Dr Smith always does what she is supposed to do. I'm happy with her. when I checked into her office on [...], the receptionist who "helped" me check in was very unpleasant person to deal with. [...] I shared my experience with Dr Smith's medical assistant. I must say there are so many other people out there who are looking for jobs who would appreciate having a job than this lady at Dr Smith's office's front desk.

This was my first visit to Dr. Smith and I liked her very much tho I was hoping to have one dr and not have to go to a pain clinic but I respect her wishes to avoid prescribing that and am being seen at a pain clinic for that care. Dr. Smith seemed very caring and I could tell she listened to what I was saying.

Dr. Megan Smith is an outstanding provider. I felt respect and compassion from her. She listened to all of my concerns and questions, and made great recommendations on how to move forward with good health. She went beyond by spending a few minutes to learn a little more about my personal family life.

As with all doctors, mine is quite busy and pretty quick with appointments. Sometimes, I feel like I might not have been able to discuss my health as thoroughly as I would like, but, in retrospect, the doctor gives me appropriate time and attention. She is very friendly and puts me at ease.
