DR Smith and his whole staff are wonderful caring people that take the time to really listen to my concerns. I never have to wait for an appointment if I really need to be seen. I love the BSW portal to keep up with all the test results, appointment times, or just to ask a question they are always there for me just a few clicks away. Thank you for having doctors like Doctor Smith
