I have actually set in his office hours upon hours at a time, and often wondered why hasn't anyone called the state board about this situation, and the only conclusion that I have come up with is No One Cares. So needless to say, he is no longer our doctor.

Unfortunately the stories you list here are true. The reason I believe this occurs is because many of the citizens of this county don't seem to think they deserve to be treated better. The culture of scheduling appointments and then not honoring is a routine practice.
Our family see's a local physician who treats us with courtesy, respects our time by honoring the schedule, Dr. Dilip Joshi.

I have been Dr, Doug Smith's patient since he came to Jamestown. I wouldn't go to anyone else. I have also worked with him in the past. He has forgot more than alot of Doctors will ever know. He has never once ask me if I want any drugs.He may have alot on his schedule with Jamestown, Clarkrange and Wartburg, but he is not on his farm when he has patients sitting in his office. I know some of the boys who work on his farm and they say he hardly ever comes out there. Ask anyone who has ever worked with him what kind of Doctor he is. If you are looking for drugs you can find them about anywhere.

Dr Doug Smith is one of the biggest drug deelers in the county. I worked at a Pharmacy for years and he is a very big problem in this county. I know what I have see from him and don't care what any one else thinks.

He is my doctor and he has never ask me if I wanted drugs.If you work for a Pharmacy your not suppose to be telling stuff like that. Shows how stupid you are.Sounds like someone who likes to run off at the mouth.He is a very good doctor. I work with him for 14 years and he was nothing but a nice guy, that knew his stuff when it come to medicine.

I have been going to Doug for 4 years after I had Neck Surgury and needed pain pills heavy for awhile he was the only doctor that seemed to care about my pain and he worked to change the meds so that adiction would be less likely He slowly reduced the amount and strength until I did not need them any longer, He will still give me some when I need them but a dealer he is not. Just a doctor. If you have ever been hurt than you know how most doctors treat you as if you are a junky and I never felt that way with him. By the way you are the one who takes the pills he is not shoving them down your throat.

BULLSHIT he is the best doctor in Jamestown. All he is good for is prescribing pain pills and antibiotics. It's pretty sad when you have to tell your doctor what kind of tests to send you for to see if you have cancer or not..ITS DAMN SAD when another doctor FINDS cancer in you..SOMETHING that has been there for 10 years, and then have doctor Joshi find out that ANOTHER doctor found it and then see you out and about in town and not even look at you in the eye BECAUSE HE KNOWS HE SUCKS!!!!!!!! You're nothing but a sucker to Doctor Joshi and all he is doing is piling all of your money in his bank account...SUCKER!!!

He quit seeing my we as a patient because I don't take any pain medication and now I am having trouble getting a doctor because nobody is excepting new patients. I guess I am screwed.

Tracye Robertson, next to video world is the smartest and most thorough healthcare provider in this county. No one else comes close. She also takes new patients.
