Ratings for Dr. Bruce M. Smith
Terrible experience at this clinic! And now they sent me 2 bills for another patient with same name over a year later! Say they're taking me to collections and billed my insurance. FRAUD! He did not help with my ear problem over a year ago, either. Argumentative and brusque, ready to usher me out the minute I came in. Hardly looked at my ears and made a diagnosis. I thought a specialist was supposed to be exactly that. Even the military doctors when I was a child did more testing than he does! Shame on him for calling himself a DOCTOR.
I have been using Afrin nosespray for 40 years. I have seen countless doctors in 6 states and had 3 surgeries. I could not breath through my nose and no one could help me. I found Dr. Smith online and was basically expecting the same reaction I had had with all the other doctors. I did not get that. Everything he had to say was new. I followed his instructions to the "t," all the while expecting to be pacing the floor all night with my sinuses feeling like a cement block. That did not happen. From that night on, I have been Afrin free. I cannot begin to express how grateful I am. I highly recommend Dr. Smith -- somebody who cares and is quite knowledgeable.
The worst experience I've ever had in a 71 year lifetime. Always angry, seems intent on humiliating the patient, blaming the patient,arguing with the patient. Sinus surgery did not solve problem. Dr. Smith impossible to deal with in treating ongoing problem needing ongoing treatment. I don't know about his medical skills. He is just impossible to take personally.
This doctor was half an hour late; I lost the hearing in one ear because the doctor didn't catch the painful symptom and badly swollen membrane in the ear which another doctor correctly diagnosed after the loss occurred. Got the bum's rush from this doctor, one of the very worst doctors I've ever encountered. Would strongly advise you to find another doctor.
