I was able to book an emergency visit very last minute (I wanted an ENT to check out my ears before a flight). It was so convenient to be able to schedule an appointment the night before and complete all of my insurance and medical paperwork online before I arrived. Dr. Smith saw me promptly and gave me great advice to deal with the ear issues I had been having. The office is a bit like stepping back in a time machine - from the Doctor's mirrored headband to the old-school microscopes. Overall, staff was friendly and knowledgable, and I was relieved to find a last-minute appointment availability.

There was no one before me so I didn't have to wait. Dr. Smith was very helpful and so nice. He answered every question I had and made me feel comfortable. The woman at the front desk who checked me in was also very pleasant and I enjoyed talking to her too. I definitely recommend seeing Dr. Smith!

Dr. Smith was great. He's very old-school and took the time to go over not just my symptoms in detial, but my recent and past history to put together a complete picture of what's ailing me, why and how best to treat and cope with it. I went to him initially as a second opinion for myrian symptoms I was experiencing and I'm incredibly thankful I saw him. I'd absolutely recommend Dr. Smith to anyone in need of an ENT.

I would not recommend using Roger Smith's office, because they do not accept Cards, only cash or check. Are we still living in the 20th century?!? The best standard procedure of paying they have set up is they mail me the bill about a month after my visit, I then write them a check and mail it back to them. Then they mail me back a receipt. I take that receipt and mail it to my Health Savings Account provider. All of this took about 5 calls to figure out and will probably take a few more months until everything gets sorted out. I will not be back until they update their payment system. This is madness!

roger and his coworker at the front desk were both amazing. They were sweet, had a great sense of humor, and immediately addressed my health issue. They even remembered the person that recommended me to them in the first place! Great quality for two people who see so many faces each day. I went in yesterday and I feel better already.

Doctor Smith has a great bedside manner, is gentle, and explained every procedure and thing he was doing during the examination. He took the time to answer all of my questions in a straightforward and easy to understand style. I could tell he was listening to me carefully and was very patient. I never felt rushed or like he took any short-cuts. Really great doctor that I wouldn't hesitate to see again!

I thought I was in a time warp when I came in and the secretary was using a typewriter (!!!) and listening to conservative talk radio, bolstered by the fact that Dr. Smith came in wearing one of those shiny disks on his head. "What year is this?" I thought. Then when he treated me, he knew exactly what was wrong, and communicated this and the course of treatment clearly, thoroughly, and expertly (as far as I could tell), and I understood why he had so many five star reviews. Great staff, great doctor, A+

Be ready for a travel into time. Yes, he wore one of those reflective mirror on the head, and her secretary uses a type writer. As you can expect, no credit card payment possible. Take cash or checks with you. Other than that he explained to me in details his diagnosis and was very professional.
