Patient Comments (6)

Great Doctor and great person. His kindness and knowledge make him your first option if needed.
in Orange Park, FL |
Dr. SMITH is nothing but a well paid work comp Dr. that cares nothing at all about the patient only about the all mighty dollar, and yes, he gets paid well for saying whatever work comp wants him to say. I saw the man for about 10 minutes yet he says I'm okay to go back to work full time, even though a neurosurgeon Dr. Supplier said just a few months earlier that I could not and that surgery on my herniated discs would not help me as it is not a cure all.
in Eustis, FL |
I went for the first time today as a second opinion for work comp. He was okay, but he did not offer any treatments or recommendations to help me. They took a bunch of xrays and I did not get to see any of them or go over what he saw. He asked a few questions about my work related injury and I guess I'll come back on here to finish this review after getting a copy of his opinion.
in Apopka, FL |
Amazing bedside manner. Very compassionate and did a great job on my hand surgery. His staff in the back is also very knowledgeable. Highly recommend.
