I write this review in the hope that my family's experience with this office will not be repeated with another family. Dr. Smith diagnosed my elderly mother with inoperable, lung cancer from an x-ray & gave her the diagnosis OVER THE PHONE. She had never had cancer and had no obvious risk factors for cancer-this was a complete surprise. His excuse was he "wanted to get the ball rolling". Yes, she had cancer, it was advanced & going to take her life. However, a compassionate meeting in the doctor’s office with her family present to support her during those early hours of realization would have made an enormous difference in the mental and emotional quality of those last weeks of her life. Dr. Smith's office has never called to follow up on her condition, never called to discuss treatment or the fact she never returned to their office, and never acknowledged her death.
