Dr. Charles Smith is a jack*ss. I cannot believe I will be writing a 400 dollar check for my recent visit. My husband accompanied me and we were both astonished at his horrible attitude and lack of care. I had been treated for MS in the Seattle area for several years and was taking Copaxone for the previous 3 years. I found him after moving home to San Diego and for some inexplicable reason, he said he would not treat me or prescribe any MS medication until I could prove to him I had MS since the MRI he ordered showed previous lesions had lightened. Despite that - he was sure to do a battery of other in-office tests so he could charge me for a level 4 office visit. Yes, we are on to you. Stay away from this physician. Even my new doc who shall remain anonymous has implied he is not at all surprised!

I not only admire Dr. Charles Smith, but I followed him from one location to another to have him oversee my health needs. It's worth it to me to drive for over an hour now simply to know I'm in excellent care due to his expertise and skills.

Seemed preoccupied with other things....certainly being a patient of his was not HIS top priority. His certificates plastered on his wall say he's good. His actions speak louder. Not impressed. Will seek further help elsewhere.
