"After being referred to doctor Smallwood for surgery from another gastroenterologist . He took the time to listen to my problems and set a path to find out what the real problem is. He gave me samples and thank god they worked. Also scheduled for better CT images to find out what the real problem is.

"Dr Nathan Smallwood is very thorough kind and patient. I felt very comfortable knowing that he actually "listened " to me as a patient and acknowledged my questions and concerns. I cannot say enough good things about him. He is the only Dr that I know that will give you his cell number after surgery in case you need him. He is also not too proud to request a second opinion before surgery . If I could give him 10 stars or more I would . He is fantastic!!!"

"Every interaction with every person I encountered at TDDC was a very positive one. I would recommend Dr. Smallwood any time. He gave me the best, most personalized care I have ever received from any physician, much less a surgeon. He was genuinely interested in me as an individual, and I felt that he really cared about improving my quality of life, which my surgery did. Desiree Frye, NP also gave me the same kind of genuine concern for my condition prior to my interaction with Dr. Smallwood. This practice’s response to my questions and calls was always the most efficient I have experienced. I cannot imagine better service and care…….Marla St. John"

"I view Dr. Smallwood as a very impressionable young Doctor who love the LORD and family as well as his practice. In addition to this he respects his patients. When I went in he was thoughtfully considerate listened to what I had to say gathered the information from me consulted with the more Senior Doctor came back and told me exactly what would take place then got me out quickly. I didn’t feel that I was just a piece of the puzzle to pad his pockets like lots of Doctors will do. He made me feel like a person and the presence of GOD is with him. The staff is hardworking, knowledgeable, and not pushy. They’re effective , efficient, and express empathy for their patients. Haven’t met Dr. Fletcher yet but theirs an old saying that if the head is cut off the tail cannot follow. From my first impression of Dr. Smallwood along with the staff Dr. Fletcher must be good. There establishment is neat and has a home feel to it. Dr. Fletcher along with his staff have their heads screwed on straight. Dr. Smallwood will make his Senior Doctors proud when it’s all said and done people lives will be saved and better because of his application and willingness to evolve. This is my personal experience and what the Holy Spirit shared with me. Overall great experience!"
