Dr. Smith is the best ENT around. He has treated me and two of my children. He is caring, explains the procedures thoroughly - even to children in a way that sets them at ease, he prays for his patients and his results have been astounding. He is the best!!!

Dr. Smith was very professional. Excellent bed side manners and explained everything in great detail with what was going on with my daughter and her ear issues. He performed excellently with my daughter's tube placement.i would highly recommend him to anyone!

Could not recommend
Dr. Smith came highly recommended so that just added to the surprise and disappointment of my experience. I am not someone that frequents a Dr., so by the time I actually make an appointment I'm pretty desperate to get a professional opinion. When he finally came into the room I was briefly trying to describe some of my symptoms. He started naming multiple things we could we could test and do. I was a little confused if he meant that day or over time. He pulled an instrument out and said he would be running it up my nose and down my throat. When I asked , "what does this check for again,". He looked at me and said , " you are frustrating!" I was in such shock! He had just rattled off about 4 different things he wanted to do , I was just verifying what this particular one did. I'm sure he's not phased by running tubes up noses and down throats but it was new to me. His bedside manner was appalling to me. He was rude and condescending. I had tears after the procedure. ( honestly it was a combination of eyes watering from running the tube up my nose and his mannerisms.) His consoling consisted of ,"you need to relax, you just make things worse." He ordered multiple tests that I honestly did not do. I was so upset when I walked out I was in no condition to go have anything ran. I will walk around clearing my throat for the next 40 years before I subject myself to him again. I am sure Dr. Smith, may be capable in his field and remains to have a good medical standing, however I was not able to get to that point with him. Hours after my appointment I was still dumbfounded of what had taken place. I just kept thinking if he was that cold and rude to an adult I can not imagine ever taking one of my children to him! To sum up my personal experience with him in one word would be "horrible". In his defense perhaps I got him on a bad day and he would be what someone is looking for . I just wish I had been prepared for what his personality and demeanor was going to be walking in.
