    How was your appointment with Dr. Smith III?

    Aug 02, 2019
    Dr. Jackson Smith has been my daughter's physician since she was nearly a day old. We are now at 22 1/2 years. He has always been very compassionate, takes time with us during her appointments, he calls us himself with any issues based on her labs & medication dosing, and he calls her "one of his kids". He literally has been entrusted with my daughter's life which he has done an excellent job balancing her growth related to medication dosing, and unwanted side effects. We see him 3 times a year now after navigating through her physical growth into an adult. He has always kept up with her school performance, extracurricular activities and life events. I have told him that he is not allowed to retire!
