    How was your appointment with Dr. Smith?

    Apr 11, 2022
    I’m a massage therapist, so when I needed surgery, my only choice was Dr. Smith. He is an excellent doctor with great bedside manner and takes time to answer all questions. Over my 20+ years as a LMT, he has earned my respect and trust and would recommend him to any of my colleagues and friends.
