The following are reviews from patients of Dr. Smith.
  • “I very much appreciate Dr. Smith’s compassion and humanity. I was about to go on a trip to Europe and badly needed help with managing back and leg pain. I was looking forward to receiving epidural shots, but somehow the procedure got held up and canceled. Dr. Smith quickly rescheduled the system on a day; he doesn’t usually perform this procedure. We are very grateful for his help!”

  • “All of the staff were very friendly and helpful. The building was spotless and beautifully decorated. I did not have to wait very long at all. Dr. Jerry Smith was kind, compassionate, and indeed seemed like he cared about me. Because I have had severe back pain since age 12, and have never found a solution, I was discouraged. However Dr. Smith said some options would help me and to have hope. I left feeling very encouraged. The whole experience was exceptional!”

  • “I was in the medical field; I know which one is goofy and one who is knowledgeable. He is not arrogant as well. I am glad I picked him, I’m pretty sure the others have their good qualities.”

  • “"I recently had cortisone injections in both hips performed by Dr. Jerry Smith. From the moment I entered Summit I was treated with TLC from every person I dealt with. What a great staff from start to finish. I have no idea who is charge of training there, but that person should get a gold star on their chart. I would encourage anyone who has an orthopedic need for their expertise to use their service. A class act!" -- Roger B.”

  • “"Though a member of the white-collar fraternity, I was for most of my 70 years the neighborhood oddity who mowed and maintained his own lawn/yard, swim pool, boat, family automobiles, etc. Nearly simultaneous with my 70th birthday, I began experiencing severe leg pain, which an MRI revealed was due in large measure to spinal stenosis. In a matter of weeks, the pain increased and limited my standing/walking to no more than two minutes. Timothy Watson, M.D., suggested surgery -- the insertion of X-stops -- but an upcoming vacation/cruise delayed the surgery for more than a month.  As an alternative, spinal injections by Jerry Smith, M.D., provided temporary relief, as he had predicted. The surgery was performed 6/26/13. Six hours after arriving at the hospital, I was home and for the first time in months walking without having to bend at the waist. I experienced a few days of soreness along the incision/stitches, but Dr. Watson's work was so perfect that I never required the pain and/or muscle relaxants he had prescribed. My experience with the entire Sierra Pacific Orthopedics staff was nothing short of sensational. The physicians and staff are friendly, compassionate, attentive and thoroughly professional.  My experience mirrors that of my mother who several years ago underwent a hip replacement (another Sierra Pacific Orthopedics physician). Should anyone require orthopedic care, I would very strongly recommend Sierra Pacific Orthopedics. It is, in my opinion, the dimension by which all orthopedic care facilities should be measured."”

  • “Dr. Smith recommended a sacral joint injection. To provide temporary pain relief and help identify the problem. I'm hopeful it will provide a longer pain relief. The staff at Summit Surgical was amazing Mabel, Stacey and Jennifer were great! The procedure was flawless and quick. I felt no pain or discomfort during the procedure. Lastly, the attention I received in recovery was the best and I appreciated the follow-up call from the Summit staff.”

  • “I saw Dr. Smith's Nurse Practitioner. She was professional and had a good bedside manner. She asked questions and listened to my story, issues and needs. She explained what tests I needed and then explained the results to me in very easy to understand language. She gave me all the referrals I needed. I trust her.”

  • “The best. He explains in detail what will and is happening before and after surgery. During surgery, he continually asked me how I was doing – you know, the personal kindness.”

  • “During my first visit, Dr. Smith asked me questions about my background. He felt comfortable talking about his background and life experience, much related to my current health problems. Something important to me was when he was trying to explain what was causing my neck, shoulder, and back pain, he called me to the computer screen images and didn't hesitate to get academic on every image and issue. Important to me. Also, you can see how much he believes in diet, lifestyle. Doesn't hesitate to teach the importance of it. He's busy, in demand, but tries to stay in the office as long as he can with you.”
