Dr. Smith is a wonderful doctor. She is caring, attentive, and welcoming. I feel as if she genuinely cares about my health and never treats me as if I\'m just another chart or merely an appointment.

I felt absolutely comfortable with Dr Smith and confident that she was concerned and very willing to address my health issues. She seemed very knowledgeable, competent, and made my initial visit with her and very positive! I am very glad that I made the decision to go see her, after my former doctor that I had been seeing for a number of years left BSW in April 2017.

Dr White listened carefully as I described my symptoms and showed concern. Dr White suggested that I get to the hospital immediately for chest pain and other symptoms that might indicate and ongoing heart attack. she stayed with me until EMTs arrived and provided emergency personnel with her concerns surrounding my symptoms. She the most knowledgeable and caring doctor I have come in contact with in all my years being a Scott & White patient. Dr White\'s communication skills are beyond impeccable. I would recommend her to friends and family. My visit was at the walk in clinic at the Central location in Georgetown, therefore an appointment was not needed but I believe it does address the issue of some delay. front desk personnel, nurses assistants, were caring and professional, I cannot say enough about my satisfaction during the visit.

Dr. Smith was very sensitive to medications to prescribe to an adult who is 80 years young. She did not want to overdo the allergy medication, which seems to work adequately. She advised me to follow up with my primary care physician.
