    This provider was fantastic. Excuse me. She was doing a knee injection in my knee and pulling fluid out of my knee and putting the shot in my knee and I didn't feel hardly think which was amazing. So her bedside manner was wonderful, and she's very, very adept at what she does. So I'm very impressed with her. Thank you.

    Wonderful treatment. Great to see the learning experience the other two were learning from Dr. Smith and Dr. Deodhar. The injections were painless and I am already feeling much better. Can't say enough good things about all my treatments at OHSU.

    She was very sensitive to my pain and became finished quickly so I could make my next appointment.

    Timely appointment, friendly and reassuring, I'm not very appreciative of big needles, and this injection went quite well.

    Hi. I really appreciate Dr. Smith. She's always kind, she's always knowledgeable, she has a diverse background in being not only internal medicine doctor but also having a D.O. medical school degree and was a physical therapist. She has so many eggs in her basket that she can use to help people, and she's a very kind person and extremely competent person.
