Should not practice medicine!

I'm very disappointed with Dr. Herbert Smitherman's conduct. Our son has informed us that he has made inappropriate sexual jokes and or requests. Sexual advances towards his male patients and students should NOT be acceptable. He has no ethics and should not practice medicine.

Thorough, well informed on current trends, articulate

He is articulate but not condescending. He is respectful of the patient and methodically responds to questions. It is clear that he is knowledgeable of the field and makes sure that his patient understands options in treatment. Well read.
