this is the worst place I've been too. can't talk to anyone , no one call you back , if they do they just say I will call you back. but never do. in 1 month I called 7 times trying to get an appt. for an epidural. just gave up no one would call me. still don't know what's wrong had a mri, they just rushed me out . I did get to see the doctor one time. he could even set down and explain it to me. I stood at a machine and was told a few things. he didn't even has time to answer my questions. don't recommend this dr. at all
Dr Smith did a wonderful job on my back surgery, but I have suffered with something wrong that has put my life at a standstill, he was gonna inject my back in surgery and the hospital told me 7am, well I had been gone that day doing pre-op the OR called and said I had to be there at 5;30am, well I didn't hear this until 4;30am that morning it takes 2 hrs to get to the hospital, I had no choice but to cancel, I have been almost 2 eeeks trying to get someone to call me back to reschedule, the assistant in his office told me he would be ticked because I had to cancel, I don't understand why they just can't call me back
