I have tried to help anyone who asks me about this quack. He is a rip off. He took a young girls money who had saved up to visit her parents. She drove all the way from New Mexico for Christmas, got ill and went to get "HELP" from Dr. Smith, he helped himself to her money and did nothing for this young lady and when she asked for an invoice he refussed. Luckly this young lady had support from her parents that are willing to do what they can so nothing like this happens to others.

He did not just take advantage of me. What made me so mad and makes me want to cry is my Grandmother was trying to help me it was her money. He took advantage of a 75yr old womans money that she got from working part time typing her fingers to the bone! That Bastard!!!
If anyone knows a group of people that are getting together against this doctor please reply and tell me!!!!

Keep going and try to get ahold of Don Dare on "your side". Try all the TV stations. Write them letters that works the best..or even go to the TV stations in person. Once this airs a couple of times more and more people will come forth. Lots of folks do not know about this site but do watch TV. Get ahold of Knox News, it is a weekly paper printed in Knoxville, they publish stuff the is true but other papers won't publish.

This guy needs to be stopped. He took $600. of my money for a simple infection. He wanted to charge $1200. but I refused to "buy" the medicine he recommended...including the vitamin "Shazaam" he sells. He also tried to tell me I had High blood pressure which I don't. Notice he uses old style BP monitor..so you can't read it. He also demands partial payment in cash.(the ATM in the waiting room should be a warning). Don't go there!!!!!!

Hi there,
I am feeling your anger. I moved here from another state and didn't have a doctor. My son got sick and so I took him to see Dr. Smith. Then I got sick, so I went to see him. My husband and I kept asking for a bill, but never received one. He told us that he was going to give us a break because I needed other work done. We asked what his fees were, but he would never give us a direct answer. He said he would charge us a package price for things to being done. We would go into his office every few weeks with a payment, but before we would even get paid, he would call us, several times a day, to ask when we were going to stop in and pay him-when we already discussed this with him when we were in his office. When I would go in for my check up, we would sit in his office for an hour and a half. He would talk to us about politics, other patients, etc and then, he would check my blood pressure. He told me that I had high blood pressure and he put me on medication. But, he would only give me two weeks worth of medicine so that I would have to come back in and get my blood pressure checked again. He told me that I would have to be on medicine for the rest of my life. Every time he took my blood pressure, he would have to do it a few times because he said he was having problems with the machine. I started thinking, this guy is charging me to check my blood pressure-when I can go to Walmart or Walgreens and check it for free! And that is just what I did. And when I checked it at five different locations, guess what? It was always normal or below normal!! THIS MAN PUT ME ON A SERIOUS MEDICATION THAT I DIDN'T NEED! We had given him a check and when we realized that he was charging us a 190.00 per office visit, we stopped payment on the check. He was furious and threatened to have my husband arrested. We honestly tried to work with him and trusted him. Last week, the sheriff showed up at our door and served us with papers! He is now suing us for this money. This man is unbelievable! He needs to be put out of business. It upsets me to see what he is doing to people who don't have insurance. We would appreciate anyone who would be willing to help us.

PLEASE READ!!!!!Dr. Nelson Bryan Smith has a RATING of "F" with the Better Business Bureau. Follow the link below or check the BBB for yourself. http://www.ratemds.com/doctor-ratings/51574/T... He leaves his own comments on other site acting like a satisfied customer. He runs a detox and want the addicts to come in so he can take advantage of them. Crook Smith knows an addict is less likely to turn him in. The only reason why Dr. Crook doesn't accept insurance is because it's harder to rip off the insurance companies and can charge what he wants.I feel sorry for all the tourist in Pigeon Forge that are going to get ripped off by this CROOK. If you have been a victim of this GREEDY CROOK report him to the BBB and the Ten. Medical Board. The links are below. Tennessee Medical Board http://health.state.tn.us/consumers.htm#compl...

I would be delighted. He threw me out for asking a question about my 85 year old mother's care. I'd love to participate.
