I had an MRI which showed 2 herniated neck discs and severe pain in right arm and loss of use of my hand. She immediately zeroed in with electricity test and a type of ultra sound and diagnosed the pain was from a pinched ulnar nerve in my elbow and severe carpal tunnel. I was operated on and am recovering amazingly well. She is empathetic, listens to the patient even though her instincts are way ahead. She saved my arm, my dominant hand and my profession as an artist for 50 years.

Patience & Empathy

Dr. Smith is patient and empathetic to the pain you are experiencing. When doing a procedure (I've had a variety performed by her) she explains everything she is doing. Her knowledge of other potential diagnosis outside her specialty is impressive as is the calm, smooth manner in which she speaks and conducts herself during procedures. There is one thing you should know, immediate treatment and pain relief should not be expected. You need to work in conjunction with pain management but she is quick to schedule injections whenever possible. I wouldn't trust anyone except Dr. Smith to insert a needle between my vertebrae!
