Here is a sample of the results experienced by our patients.  

-For as many years as I have been in pain, I didn't know it was possible to feel

     hope for a normal future.  CW

-Thank you for your genuine help.  I almost cannot believe I was in such a

    pain a few months ago.  Nowadays I am working normally and almost have

    completely forgotten about my pain - I don't even think about it anymore.  

    You both have been my best team to help me to my recovery.  And I can't

    thank you both enough.  Know that I will never forget your wonderful

    kindness and professional services.  And I also thank you both for

    helping my daughter.   She always thinks highly of both of you and

     I agree with her, too. ST

your patients more aware of how to live a better/healthier life.  KG

    sit and take time like he does...1 in a million.....thanks for all ya'll do. WK

-I have been going to Dr Smith for nearly ten years and first went

        to him for help with back problems. He was also able to help me

        with other problems such as arm pains, leg pains and headaches.

        In 2001 I had been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes by my general

        practitioner and was making some headway in lowering the numbers,

        but I was having to take lots of expensive medications. There were

       other problems associated with the diabetes such as being overweight,

       high blood pressure, sinus problems and teeth problems. At one point

       I was spending about $1000 a month on all the various meds and

       wasn't making the progress I'd hoped for, so I quit taking everything

       as I ran out.   The problems continued and I asked Dr Smith if he knew

       of anything I could do to help and he gave me a detailed patient

       questionnaire to fill out. Then he took the time to do a full evaluation

       of that information and decided to have me get some lab work done to

       find out what the numbers were like. After reviewing all the findings

       he worked up a plan for me to follow to cope with the diabetes and

      other problems. There was no call for medicines but he did suggest a

      dramatic dietary change coupled with using various vitamins and supplements. 
    Since that time just over a year ago my weight has dropped almost fifty

      pounds, my numbers have improved greatly, I no longer have high blood

      pressure, my pulse pressure and rate have improved, and I have fewer

      sinus problems. Also, the weight loss has helped with the back problems

      I had first gone to see him about.    Dr Smith has been such a valuable

      asset in my health care that I now consider him to be my primary health

      care provider. If I have the flu or bronchitis I will visit the general practitioner

      but Dr Smith will remain my number one choice to deal with most health issues.

      Anyone who thinks all chiropractors only deal with muscular and skeletal problems can learn a

      valuable lesson by consulting with Dr Smith for many other problems, and

      can benefit from his professional help. DP

-Our names are TC and EC. We have been patients of  Dr. Robert W. Smith

     since 1986. Our children and, now, our grandchildren also see him. Dr. Smith 

     has been a godsend to our family. Neither TC nor I would be walking today if

    it weren't for Dr. Smith.  I can't begin to tell you how caring Dr. Smith is. 

    You can always reach him, day or night. You don't have to talk to an answering

    service. He will do  whatever it takes to make things better. He has helped

     us in so many ways, not just chiropractic. If we have any questions or concerns

     about other health issues, Dr. Smith will lead us in the right direction. He is so

     much more than a chiropractor. Dr. Smith goes above and beyond the realm

     of continuing education in all aspects of healthcare.

     We call Dr. Smith for our second opinions. He has   NEVER steered us wrong.

Thanks Dr. Smith for all you do. We really appreciate you. TC and EC


-I came to Dr. Smith on a referral of a close friend. My neck was stiff and  I had numbing

    pain that would render my left arm useless.  After a round of pain killers from my medical

    doctor and several unfruitful sessions  with a physical therapist, I finally gave in and did

    something that I swore that I would never do! Go see a chiropractor.

    Contrary to my expectations of “being popped and snapped”, Dr. Smith examined me

    and then took x-rays.  We then embarked on a series of stretching sessions that included

    electrical muscle stimulation which consistently improved my complaints to where one day

    Dr. Smith told me that he could not improve my then status.  My neck pain was gone and

    I had now a full range of motion in my left arm with no numbness. 

    I have come to trust Dr. Smith’s judgment and methods.  You can trust him not to “lead you

    on” with unnecessary treatment. GT


­-Thank you so much for the wonderful treatment you gave me.  I am doing well.   EM


-I want to thank you for the guidance and reassurance you gave me to start being healthier. 

    Since my husband  has had his heart attacks I have changed how I think of exercise and

    food.  I have lost 30 pounds and have the drive to be a better person for me.  I run across

    your  handouts that I have kept from BNI and I smile when I reread them.  They are all

    valuable pieces of information for me.   Celebrate Life, GM.


-Many years ago, I was involved in an auto accident which affected my lower back.  At that time,

     I did not believe in chiropractic medicine.  However, after many doctor visits, spinal injections

     and lots of prescribed medication; I turned to chiropractic as a last resort.  After all, it had

     worked for my maternal grandmother and she is still washing and cooking at 91 years old. 

