Terrible , I am 23 years old and any issue and symptoms I brought up that felt I was having he didn't take serious at all. I felt that he wants just money and dosent actually care about what the patient has to say.thoughtout the exam I didn't even feel comfor telling him anything. Went there once to see him and I changed my doctor. If your looking for someone to listen and care about your symptoms I do NOT recomed dr.small

If I could give Dr. Small less then one star I would. This man is extremely condescending, disrespectful, impolite, and rude. He never takes his patients concerns seriously and always downplays their illnesses. I came to him with strep throat, which I have had in the past and asked for antibiotics and he shrugged it off as a simple cold. I had very painful swallowing, swollen lymph nodes, and white spots all over my tonsils. Turns out it was indeed strep. DO NOT go to him, you will regret it.

Dr. Small lacks compassion, has a skeptical nature, and seems profit oriented rather than patient care. He always seems like he doesn't believe me.
