for Arthritis in my neck C2-C3 that came up out of nowhere last October 2017. I saw Dr. Smuck in Dec and tried a Steroid shot in to the joint along with a nerve block. I got some relief. I tried again in Feb for a second round and this time he hit the exact spot. Thank goodness for this treatment. It ahs been 2 weeks since the injection and so far I have 90% of the mobility in my neck back and have been pain free!!!! I would recommend him to anyone. He is the best

He did not listen to my symptoms , was not caring or compassionate. I was not drug seeking. I was in severe pain looking for answers and then a solution. I saw him in 2011 for 2 visits. I have since seen three doctors in 2012/13 who recommended surgery. Got surgery in October 2013.
