Ratings for Dr. Erica L. Smith
Love love love doctor Smith. Had and emergency surgery last year at the age of 20 to stop bleeding of one of my ovaries from a cyst hemorrhage. I had never met her before but she was the OB on call and handled my situation, which we were unsure of at first, perfectly. Very kind and lots of knowledge. Sad I moved from Cache Valley, would love to have continued seeing her.
Dr.Smith has been my OBGYN for over 3 years. She has been great time up until now. I visited her due to my ovary constantly twitching and hurting on a regular basis. She had an ultrasound done, found scarring on my ovary, and did nothing about it. She continued to blame all of my problems simply on me being "thin". I went to a second doctor outside of Logan to find that I in fact have endometriosis. I would not recommend her to anyone who is having serious issues with their lady parts, as she simply does not have the knowledge.
I first went to Erica in 2013. She is a very nice doctor but when it comes to her knowledge on gynecological matters, she is not knowledgeable in the slightest. I've suffered with painful periods my whole life and have tried every birth control option out there. Each birth control had the same effect on me. I would get severely suicidal. I had my tubes tied by her in 2013 along with an exploratory laparoscopy to search for endometriosis. She proceeded to tell me she found no endometriosis and that the pain was all in my head and suggested I get on physcuatric meds. I continued to have painful periods that got worse. I went back to see her because the pain was debilitating and she tried to push lupron on me after knowing how hormones effect me. That's when I went to get a second opinion by an endometriosis specialist. Dr. Jeff arrington performed a second laparoscopy on me and sure enough, he found extensive endometriosis everywhere. I don't recommend this doctor to anyone.
Dr. Smith is very nice and personable... but she initially missed an ovarian cyst the size of a (softball or small grapefruit) that was pushing against my uterus in my pre-marital palpation exam. So I will not be returning to Dr. Smith... Nice gal, but an incompetent OBGYN in my case.
