Ratings for Dr. Vinson A. Smith
I went to this guy because I wanted to find out just what was wrong with my hip. I had been going to a pain clinic, was already addicted to narcotics after approx one year. Dr. smith said there wasn't anything really wrong with my hip, just "old age".. . he prescribed an exercise clinic and suggested strenuous adherence to the regimen. Turns out that, after going to another orthopaedic surgeon, I had no cartilage in my left hip - all the exercise Smith prescribed was actually aggravating the problem. Not only that, I was very honest about my addiction to the narcotics. Smith said he would help me dose down and get me off of them. Turns out that his 'dose-down' protocol meant no more pain meds ever, cold-turkey! These people are the polar opposites of your traditional pain clinic and will only prescribe narcotics under the direst of situations. Lastly, their front office girl had the utter gall to fight with me over the bill after the mis-diagnosis. These people are nuts!
