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. Dr. Alex has listened and treated me holistically and I am feeling great!! Thank you for everything Dr. Alex.
Gastrointestinal Issues was last modified: June 2nd, 2020 by asmithersMy husband had severe sciatic pain so bad he was bed ridden. Because our regular Dr. was out of town we went to our chiropractor to try to get some relief. He was not able to get as much relief a he needed so Dr. Daly asked us to see Dr. Smithers – another Dr. in his office.. What a BLESSING!! Dr. Smithers is the best of both worlds Eastern and Western medicine! He suggested something called PROLOZONE therapy... Read more »I would highly recommend Dr. A. Smithers if you are considering an alternative to orthopedic surgery. My shoulder has been in pain for months and after finding out I have some rotor cuff tears, I decided to pursue Prolotherapy with Dr. A. Smithers. The result so far has been outstanding! The first night after the shots was still painful, but woke up the next morning and pain was almost completely gone. I was equally impressed with his attentiveness to answering... Read more »
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 »

In Oct of 2013 I was diagnosed with stage 4 Cholangiocarcinoma Malignant Neoplasm Cancer of the Bile Ducts of the Liver.

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 »
Dear Dr. Smithers,
This letter is to thank you for your caring, skills and services. Having Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy for over five years was pure misery. I visited over 30 doctors in over a dozen states. I scoured the computer for the best of the best, which included university professors and authors on Prolotherapy and Orthopedics. Four of those even taught Prolotherapy while others focused on Stem Cells. I even received advice on the countries leading scientist on cartilage.... Read more »
Dear Dr. Smithers,
I just wanted to thank you for treating my trigeminal neuralgia pain.
In May of 2012 I hit my head on a concrete ledge resulting in severe head trauma with unusual and very painful symptoms that followed—throbbing, knife stabbing, severe tension in and around my head, constant clicking noise, and my soft palate in continual motion. I was first diagnosed with TMJ for which I was given an appliance to align my jaw. Which did not take away the severe pain... Read more »
