    I just got back from dr Smith. I was very pleased. The staff was wonderful. Dr. Smith took the time to talk to and explained to me in laymen terms gave me a report for dr berrin. He took an X-Ray and explained the xray to me. Gave me a cortisone injection he said I can get a injection 4 to 6 months if needed. I definitely would go back and recommend to family and friends. Been to several orthopedics and no one was as nice to me like dr. Smith.

    Dr. Smith has been treating my family for over 22 years. Between my children's various broken bones, my mother-in-laws broken ankle, and my hip and back issues, he has always taken care of us. He brings you right in if you have an emergency, you never wait to see him, his staff is very courteous, and he treats you as if you are the only patient he has. He is very professional, answers all of your questions, has a great bedside manner. I would definitely recommend him.

    I saw Dr. Smith a few days ago for a pain in my shoulder. He meticulously read through my medical history and explained the two different injuries I had in my shoulder. He explained that the pain and discomfort I was having today was unrelated to a larger issue I have. He discussed that a cortisone shot would probably be very helpful for this problem. After receiving the shot my shoulder felt immediately better. A few day have passed and I feel terrific! Thank you Dr. Smith!!!

    Broken Ankle: He had a terrible bed side manner. He man handled my leg while cutting off the splint and recasting me. He was dismissive at every turn. When I had questions and concerns about surgery his demeanor suggested that he felt I was wasting his time with my questions. When the new caste was finally on he said he'd be right back to do a final check and then disappeared. Finally, I said that it felt too loose and that I could still MOVE MY ANKLE he insisted the caste was fine. Awful Doctor

    Dr. Smith insisted that there is nothing wrong with my knee even after seeing my MRI results! the pain was unbearable , he saw me limping as I was not able to put any weight on my leg I received multiple injections wich did not help !!! mri stated very clearly that i had torn miniscus but he still insisted there was nothing wrong with my knee . I went to see 2 other doctors for 2nd opinion and both agree with mri readings and suggested surgery! i suffered needlesly for3months ! horrible expnce

    Dr. Smith dismissed my diagnosis from my previous Dr, which I only left because he did not take my new health insurance. He only ordered an MRI because I told him I wanted one, and then didn't even read the results until have way through of my visit to go over the results. He stated that I didn't have a labral tear and all I needed was physical therapy, when in fact I have two of them, and it's degenerative. It was a waste of my time and would not recommend him to anyone I know.