     When I arrived at the chiropractic appointment, I did not sit for fear of not being able to

     get out of the chair.  The pain had my right leg numb and somewhat dragging.  I left the

     appointment with no pain and mobility I had not experienced in months.  Years later,

     the chiropractor retired and I was left with no referrals.  I managed for about a year and

     finally could no longer stand the pain.  I opened the telephone book to the yellow pages. 

     I called two other chiropractors for an appointment.  As a new patient, it would be a week

    or two to obtain an appointment.  I then called Dr. Smith's office.  Not only was the staff

    cordial and receptive;  they were also very understanding of the urgency due to the pain. 

    I was seen the very next morning.  My initial visit consisted of lots of personal information

     which was never asked at other doctors' visits.  Dr. Smith  was interested in my lifestyle,

     eating habits, nutritional supplements or vitamins, exercise routines, sleep patterns

    or problems with sleep, work environment and stress levels, prior medical care and the

     results from said care.   He questioned and noted my responses.  I was beside myself

     with the interest this doctor had taken, before he  addressed the back pain issue. 

     Once the x-rays were taken and the adjustment was complete, I again met with

    Dr. Smith before I left the office.  He inquired about my treatment, my pain and mobility. 

    He answered any questions I had regarding my spinal injury.  We discussed future visits

    and treatment that would hopefully alleviate the pain of the injury. We discussed nutritional

    and lifestyle changes and/or recommendations which would facilitate a healthier spine. 

    He was so informative.  Never had I felt as though my entire well-being had

    been treated, along with my initial complaint.  It has now been so many years since that

    initial visit, I can't even remember the year I met Dr. Smith.  I still see him occasionally for

    the spinal injury.  Just as a friend concerns themselves with your well-being; Dr. Smith

     still concerns himself with your general well-being.  His practice has branched out to

     offer other health services which address your well-being in greater detail. Through the

     years, there have been other health issues which have arisen with age, lifestyles, work

     environment, nutrition, etc.  Now more than ever, my entire well-being is treated with

      each appointment.  The experience and added health services have proven to heal more

       than my spinal injury; without prescribed medications and their side-effects.  For the

      first time in my adult life, I am living without antibiotics, allergy injections, or pain medication. 

      The shame is, insurance companies have yet to realize the benefits of this health professional’s

      services as I have. My trust and thanks go to a doctor; whom truly cares about the welfare

       and well-being of his patients, Dr. Robert Smith. 

       Thanks Doc!   CC              


-I am a 51 year old male, with no real history of problems, but my last few years had found me

     on multiple prescribed medications for all sorts of problems, not the least of which was high

     blood pressure, soaring cholesterol, etc.  I came to Dr. Smith in December of 2009, experiencing

     constant pain in my lower back, along with a host of lesser ailments.  I had already been to

     traditional orthopedic doctors, who wanted to perform exploratory surgery.  I also sought

     out the services of an accredited acupuncturist.  All of this was a considerable waste of time

     and money and I was still miserable with pain.  I was taking pain medications on a daily basis

     just to be able to make it through the day. 

     I decided to give chiropractic care a try.  Ultimately, I chose Dr. Smith because of his

     educational background and the multiple chiropractic disciplines he utilizes.

     I was skeptical during my first few visits; it seemed that all we did was fill out

     questionnaires, medical histories, symptom profiles, do blood work, and various tests, both

     physical and psychological.  I was still in pain!  All along, Dr. Smith explained each step,

     and the reason(s) why it was necessary.  But I was still in pain every day of my life. 

     Over the previous year, I had gained more weight than ever, I could not exercise at all

     and my back hurt worse than I could have imagined.

     Then the day finally came when I got all the results…I received a three-ring binder full of

      information.  I was not prepared for the level of detail that Dr. Smith provided me, which

     included a comprehensive plan to restore my health, and eliminate my pain.  I was still skeptical,

     but at least there was a plan in place.  I might add here that although I have seen many doctors

     in my years, I had NEVER encountered a professional that was more thorough  and comprehensive

     than Dr. Smith proved to be.

      I started the program Dr, Smith prescribed for me on January 14th of 2010.  At the time of

     this writing, I am virtually pain free!   I cannot remember the last time I took a Tylenol, much

     less anything stronger!  I played kickball with my daughter last weekend!  I can now even cut my

     own grass!  Also, I lost some weight…I was tilting the scales at 290 on January 14th but on Easter

     morning, April 4th, I weighed 232, a loss of 58 pounds! 

     My results may not be typical, but it has changed my life!  I feel better than I have in more than

    5 years.  I sleep soundly now, all night long.  I wake up full of energy.  I am now blessed with a

    zest for life rather than the dread I faced each day just a few months ago.  In every measurable

    or definable way, I am physically and mentally  better than I was before I came to Dr. Smith.

    I can recommend his service without reservation whatsoever.  I am a new, and improved

    man because of him.  TW


-Thank you Dr. Smith.  Regardless of where I  live, you will always be MY doctor.   MP
