I'm so impressed by your experience with your patients, because you care about your patients. Thank you so much for your helping me out. It's so easy to make a appointment when I needed to get in. You do take care of every single patients. Not every other doctors don't care of patients, but you do take care of them, thank you so much.

Dr Smith was very meticulous in reading my chart and asking questions which led to more questions based on my responses. He made recommendations and observations that were more in depth than anyone had ever done previously. He really delved into my health history. I was very impressed with his level of detail and attention.
