Dr. Smithers has been taking care of my knees for a few years now. My experience with him has been consistently outstanding. His care has allowed me to avoid knee replacement surgery. There was a point when I had so much pain that I was not able to spend more than 15 minutes on my feet.. Because of his treatments and direction I have gotten my life back, including 20 mile bike rides and trips to the Disney parks with... Read more »
I had my second appointment with Dr. Alex Smithers today. I was treated for painful arthritic hip, back, and neck. After treatments I felt immediate results. I was able to go shopping with my daughter with no pain which wouldn’t have been possible before without considerable pain. I am very thankful to my daughter who found Dr. Alex and this office. I am also very thankful to Dr. Alex. I have flown twice from Pa. To see him and will... Read more »
I couldn’t be happier with the treatment I received from Dr Smithers. I had been having knee pain for several months, making it difficult to walk for an extended period of time. I finally decided to have Dr Smithers look at it, and he decided to do prolotherapy. After a few treatments, the pain was completely gone. I’m thrilled to have found this clinic! And I highly recommend Dr Smithers!
Dr. Alex Smithers is outstanding…a talented Dr. Who is extremely passionate about healing as well as the skills involved in rejuvenative therapies. I go to him for ozone (prolozone) and dextrose (prolotherapy) injections. Have gone to him already at least 8 times. He uses ultrasound to diagnose and monitor and his injections really work. Best of all he’s a great guy and very easy to chat with.I became interested in pursuing ozone injections from Dr. Smithers after a friend received the treatments
and recommended it to me. I just finished my second round of injections in my neck, lower back, hips and both knees. I have experienced lower back/hip pain most of my adult life, endured a knee injury while white river rafting in my 20’s and have had progressively worsening neck pain since a car wreck in my early 30’s. For reference I am 47... Read more »
Doctor Alex has been treating me for severe gut issues. I was tired of going to doctors that didn’t listen to me and would just prescribe a pill not ever trying to get to the real issues I was having.

I had been suffering from chronic neck and shoulder pain for almost 2 decades. I tried chiropractic and acupuncture, which didn’t do anything for my pain. Using essential oils and CBD would help, but that was a temporary fix. Through an online documentary, I found this clinic in Sarasota. Meeting Dr. Smithers was the best thing that ever happened to me. He’s not just a very competent doctor, he’s also very compassionate and patient. He’s extremely knowledgeable and well read,...
