    I have been under Dr. Smith care for many years. She is highly regarded by other doctors and medical professionals that I have also visited. I would not hesitate to recommend her to others. Her "bedside" manner is exceptional.

    Dr. Smith and her staff are amazing! I have very few health issues, and my husband has many. Dr.Smith handles each of us with the same concern and professionalism. She stays up to date with all of the latest recommendations and talks with us in a caring, but earnest fashion. I can honestly recommend Lees Summit Family care. My sister in law sees her now too!

    I have been a patient of Dr. Smith's for more than 15 years. She's very knowledgeable and even more importantly, willing to take time to listen to me personally, not just what's wrong. She never rushes through an appointment to get to the next. I've always felt very comfortable and very confident with her skills as a physician. My daughter grew up with her and has continued with her as an adult as well.
