Patient Comments (1)
in Delmar, NY |
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.
