I like Dr. Smith's no nonsense approach to my care. She is very open with her opinions and I feel that she trusts me to understand her intentions when she shares her insights on treatments, meds, tests, the way her office is running, or anything related to my care. She's certainly not a hand-holding "there, there" provider, instead putting her efforts into addressing your plan and its outcomes.

I appreciate Dr. Smith's direct approach. She responds to my questions with good, sensible advice, all without condescension. I like that. No wasted time. Her manner is pleasant and professional with me. I have been her patient for several years.

Disrespectful, codescending, rude, poor bedside manner, doesn’t listen to patients or answer questions! I was mortified at how she treated my father and i am a registered nurse myself.

Dr. Smith is all business which I like a lot! You always know where you stand and always get straight answers. She has been instrumental in finding issues for both my husband and my dad and I admire her work ethic. She has on 3 occasions called in the evening telling us that she has been thinking about our cases and has ordered additional testing based on her 'thoughts' that have been helpful in finding the cause of the issues. I would HIGHLY recommend her.
