Terrible. Just terrible. He told my fiancé something could be potentially wrong but he had to go on vacation for 3 weeks. That they would figure out what was wrong when he got back. So glad we didn't wait for you to get back Dr. Smith because my fiancé has cancer! !!

I had a saliva duct stone,Dr. Smith took it out with ease and I was on my way. I would highly recommend his professionalism in his field.

Dr. Smith was absolutely wonderful! He didn't make me wait very long before coming into the exam room. He made me feel comfortable and was very kind and personable. He took his time and I didn't get the impression he was rushing through my diagnosis so he could get to the next patient. I would definitely see him again, and I would recommend him to anyone. The staff was great, as well.
