Dr. Smoot is very thorough with my health while I am with him. He knows what meds I am on overall, sometimes asking me if I'm taking a certain med a certain way and if I'm not he wants to know why. He has a very inviting personality and makes me feel as if he really cares about me as a person.

Dr. Smoot is the best! He is professional, very knowledgable, and so kind to and respectful of patients. He's very thorough and inspires confidence. I've been going to him for years, as has our daughter. Can't imagine going to anyone else. He has really helped me understand neuropathy and has prescribed exactly what I needed for pain management.

Dr Smoot is a neurologist so is not my primary care doctor so would not be the one I'd call for regular health needs but seems to care about and know more about my health than any other of my doctors. He is very interested in my and my wife's input as to how I am functioning and and chages we notice. I am 100% happy to have him as one of my doctors.

Dr. Smoot is a very warm, caring physician and has been of great help to me with my MS and nerve pain and has ordered an MRI to find out more about my pain. When he says he will call in 2 weeks to check on my progress - the call is ALWAYS made - quite unusual
