Dr. Smithwick is a very down to Earth and easy going physician. He relates well and takes time to answer any and all questions. Staff is equally good to work with. My only suggestion would be to spruce up his office a bit...it is rather worn and dated.

An amazing and gifted physician who made me feel at ease from the moment I met him. A true blessing to the Jacksonville community.
