01/05/14 4 3 5 5 Without a word of a lie this man is Yoda, Definatly a master of his craft. I dread the day that he retires as he is the only person to ever fix my back pain since the world's greatest physio-therapist, David Lamb, passed. David was also a patient of Doc Smith. He is the first chiro that I ever went to who wanted to help you and not get you on a "program" I see him only when I am in pain and he usually fixes me with one treatment. Never any pressure to keep coming back.  Respond

02/06/11 3 3 1 2 Unfortunately for me, he made my back/spine worse. It took 2 other chiropractors and 5 yrs later until I had some semblance of health. He was a very nice person though.  Respond

12/07/10 5 1 5 5 As far as I am concerned Dr. Smith is the best ever. I have been going to him for 20 years and he has kept me out of the operating room. Now only once or twice a year treatment. Definately worth the wait, he cares for all. Take a good book with you or a hand held game. God Bless you Lyle Smith!!!  Respond

26/10/09 5 2 5 5 You will wait later than your appointment time, sometimes by an hour or more when it's busy. On the other hand, he is a GREAT chiropractor - most others yielded temporary relief for a few days for me, but Dr. Smith will feel, re-feel, check, feel, and then make a couple of simple adjustments that are lasting, and effective. He also works hours that would kill some people - he always seems to be available, even on weekends when most chiros are closed. He's extremely dedicated to his work.

10/03/07 5 1 1 This man is crazy - pushing far too many people in far too many rooms - not fully examining before treating - I would never refer my friends to him!  Respond

10/03/07 1 5 5 Be prepared to wait... but the treatment is second to none! He is a fantastic chiropractor and the reason you wait is because he just can't say NO to anyone. If you are hurting he will get you in somehow. The man is there horrendously long hours I really don't know how he does it. He has kept me out of the operating room for years now. I was supposed to have surgery but he can keep me relatively pain free and able to move without cutting. I couldn't say enough good things about this doc. He is extraordinary!
