I have been a patient at Integrated Pain for several years and I couldn't be happier with my experience. Every time you couldn't ask for a friendlier, warmer staff, who genuinely cares for your well-being. I never thought I would be able to get my chronic pain under control, but Dr. Smith has managed, what I thought, was impossible. My day to day well-being has improved tremendously, thanks to Dr. Smith and the Integrated Pain staff. Thank you !!!
I began seeing Dr. Smith in 2012 after years of lower back and sciatica pain my regular PCP was unable to help with. Dr. Smith and his team are excellent! Not only do they provide amazing State of the Art Facility, Dr Smith and everyone in his office really cares and it shows. Every time I see him, he lets me know about anything new that may help me. Highly recommend! One last thing. Dr Smith is the BEST at making sure you are comfortable and in the least amount of pain possible during procedures.
