23/11/13 5 5 5 5 Kevin Smith is the consumate Healer...Professional, kind, compassionate, knoweledgeable, approachable and THE BEST at what he does. I have had many pain procedures with Dr. Smith - Epidurals, trans-foraminals, trigger point, Occiptial Nerve Block and more. Each and EVERY time I experienced relief. He listens, he cares. He also treats my 93-year-old dad for Post-Herpetic Neuralgia - the aftermath of Shingles. This syndrome has no cure and no "textbook" treatments. But Pops comes away every time with a positive response - and a renewed determination to simply BE better. It is inspirational to see a medical professional take such a personal interest. If you can see this doctor, I encourage you to do so. I think you will be pleased.  Respond

06/02/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Smith diagnostic and analytical abilities are superlative. He is a superb anesthiologist and pain-management specialist who is able to most effectively treat and otherwise care for his patients and who is able to effectively collaborate with other physicians who are involved in other areas of patient care. Dr. Smith is among that increasingly rare breed of physicians who is doing exactly what he wanted to do when he set out to become a doctor--take care of patients so that they can lead better and more productive lives. Doctor Smith's love for and dedication to his profession and his patients is apparent in everything that he and his staff does. I recommend Dr. Smith to anyone who mentions back pain or chronic pain, or anyone who needs an anesthesiologist. He is the best.  Respond

06/02/13 5 5 5 5 Dr Smith sees all new patients himself. I was glad that the first time I meet my doctor wasn't right before a procedure. He spend time with me and answered all my questions. He is conservative but is experienced in all the new treatments. His success with treatment is better than most in the 90 percent. He is worth waiting to see but I didn't have to wait too long. His office got me in right away.
