Dr. Smiddy is nothing short of amazing. His professionalism is some of the best I've ever seen. He spent a great deal of time getting to know me and I didn't feel rushed or treated as just a number by him or his staff. I highly recommend Dr. Smiddy and his staff!

I would and will highly recommend him. Very easy to talk to and I really felt comfortable bringing up concerns that I had. His bedside manner is excellent, calmed my fears on my health concerns and confronted his concerns with my health with professionalism and humor. All in all I was so worried going into this appointment with a new doctor, now I feel like I found my doctor that truly cares for my wellbeing without the judgements.

My kind of doctor and I'm so glad I found a great primary care physician. I have moved across the country and had to change doctors several times, and I knew from the previous reviews that he seemed to be the right fit. Laid back, caring, thorough in questions while making it more of a two-way conversation. I felt very comfortable going through my history and discussing the future of my health. Staff was great, plenty of parking, and an overall great experience.

Dr. Smiddy was very personable and very thorough. He has a nice way in his approach and the team made me feel comfortable on my first visit. I like how he asked questions and presents a dialogue with getting to know you as an individual. The team helped me move from being very much nervous for my first visit to actually leaving feeling comfortable with knowing they are their for helping me as the patient.

Dr. Smiddy was excellent. When he asked questions, he told me the reason why he needed to know rather than expecting blind trust. Also, he followed up that session on the questions I had answered in my initial new patient form.

Dr. Smiddy gives you undivided attention, and is very, very thorough. So many physicians have too much on their plate, and rush seeing their patients, and I feel I will never see that with Dr. Smiddy. So glad I found all the positive reviews online through DocZoc & Healthgrades! They speak volumes!!

Wait Time

He was friendly enough the first visit, and his assistant is incredibly nice, but he and I disagreed on my course of treatment. I then suggested he speak to my specialist so we could discuss the different opinions and coordinate treatment - he flat out refused! He used derogatory words toward both the other doctor (based on his treatment recommendation) and made me feel so horrible that I left in tears. I have never gone back, and would never recommend his services to anyone. He is not open to ideas other than his own, he doesn't listen to the patient, and he is rude and dismissive. In addition, I asked for my records when I left, and gave up after 2 or 3 requests.
