What People Say About Dr. Valerie Small, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I switched to Dr. Small after reading great reviews on her and I was not pleased with her as my doctor. She rushed the appointment I had with her and she didn't let me ask any questions. I tried asking a question but she was already out the door. She is a very intelligent doctor and seems to know a great deal, but her bedside manner lacks. I felt like I wasn't given any time as a patient of hers, and she didn't want me challenging her diagnosis. I recently switched to a new doctor.

I think Dr.Small is fantastic. I find her to be professional yet warm and caring. I have been a patient for years and even though she has recently moved further away from me, I have remained her patient. She is extremely knowledgeable and has always been able to give me an answer for any problem I may be having. Anyone would be lucky to have her as their doctor!

The practice moved to a new location two months prior to my visit. In the new facility, the reception staff were poorly prepared to answer questions. No one knew what a Privacy Practice statement was or where to find one. The overall atmosphere was rather chaotic and frantic. Dr. Small had reviewed my history before meeting me, but then failed to ask even one question about any health concerns I might be having. She simply reviewed the history with me and did a brief exam.
