I can say Dr Smith and his staff has done a really good job they look out for there patience. He is a wonderful person and he has a heart of gold. Dr Smith and his staff are amazing. I pray that my insurance will keep him listed always in forevery. But its hard to say. Because they change so much we just never know. He will pray with you to get you thru what ever situation is going on at that time. Dr Townsend keep doing what you doing God has brought you a mighty long way. I been with you for 8 to 10 years and I love you like a brother. I have cried on your shoulders and you have given me some very strong encouraging words. You and your staff keep doing a fabulous job.

The doctor is great but his billing staff are morons. They keep sending me bills for doctor's services. I call them and they say they submitted the claims to insurance, but when I call the insurance, the insurance tells me they have not received claims. The billing staff will not verify insurance info with me to see if they have the right insurance info. I am seriously thinking about not going back to this doctor because of the issues I am having with the billing staff.

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr Smith and his staff. They are all amazing people who do such a fabulous job. Due to insurance changes the past two years I had to see other pain specialists. It was horrible. They were rude, and didn't care. Dr Smith makes the treatment so simple and easy and combined with the staff for me it's actually enjoyable. Charity

This doctor over books on appointments. Also was told that doctor is also doing rounds at the hospital. In my opinion do rounds before your scheduled appointments or after don't make patients wait for you. We are important too!
