We had previous experience with Dr. Smith when he saved my mother's life in 2012. so when he said my husband must have surgery we totally trusted his advise even tho my husband had neck surgery 15 years ago with a DIFFERENT doctor and it went terrible. It was apparent from as early as the recovery room that Dr. smith had used EXTREME care while he corrected the problem without causing damage to the neck . My husband's recovery has been completely wonderful We were so blessed to have Dr. Smith

Dr. Steven Smith & Kyle Moser screwed up my decompression surgery leaving me with multiple severe nerve damage problems causing me lifelong permanent disabilities & extreme pain. Then they basically left me completely hanging with nothing & no hope & no quality of life without any care. They are strictly cutters & after that they pretty much want nothing to do with you, unless they can cut you up some more.

In 3.5 months of "care" after he diagnosed two fractures in my C-7 vertebra in the emergency room, Dr. Smith met with me once and only once. He had not ordered the proper CT scan to tell whether one of the fractures had healed after 5 weeks. (It had not.) Commenting that I probably did not want to keep coming in (true), he said that he would telephone with results and recommendations. He never did. I had to telephone his office repeatedly and was able only to speak to a receptionist.
