    Dr. Smith went above and beyond addressing my husband's concerns about his asthma. Besides a full medical check up, he took the time to bring my husband and I into our office to discuss ALL possible options. He was professional but charismatic and had a light sense of humor fitting to the situation. I would happily recommend him and return to his office.
