Absolutely the worst doctor I have ever had to deal with. His staff is horrible. He told me my son's arm was healing perfectly and the bones aren't even close to touch or healing. Arm is not even close to straight. Will be contacting the stater medical board and an attorney!

Very disappointed and child suffers

This doctor has very poor knowledge of his job and does a very poor job. Son's ex rays showed bones still not connected after being reset. Was put in cast to finish healing. I'm no doctor, but how can bones grow back together if they are not connected. Further more we asked for records to go get a second opinion and were refused. Plus the woman on the phone got rude with my wife.

Do not let this man operate on you. I am on disability due to his fault. Go somewhere else. Local Dr's and nurses have verified this. Do your research and BEWARE!!!

Very poor bedside manner

Dr. Smith seems to do unneeded operations. Seems to like people in pain and does not listen to patients. My operation was, according to other Dr.s not the correct opoeration. Have had other medical professionals, including Dr.s say they dont know how he stays in business. Would not reccomend Dr. Smith to anyone whatsoever. BEWARE!!!!
