    After I made an appointment with Dr. Smith, I read the reviews here. I almost canceled the appointment. Good thing I didn't. I was extremely impressed. He was prompt, convivial, he listened intently as I explained the complicated history of my knee pain, he ordered tests, made a diagnosis, and his treatment gave me speedy relief. He did not promise miracles. I am too old to expect them. Ignore the negative reviews here.

    Dr. Michael J. Smith, MD is NOT a good or caring doctor. He lacks compassion and interest in helping the patient understand his/her diagnosis. I accompanied my father to two appointments with Dr. Smith and both of us were appalled by Dr. Smith's behavior. He could not wait to leave the room to see another patient. He never asked if we had any questions. All he wanted to do is to set up my dad with multiple follow-up appointments so he can keep collecting the $65 co-pay per visit. Please avoid.

    I had shoulder surgery. Following surgery, Dr. Smith did not let my husband or I know the results. When we asked the nurse, we were told he was doing surgery on the next patient. Orders to the physical therapist were wrong with incorrect diagnosis. Follow up visits post op were a waste of time. There is not space enough to say why I would not trust this doctor.

    I've met with several Orthopedic doctors who specialized in shoulders recently and very pleased with my experience with Dr. Smith, even though he was not able to help my with my shoulder problem. he thoroughly examed my shoulder both times and I was satisfied with the amount of time he spent with me.
