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.

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.
