I've seen Dr. Melanie Smith on several occasions beginning in 2004. She performed surgery back then that went so well my recovery time was half that of what was expected. I saw her again 2017. She is and has always been very professional, knowledgeable and friendly. She has been spot on in her diagnosis of me. I wouldn't dream of going anywhere else unless she referred me out herself. I highly recommend her!!!!

I had to wait for Dr. Smith to return from hospital. I was told this emergency response very understandable. Explained to me my problem and it would be treated. I was very happy with my visit. The staff was very courteous and friendly.

They get 1 star for being able to book me an appointment. Waited for an hour and a half and only spoke briefly with one person. Very unprofessional, wouldn't recommend and I never post negative reviews.

Best ENT since dr. kiszer
in Little Rock ar |
All the staff was very nice. Doctor was rude, rushed the appt, blew of my concerns, was stuck up and pretty rude.

Courteous staff. Short wait time. Dr. Smith was professional, efficient and knowledgeable. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. 5 stars.
Neither professional nor thorough. Had to ask her to look at my throat! She came across as rude & insulting not only to me but towards my doctor who referred me to her. She also rushed through the appointment blowing off any concerns/questions I had. I definitely won't be back to her practice if I need an ENT in the future. I read other reviews and thought it would be a good experience but that was not the case. Insulting my doctor for sending me/concerns was very unprofessional & unacceptable.

I was very pleased with Dr Smith, both with the services provided in her office and the surgery she performed. The surgery was very successful and there were absolutely no complications. I would recommend her with no reservations.
