Patient Comments (5)
Chattanooga, TN |
He is the kindest, most caring doctor I have ever experienced. His bed-side manner is amazing! He made me feel cared for through a miscarriage and the birth of my first child. I would recommend him to anyone in need of an OB/GYN.

Dr. Smith is the BEST OB I have ever been to! He is so nice and he actually cares about and remembers his patients. He is awesome and I wish he was a GP so that I could see him for everything! Hands down the best OB in Chattanooga! I have recommended him to multiple friends and family members and they all have the same opinion. Even the ones that couldn't get in to see Dr. Smith see his partner (Dr. Boyd) and he is equally amazing!

Loved him he was always truthful to me difficult pregnancy and never mention a c section
in Chattanooga |
This guy lies through his teeth! He only performs C sections and will lie to get you to agree to one. He literally told us our baby would never live through a vaginal birth and that he was willing to bet his medical license on it. We strongly disagreed and got a second opinion. The baby was later vaginally birthed with zero complications. Time for him to turn in his medical license. Stay away!!!! You have been warned!!!
He's a fantastic Dr not one question I have ever goes unanswered by him. He takes his time with you explains if any of your levels are low if so why. Doesn't rush you out of the office and when you bring your other children if they are crying or fussing he even truss to get them calmed down honestly I look forward to seeing him at every visit and would recommend him to anyone hands down
