Have you seen Dr. Robert Smitherman?

Dr. Smitherman is a shining example of what a doctor should be. He actually spends time talking to you not only about the issue at hand but also other areas to focus on to improve your overall health. He actually called me with my lab results and asked me if there were any other questions I had for him. Dr. Smitherman is a real class act, honest, caring and just overall exceptional at what he does.

I was a patient of Dr. Smitherman for several years before scheduling my annual physical which was just as routine as in years past. However this year I was overcharged for the visit. I have a high deductible insurance which allows me one annual physical but I must pay for any subsequent office appointments. During my physical the doctor asked me questions about my health history. Because I answered yes to certain past health issues he coded the visit as both a physical and an office visit which cost me an additional $105 even though I had not inquired nor was I treated for the past health issues. When I inquired about the charges to the staff I was told there was a sign posted on the wall stating any additional medial issues are chargeable. Perhaps the doctor should clarify his intent before asking probing questions so patience will know this may lead to additional charges.

Dr. Smitherman is an excellent doctor and his staff is awesome!! I never wait more than a couple of minutes to see him and I never feel like he is in a rush to get me out of the exam room. Dr. Smitherman is extremely knowledgable, component and takes the time to talk to his patients. I have been to countless doctors and nonee have come close to Dr. Smitherman's caring approach!!

March 8th, 2012Angry Doc.
Dr. Smitherman is knowledgeable enough, but he is very emotional - angrily emotional. That is not the way to act around the patient or his family as if they were his staff. In this survey you have to rate his staff along with him for an overall rating. The professionalism of the staff brings his average up and this is not deserved. They show to be better trained in professionalism and bedside manner than he is. It appears that maybe Dr. Smitherman has not matured enough to comport himself properly as of yet. I would feel awful if a review like this would linger on the internet for a long time because Dr Smitherman may have been way out of sorts recently or he may change and improve in time. I am at this time looking for another, wiser Internist for my family.
