Have you seen Dr. Michael Smitherman?
June 26th, 2017Was very impressed!
Dr. Smitherman and his staff were extremely friendly and caring. I felt I was "heard", and my problems were addressed. Dr. Smitherman was very thorough with his questions and exam. He took a lot of time with me. He seemed to really care. The whole visit was impressive, from the time I walked in the door.

I have the same experience with Smitherman. This guy is supposed to be an expert on fibro and I have seen him for several years only for him to keep prescribing more and more drugs that have terrible side effects. I seriously loath going to him. I've tried the alternative medicines only to get his condenseding attitude. He say do what I say or you won't get better. Well, I have done everything he has said including exercise (lost 50 lbs and now I'm rail thin) and am worse off now. He shows absolutely no compassion and after several years, I finally asked him for my records and referral to another doctor.

He does down time with me. He is very prompt. I have my post it note with bullet points for him to address. I believe this is helpful for any doctor. My Psoriatic Arthritis at present is joint swelling. On and off meds and still swollen. I just want symptom relief. I wish Dr. SMItherman would say any other questions, but he is out the door and gone. I end up calling or sending messages via the portal. Guess this isn't working.

January 22nd, 2016Would NOT recommend!
Not compassionate, not empathetic, not a good listener and I did not feel he had even the slightest grasp of how I was feeling and what my symptoms were before he started pushing medications on me....muscle relaxers, Lyrica, etc that I was not comfortable taking without fully understanding what exactly they would do for my symptoms. He never explained to me what fibromyalgia even is, how it works and why these medications would be best to take. He did not have a long term game plan on how to make me feel better...just kept adding meds. I left his office in tears after he told me, "I can't help you unless you take this medication." I responded that I wasn't comfortable taking it, to which he responded, "then you can see a psychiatrist or would you rather sit here at talk to me for 30 minutes?" WHAT?!!? I will NEVER go back to see this doctor and would NEVER recommend him to another human being.

August 27th, 2015The rudest Dr. I have ever dealt with. Just horrible. Rushes in and out and my head spins. I need medicine and can get answers on when or how my humira will be delivered Don't get call backs. Condescendin, arrogant, and rude. I have never had a problem with a Dr. In my life. EVER! DO NOT go to this man. I really would like to know how he could possibly gat 1 good review. The promptness of apt is very good. Otherwise just horrible. He forgot to send me for bloodwork today because he was mad as I was not happy. Also, I am the easiest person in the world to get along with. EXCEPT when someone displays this kind of behavior!!!! Can't stand him

May 14th, 2015Second Opinion Turns into Primary Specialist
Needing a second opinion, I made an appointment with the doctor. This will be my only negative: the first available was weeks out, but I took it. During the appointment, the doctor listened to all details and responded thoroughly. I was actually surprised how much time he spent with me. The service was so outstanding, I will switch from my current specialist and use Dr. Smitherman.
