    Like I stated, I think it's too early to rate the provider. I've only spent an hour w/him. For right now 100% satisfied.

    Dr. Daniel Smith is excellent. I like the way he treats me and my husband, family. He is always positive even if I have been sick and some of my symptoms are not 100%. He doesn't over react and I appreciate that.
