Poor excuse for a Consulting Physician

Dr. Benn E. Smith is extremely condescending, having or showing a feeling of patronizing superiority. He downplays your condition of pain, saying "it's mostly in your head." Even, if it's only implied. And devalues the tests, themselves, while not following through with what was ask of him by your referring Physician. Don't let the smile fool you, it's not genuine. He will also slap you with a mental health diagnosis using it, as if it were a lie detector. He should be removed from the practice at MAYO CLINIC as he demeans their reputation. I have to wonder, if he is getting inducements to treat you less-than, who you are as a person.

One Star

Dr. Smith was the worst doctor I've ever met. I saw him on referral from my board certified neurologist for 3+ years of peripheral neuropathy with tests. After a full day work up at Mayo, whose techs had awful testing techniques, Dr Smith determined that the numbness and tingling and pain in both of my feet was "all in my head" and referred me to a psychologist. He dismissed my neurologist's 3 tests as "wrong". What a joke!! I was diagnosed last year with Lyme disease!! I was infected in 1995, I had a classic rash then but never tested. This was about 7 years before I saw Dr. Smith. Lyme disease causes nerve damage, including peripheral neuropathy. DO NOT SEE DR. BENN SMITH! He is a terrible excuse for a doctor, arrogant, self-righteous and does not listen or look at FACTS.
