I had Prolozone therapy with Dr Alex Smithers. My knees and thumbs were injected due to meniscus issues in my knees and arthritis in my thumbs. Dr Alex was wonderful. He’s very gentle, kind and patient. I’m a very nervous patient and he took his time with me and did his best to make sure I was comfortable. I’m feeling better and continue to expect more and more improvement. I highly recommend Dr Alex and his staff. They are warm, caring and knowledgeable. Thanks to all of you

Dr Smithers is so acute and atuned to what others miss. I had been suffering with abdominal issues for over 20 years getting no help from traditional medicine. He found and correctly treated the issue. Words cannot describe the quality of life that has been restored to me. He’s very caring and takes the time to listen.

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 my grandchildren. I travel over an hour each way to his office, but it is worth it to have such a passionate educated physician in my corner.

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 I was feeling in my sinuses, teeth, face and head. After seeing 3 different ENT’s because I thought it was all in my sinuses, my family doctor sent me to a neurologist who scheduled me for an MRI of my brain in August of 2013. The MRI came back normal. He diagnosed me with palatal myoclonus and referred me to Mayo Clinic. After reading their treatment for palatal myoclonus on the internet, I was very...

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 yr old female in good health, active life style and a regular yoga practice. My neck pain had progressed to the point that my twice monthly chiropractic visits we’re not giving me any relief. I was experiencing numb burning spots down my right arm. I receive my first injections in January. I was a little tender and stiff for 2-3 days after. By the 3rd day all mild discomfort was... 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. 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 asmithersI 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 my questions as well as his follow-up phone calls checking to see how I was doing.

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. If a doctor became established as extraordinary, I was there seeking treatment and even begging for treatment for the pain was like being boiled in oil.
The reason I have achieved health with you is due to your marvelous skill set. You listen well, your diagnostic skills are superior and your needle placement is very accurate. In addition, you have a caring and empathic nature focusing more on your patients... 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... Read more »
Alex Smithers is not only smart and so helpful with my husband and his knee problems but he helped me with my stomach issues. I would go to him before I tried any other form of medicine. Thank you Alex!!
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...
