    Dr Smith is very good at listening to your questions and answering them in a way that is easy to understand. I had full faith in his recommendation to perform surgery on my son. I would recommend him to anyone.

    Five stars are simply not enough to describe our experience with Dr. Edwin Smith. He is an outstanding pediatric urologist, who is not only highly knowledgeable but treats his patients with utmost care and respect. We felt completely confident entrusting our son's orchiopexy surgery to Dr. Smith. His office staff and surgery team are absolutely top notch, handling everything from appointment scheduling, insurance issues, surgery care and any questions we had in a caring, efficient manner.

    This was our first time meeting with Dr. Smith. He was knowledgeable about my daughter's condition (Her previous urologist retired) and took time to talk about her diagnosis and explain our options. He listened to our comments/concerns and addressed each one.
