Five Stars

My husband has multiple health issues including Parkinson's disease, a broken hip and severe leg pain. He sees many doctors and takes many medications. Dr Smookler took time with us and was willing to sort out the levels of health complications faced by my husband and by me as his caregiver. Finally a doctor who looks at the whole person in a context!
