five stars!

I was having severe pain in my right shoulder and lack of movement for well over a year (and it was getting worse!). After seeing a few different doctors with no solutions and after months of recommended PT. I was almost disbelieving that I could be pain free with full movement again. Dr. Smith read my MRI and diagnosed me correctly the first time and I was on my way to a fast recovery. Dr. Smith's manor is intelligent and kind. I have great confidence in him. He was referred by 2 of my husbands co-workers, my sister and brother in law. All with shoulder, all with surgery and all good results. I recommend him and his fantastic staff and I will use him in the future with out hesitation.

He misdiagnosed my family member, spent no time with us or really listened. He never even ordered an x-ray taken of my family member's problem area, said it wasn't needed and that he could assure us surgery was never going to be necessary. Sent my family member to over a year of physical therapy to see if it could be a "possible issue" (He was speculating) which only made the issue worse. Finally we had enough and went to another doctor who did a thorough exam, took an xray and did immediate surgery. The situation/issue was finally diagnosed but was severe enough that my family member suffered long term issues because of the delay in diagnosis.
