I always get great care from Dr. Smucker. I also am able to ask him a question on "my chart" messages which he always answers, and I really appreciate that.

It truly seems that what is being examined is the computer's information; more time during the visit is spent by the doctor reading the PC info. He did listen to my heart, but . . . . . again, the PC was truly more focused upon.

Dr. Smucker's manner can sometimes appear to be abrupt or dismissive, or overly-focused on entering info in the computer instead of focusing on the patient. I see past that to his concern for my well-being, and appreciate how he listens. He takes just as much time as needed to cover my questions.

due to medical field, had to choose new insurance policy.so being a new patient I had hard getting an appointment before running out of prescriptions I have taken for years. One prescription was wrong and I ended up with 1/2 of one (15 days) and the insurance will not fill the rest of the month supply until it is gone!
