I saw Dr Smith three times for a knee injury, a torn tendon. I completed Physical Therapy Twice with not much improvement. I gave me shots twice. Said the tear in the tendon was never large & surgery wasn’t warranted, then when it flared back up said I need to go to another knee orthopedic so they could scope it. Not very happy that I spent loads of money on PT co-pays, twice, & then to find out he wouldnt even do the knee surgery to begin with.

This Doctor was very friendly and Super down to earth. He is easy to talk to and seems to really hear what I am telling him about my health problems. You can tell he is working out how my body feels with my on paper reports and X-Rays. I felt he was straight forwarder with me with OUT being a jerk. He not only addressed what I need to do..but what I have tried so we could get my body working properly. For the first time in years I am hopeful about my condition. Thank YOU ,Doc!

As a surgeon Dr.Smith was great. He knows exactly what he was doing and took great care of my daughter's injury and made sure she healing properly. But as for his bedside manner, he was short with his responses and acted as if it was a burden to answer my question. And was always in a hurry to leave.

Dr. Smith was very rushed in the exam room and dismissed some concerns I had related to my injury. He appeared competent but demonstrated a poor bedside manner.
