Dr. Smith is one of the most attentative and thorough doctors I have met to date. He takes time to make sure that his patients understand what is going on, and answers all questions before ending the visit. He is very honest and forth coming with what he believes will and will not be helpful. The best part is that he treats his patients the way he would want his family members to be treated. He does not claim to know everything or have all the answers. What he does, is refuse to give up easily without exhausting every option possible. I love that he has a real heart and caring concerned spirit for his patients. I have never seen him rush in and out with a patient yet. Matter fact, I have seen him take the same type of time in other patient rooms that he does with my mother. I do not mind waiting a little longer for my appointments because I know that he is giving the same care and concern to his other patients that he gives to us. His office is never over crowded which lets me know that he is not one of those doctors that overbook their schedule and then run in and out of each room every 5 minutes.
I saw this cardiologist at Novant Health Heart and Vascular Institute. I wouldn't recommend him, although he does have good ears and stethoscope. My problems are many. One, he tried to rush the appointment and get me out. Two, he doesn't take your heart seriously. Three, he told me my diagnoses at the appointment but withheld it on the records. So yeah, I am puzzled by the last.
