Dr. Smith has been very kind and helpful whenever I've had questions or follow up regarding my kids health. My kids are always eager to visit with Dr. Smith as he always encourages them to take good care of themselves in a healthy way.

Dr. Smith is always pleasant to work with regarding my 18 month old’s care. He does a great job at explaining vaccines and answering any questions or concerns that I have. The nurses and front desk are also very sweet and helpful. I neglected to reschedule my son for his 18month (most recent) appointment and they were able to get me in only 2 days later. My son was very grumpy for his appointment but Dr. Smith & his nurse (I think her name is Maddy) were very patient with him. Whenever my friends have babies I always recommend McFarland Ames Pediatrics.

Dr. Smith is always excited to see my child. He listens to my questions and concerns without interruption or judgment. He provides advice and tips on my child’s behavior as well as reassurance about my child’s health. I’m very happy with him and his nurse, Madi.

Dr. Smith has been wonderful both times he has seen my kids. He listens completely to everything I say. I’m so impressed with his bedside manners. He is calm and doesn’t rush plus he was open to what I had to say. I 100% recommend him to anyone with kids. McFarland clinic is lucky to have him as a provider.
