Ratings for Dr. Keith D. Smith
If you have PCOS, avoid this doctor, he has a very old school approach. He will give you medications that were practiced in 1960's. My hormones were closely monitored, but never did an ultrasound or anythubg. When I switched to an advanced RE, he was surprised that I was on those meds, he immediately told me to stop them. And I got pregnant one the first cycle after trying the new oral medications (not injectables).
I misunderstood the cancellation policy as a new client and was treated rudely by the staff. In the end i have no issue paying the money and UNDERSTAND that a missed appointment is unfair to the Dr. and his staff, however, the staff could have shown some grace and empathy in explaining this instead of rubbing it in my face as to the situation being my fault. the approach they took was a defensive which was unnecessary and unpleasant.
I've been treated by Dr smith around 15 yrs. I was having hot flashes from hell and he immediately fixed me up. He also referred me to an amazing endocrine surgeon at M.D. Anderson and has probably saved my life by doing so. He wins the award for best bed side manner of any doctor I have had. Also wins the award for best listener and best humor.
Years ago Dr. Smith was described to me as the "Lion in the forest of obgyn's / endocronolgists". Indeed, he is. Caring, kind, great sense of humor, brilliant, responsive, thorough are just a few words that come to mind. Always smiling, he seems to love what he does. He spends ample time, answers questions and is never rushed. Simply put, when I leave I know I've seen the best of the best.
I've been seeing Dr.Smith for over twenty years now. He is the most wonderful, caring and thorough doctor that I have ever encountered. His sense of humor is grand and I've never once seen him anything but happy to be doing his job. He listens patiently, is very thoughtful with his reply and always explains anything I don't understand- and is happy to do it. I don't know what I'll do when he stops practicing medicine. It will surely be a great loss to me and to the patients that owe him so much. He's the best of the best in my opinion.
I love Dr. Smith. He's a fantastic doctor. I have been a patient for many years (being treated for hypothyroidism.) When I was pregnant, He carefully followed me during both pregnancies with constant testing of my low progesterone. His careful detail to attention and willingness to order tests when necessary saved both of my pregancies. I cannot thank him enough.
