I lived in Alabaster, AL for over 10 yrs then had to move to MS. I knew I wouldn’t ever find a good Dr like Dr Smitherman. He was always so patient and kind. He knew exactly what medicines I needed at each visit.

Dr. Smitherman is friendly, courteous and willing to listen to your problems. While the office staff is helpful, they often times code my visits incorrectly which causes the insurance claims to be rejected. Then I have to try to get things coordinated between the office and the insurance company.
