I received no help from this Dr. He was rude and didn't care to hear about my medical history or current problems I was having. He dismissed me almost as soon as I walked into his office. I was there for Lyme disease and all he did was look at test I had from months before my visit and say, "I cant help you, you don't have Lyme". He ran no blood work or even cared enough to try to figure out why I wasn't well. He truly put me off from seeing Drs for a long time. I would NEVER recommend this man. Waste of time and money!
Was extremely disappointed with Dr. Smith. No compassion, dismissive, and didn't want to hear what my history of what I was there for - Lyme disease. Did not appear knoweledgeable enough for this infectious disease. No real medical history taken, i.e, what medications do I take. Would not return EVER!
I have been a patient of Dr. Smith's for 16 years. He is patient and caring and most importantly, he always allows you as much time as you need during a visit ... none of that rushing you in an out because patients are scheduled every 15 minutes! Even during off hours, he is there for you. Medically speaking, he has kept me alive and well. He is the best!
