Dr Smith was not very attentive and focused on this patient. Gave him a CT Scan but he couldn't look at it while I was there because it had to be "scrubbed". On the next visit it wasn't even brought up. When I gave it to him he said he wished he had the one previous to that as well but never asked me to get it. My last visit waited a half hour after my appt time for him to come in. When I went out looking for him he was in a conference room with a Med student. The focus was on the student durin

This Doctor is one of the most patient, caring and knowledgible Doctors I have ever dealt with. He stayed and explained at length many misdiagnoses I had been given,, He was really cares about his patients ,it was quite obvious and because of him and his time he took to study my profile/tests etc. I no longer need an inhaler I was on from other Drs for 8 years!!!I feel truly blessed that I was directed to not only DR Smith but also his assistant Jeanne Millett both excel in this field !TY all

Dr Smith was called in for a consult while I was in the hospital. I was on xarelto for DVT's and pulmunory embolism and was about to be released, even though I was not feeling well. Dr Smith researched my past and discovered that, due to other Issues, I was not digesting xarelto and put me on another blood thinner. He sat with me for over a half an hour an explained everything in detail. His bed side manner was kind, considerate, caring and informative. I would highly recommend him.
