WEll I saw Dr Smith for a 2nd consult for a neck fusion...his bedside manner was horrible....so full of himself, arrogant...didn't even examine me, check my strength, nothing....he could have cared less I was there...Definitely WON'T be having him do any of my surgery! Go somewhere else!

He's the rudest Doctor I've ever met. In addition he said I definitely need an operation yet after getting a second (and third) opinion, I found that I did not need an operation. Definitely get a second opinion!
