I was told i needed surgery and that i should file for social security disability… I thought my life was over . Thanks to Dr Smithers i didn’t have to do either.. I will be eternally grateful… I’m back at work and looking forward to a bright future..
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.
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.
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 »

I was back today for a torn knee ligament and the first ozone injection, and am confident this will be healed also.
Alex is unlike others in the medical field. He has a calm professional manner and very patient in listening and explainingMy 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 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 »
Dr. Smithers is a wonderful doctor with a wealth of knowledge in a variety of areas.

I am forever in debt to him for fixing me! He is bright, friendly, kind, welcoming, & has great bedside manner. I would highly recommend seeing him for any issue.... Read more »
