Late Cancellation Policy
Please cancel appointments with 24 hours or more notice. Appointments cancelled with less than 24 hours notice will incur a late cancellation fee. There are a limited number of available appointments, and cancelling with enough notice allows other patients to take that time, or for Dr. Smitherman to allocate his time to meetings.
For procedures, your appointment could be blocked out for up to 4 hours. This is a significant amount of time. The more notice on a cancellation the better.

Laboratory Testing and Imaging
Dr. Smitherman will often need to order lab testing or imaging for your condition. This may include x-ray, MRI, blood, urine, saliva, and/or hair analysis. Your insurance may cover these tests. This is dependent on your coverage, copay, coinsurance, and deductible.
If you utilize your insurance, and your testing is not covered, then the cost that will be passed onto you is often significantly more than through a self pay discount service. Dr. Smitherman has established self pay routes of obtaining laboratory analysis and imaging services that make the cost significantly cheaper for self pay patients.
Dr. Smitherman gets no compensation from ordering your laboratory analysis and imaging studies. Dr. Smitherman has no vested interest in if you use your insurance or self pay for these services. However, we have found over time that self pay makes the cost of these services transparent, reasonably prices, and enables a smoother obtainment of care for patients.
Dr. Smitherman has a linked supplement store at the bottom of this page. This store is open to anyone who would like access to quality, physician grade supplement brands. Dr. Smitherman’s patients have the additional benefit of steep discounts on supplements. If you are a patient of Dr. Smitherman’s be sure to request your profile with supplement discounts.
