I have been a patient of Dr. Smith and Tami for over 10 years, as well as my husband, son, and mother. I have had many doctors in 4 states in the past 25+ years, and hands down Dr. Smith and Tami are the best medical professionals I have ever had. Dr. Smith is a listener, and always sharp and attentive. She never talks down to a patient, or acts like the ""old school"" doctors from days of yore. She has helped me and my family thru a variety of medical issues, and it is clearly evident that she keeps up on the latest medical news and treatments. Tami is highly efficient, caring, knowledgeable, and always takes care of our needs and calls. I have also had the opportunity to see other doctors or PAs when my doctor was unavailable, and am very impressed with all of them. The staff is also very friendly, helpful, and professional. Donna in Calls/Reception department is the dearest person, and always helps me when I have a question. I can't say enough nice things about them - and I'm not one to give out casual compliments.

I have been a patient of Dr. Smith's for 10+ years, not only is she a great doctor she is a fantastic listener. Tami is an awesome nurse she always has a smile on her face and makes me feel better just by being there.
The entire staff including the operators are nothing short of professional and courteous. They alway try to fit me in the tight schedule the doc's have. If you want a doctor that will listen to you and give you some words of wisdom and sound advice this is the place to go.

I never believe negative reviews. When people write such negativity, it usually because they didn't get what they wanted (medicine, a certain study, time, etc).
It's best to see a doctor for yourself and form your own opinion.
Sometimes doctors run behind because there was a patient before you that took longer than expected and usually its for a good reason (examples: a patient who had a loved one die that needed to cry it out, a patient who might be having a heart attack or stroke, or a patient who has been a victim of abuse that finally had the courage to speak up...).
Keep in mind that doctors and nurses are HUMAN beings too and yes, just like the rest of us, have bad days.....

My parents and sisters have been going to this practice for ages -- at least 20 years. He is the doctor for me, my husband and two kids now. We moved back from out of state and are just thrilled with how much time he takes with each appointment and his knowledge and compassion. We highly recommend Dr. Samms, and our experiences with his nursing and office staff have been pleasant and professional.

Easy to get an appointment. The women who work in the front office are very friendly. The nurse was great!. Dr. Leverette leaves much to be desired. I found him to be very arrogant and unprofessional. If you are looking for a caring doctor who listens he is not for you.

I have 4 children, 2 girls & 2 boys and a husband. We made Dr. Leverette the doc for the boys in the family and Dr. Smith the doc for the girls. Dr. Smith doesn't come to work very often and when there her care is way below standards. Dr. Leverette has been an amazing doctor and I am trying to switch the girls over to his care but have been having a problem with the practice. We may have to leave all together. Sorry Dr. Leverette. Dr. Smith doesn't return phone calls, is always way behind schedule and her nurse is a bit dingy too. Dr. Jennifer Smith should go into research and leave the caring for patients up to the medical school graduates that actually care about people.
