Ratings for Dr. Gary L. Smoot
Dr. Smoot is awesome! He takes the time to explain the root cause of the pain and the best medical treatment in an effort to get you back to your normal health. He never pushed me to have invasive or expensive tests or procedures. His approach has worked well for me and I am grateful to him for taking this approach. I would highly recommend Dr. Smoot. I did not have the negative experience with his nurse Linda as stated in other comments. She is busy and gets through her portion of the visit quickly, which allows Dr. Smoot more time with his patients. She has always been friendly during my visits.
Dr. Smoot is an outstanding doctor who is thorough and has been able to help me on the road to recovery with my back pain over the last year and a half. His nurse Linda is not a nice, she is rude and has a poor bedside manner - I agree with the other post on her. Dr. Smoot would be straight 5 stars if he had a better nurse, he cares about his patients and he helped me when no other doctors could.
We LOVE Dr. Smoot. He's friendly and funny but also very serious about diagnosis and treatment. He very obviously knows what he's talking about. He goes into great detail about the patient's condition to help explain it all. Our only complaint is his assistant, Linda, who has the bedside manner of a prison guard. She's rude, argumentative and defensive when you ask questions. The staff rating would be a 5 if not for her.
Poor bedside manner. Direct matter of fact style lacking any personal empathy. Need facts but doctor unable to diagnose correctly and after 30 years you think the man could test reflexes correctly. Works for workers comp company not the patient. Dont let him come near you with a needle.
I wouldn't give him high marks for his bedside manner. He was pretty short with me and almost accusatory in his tone. He was able to help me identify the source of my pain but couldn't tell me how to resolve it. I doubt I will go back or send others to him.
Dr Smoot is a very knowledgable and caring MD . He has great insight and is very caring about is patient 's and their overall health . He helped me feel better . I appreciate him and his nurse they are wonderful and an assest to our community !!
