Professional

Dr Smith exudes confidence and was 100% on my problem. She takes the time to explain things to you and puts your mind at ease. Her care is as good as it can get from a Physician in my opinion. If more Physicians modeled themselves after Dr Smith, then Healthcare would be so much less stressful.

There should be more doctors like Dr. Rachael Smith

When I called for an appointment I was put in with not problem or fuss. Once I was there my wait time was so sort I didn't even get a chance to open the book I brought thinking I was going to be there for awhile. Once in the exam room my wait for Dr. Rachael Smith was even shorter. She was kid, understanding and explained everything she was doing and going to do to me in terms I truly understood and when she was done she asked if I had any questions and was truly concerned of my feelings and wanted to make sure I knew exactly what she was going to do and why. She walked me to her secretary whom was very pleasant and always smiling. Made me feel calm and safe. My whole experience at Dr. Rachael Smith's office from beginning to end was perfect. It's nice to leave a doctor's office feeling secure and safe with the choice I made. Thank you Dr. Rachael Smith and staff. We need more people like them, specially in time of worry and concern.
