Dr. Neil D Smith has the following 2 specialties

  • Gastroenterology

    A gastroenterologist is a specialist in diagnosis and treatment of conditions involving the digestive/gastrointestinal (GI) tract. These doctors are experts on how food moves through the digestive system and is chemically broken down, with nutrients being absorbed and waste excreted. You might see this kind of doctor if you are experiencing any number of stomach issues, some of which might be severe diarrhea, irritable bowel syndrome, hemorrhoids, ulcers, acid reflux, Crohn's disease and more.

  • Internal Medicine

    An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
    These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
    In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Excellent doctor. Spends a lot of time explaining. Very thorough. Takes an excellent history which is 90% of the diagnosis. Seems genuinely interested in his patients. Would recommend him highly to anyone. overall rating 5

One Star

Dr Smith is a nice person. His diagnosis methodology is the routine of using standard tests starting at the "A's" and keep going toward "Z" until the right one triggers a result of interest. It might be better if the Dr would put some thought in before the battery of tests based on the symptoms and eliminate some tests that aren't necessary nor have any bearing to the symptoms exhibited. I've been seeing him for over a year and we still don't have a diagnosis. Options are very/too limited here in midcoast Maine. That said, he probably has too many people to see to spend the needed amount of time with patients. The receptionist is not very professional and I'm surprised she is in that line of work, especially for a doctor's office.

Very Dissatisfied

Dr. Smith ordered tests and never told me the results. I found out the results were very abnormal when I saw another GI doctor for a second opinion. If Dr. Smith was operating under a totally different assumption that never took into account the results of the testing he ordered.
