Dr. Smith was great! My concern was dealt with quickly and I was even given additional information about treating my condition that I wasn't aware existed. He was very polite and the office was very clean. Staff was friendly and thewait wasn't more than 15 minutes past the appt. time.

I came in for an annual skin exam and it was the shortest one I've ever had. He barely looked me over, found a "spot" to biopsy, and lectured me about how much sun damage I have. He then told methat I have dandruff, gave me a script for a cream and told me to come back in 2 months. The whole thing took 5 minutes. I felt like he wasn't taking it very seriously and I will probably not be back in his office.

Dr. Smith seems like a good doctor, but doesn't give you the time or attention needed during a first time appointment. He was riffling off questions before I could even put my shirt back on, and didn't seem to care tohear about any previous treatments or prescriptions I had tried in the past. Like a typical Derm, he was in and out of my room in about 3 - 4 minutes. Maybe I caught him at a bad time in the morning.. I don't know. His office didn't seem that busy, so I don't know what the rush was about.

He was quick and efficient!!! Had lots of suggestions, did way more than I had expected. Usually you see any dr. And you get to address only two concerns, not with dr Smith. He kept making sure I didn't have anythingelse, and asked in a very nice way. I have already shared his information today.

My appointment is a blur. Dr. Smith came into the room, I am pretty sure he shook my hand hello, but not totally sure. I told him about my jawline breakouts and that I just needed another Onexton prescription (my previousdermo is no longer covered by my insurance). He said we should try something else (don't remember name). I told him I had already tried that and it didn't work. He told me to try it in addition to antibiotic pills. Then he was about to leave the room when I remembered I was also there for him to check a suspicious mole growing on side of my nose. He was moving so fast, I almost forgot! He looked at it and all he said was that if I wanted to get it cut off to check it, I would have to go to a plastic surgeon. Nothing about whether or not it might cancer. Everything happened so fast, he left the room and I thought to myself, What just happened? What did he tell me to do/not do? It was seriously a blur. He could not get in/out of the room fast enough. He had the bedside manner of a flea AND did not prescribe me the meds I asked for, but instead chose to give me a med that I already said did not work, and was putting me on antibiotic pills! When I went to the pharmacy, I realized I did not want to go on antibiotics for my face, especially when I knew Onexton worked without antibiotic AND the medication he prescribed was not covered by my insurance, so I did not fill the antibiotic nor the cream. Then I proceeded to call Dr. Smith's staff and left a voice mail stating that I wanted an Onexton prescription not once, not twice, but THREE times before they called me back! HORRIBLE bedside manner by the doctor, worse I've ever had, and HORRIBLE response time by the office staff. I will never go back, nor recommend him to anyone. He needs to get over himself and check his ego.

Dr. Smith had a very pleasant assistant who asked me about the purpose of my visit. The Doctor was very prompt, fast, and answered all my questions. I basically had the same symptoms I had in CA a few years agowhere Kaiser HMO did absolutely NOTHING to treat my pre-cancerous "sun spots." Dr. Smith treated me "on the spot," and it didn't hurt "very much. The receptionist at the Doctor's office was very pleasant and efficient. I might add that I probably "saved time" by making my appointment on-line through zoo.doc in which I chose the appt. times. Everything at his office appeared to be efficient, knowledgeable, helpful, and thorough.

There was quite a few patients on Monday when I went in for first visit. I had filled out my paperwork but thoughtlessly in an app on iPad. In hindsight I should've printed the forms before leaving my home, not becausethe office required this extra step but because I hate filling out patient paperwork by hand. We could not get the in app forms on my iPad into the hands of the front desk tech. I was given the forms to fill in then they had to input my info in between check in and out other patients So I waited about 30 min ...honestly I would've waited that twice over without pause to be seen by Dr Smith. HE CARES He was thorough, compassionate, and very considerate.
