He really cares about the wellbeing of his patients..He is attentive and don't get all medical terminology on you...lol has the best candy jar in the world...
Dr. Smith is very knowledgeable and professional. He was very attentive and provided me with a very thorough examination. However,I almost left after my timely arrival because the receptionist was unprofessional and rude. She didn't greet me when I entered, so I decided to sign in until she was ready. While signing in, she began speaking to a patient who was exiting , and as I laid the pen on the clipboard I hear "What time is your appointment?", assuming she was still speaking to the male patient, I continued to turn around. This time she repeated herself with an even nastier tone than before. I turned around and asked if she was addressing me and she stared at me blankly. I then explained that I was unaware to whom she was speaking and she looked at me and said " Ok." From that point on she denied the ability to access my documentation resulting in me completing the paperwork that was already completed and she printed an incorrect appointment date. When I corrected her about the date , and explained that someone from the office contacted me a few days ago verifying all of my information, she became irate and agitated. Thankfully, Zocdoc contacted me for support and informed me that my paperwork was printed from their website days earlier- so... I wasn't mistaken. I was very disappointed with her nasty disposition and overall demeanor. I can only suggest that Dr. Smith is more selective in hiring front desk personnel. I really don't feel comfortable with her being responsible for handling my medical information. I'll definitely have to follow-up with my insurance company to make sure there are no "accidental errors" on my billing statement.
I thought treating a painful corn would be a simple procedure of removing the corn to relieve the pressure. Instead, Dr. Smith recommended surgery to cut into the bone to straighten the toe, thus correcting the problem to prevent future corn formations. After discussing this with my PCP, we agree that surgery is not a good solution for me at this time.
My visit went very well. He was very professional and informative.
The office was dark, dingy and OLD, not welcoming at all. He asked that you pay upfront if you have not met your deductible. My appointment was for 1:00p and then changed to 1:15p and he still didn't make it to the office until 1:30p. His answers to my questions changed once it was challenged.
Wait was a little long but his pleasant manner was very good. Professional!!!

While waiting a current patient told me she has been a patient of Dr.Smith for over 16 years; and he was the best doctor she ever had. Dr. Smith was knowledgeable, efficient and timely.

My visit was just great. The doctor has a great bedside manner and eased my concerns about my foot problems.Very professional.
I was referred to Dr Smith by my primary care doctor. After an hour wait in the waiting room, I never did see Dr Smith. I saw another physician who ordered orthodic supports for my shoes and a night splint. Their office had run out of both of these items. They said they will call me when they get more supplies. On the way home, I received a voicemail message from the office saying to call. When I called right back less than 2 minutes later, their answering service picked up and did not know if anyone was in their office or not. Very unprofessional!!!!!
He was very professional and great to talk to and the office staff was very friendly and professional also.
Dr. Smith and his staff were great. They got me in and out of the office in great time. He spent the time to address all my concerns which was greatly appreciated.
