Sure miss Dr Smith even though I had a 30 minute drive to Nashville. He was never reluctant to order special tests like some doctors are and wasn't a "just throw pharmaceuticals at them" kind of doctor. Dr. Smith was always very personable and not at all condescending like some are. I always felt like he spent whatever time was necessary to answer my questions and concerns.

best in 62 years

As a type 1 diabetic, 62 years old, I've seen a LOT of doctors in my lifetime. Dr. Smith is the first I am absolutely mourning the loss of, as his practice in Nashville closes. Smart, great diagnostician who really listens, treats his patients as intelligent partners in their care, gets to really know you as a person and even your family members. He is amazing and if I could persuade him to stay, I sure would.

Patient

Dr. Smith is the most caring, efficient,and professional Dr. I have ever had. I love him dearly. He will be missed sadly. I understand it time for his move but I'm not happy at all. He is rated 10 + in my book.

Excellent MD

Takes time to truly listen during the appointment. Takes time to give explanations of treatment and instructions to the patient.

I am quite pleased with Dr. Smith

I have just recently moved to Nashville and was lucky enough to have a friend refer me to Dr. Smith. I could not be more pleased. He is an excellent doctor and while I know his time with me is limited, he acts as if he has all the time in the world to spend with me. Never hurries. He now sees my wife and my mother. They are equally happy.
