Dr Smith fixed my back exactly the way he said he would. Minimal invasive surgery with minimal pain afterward. I am completely satisfied and would not hesitate to use him again should the need arise.

I had a consult and surgery with Dr Smith due to disc problems in my back. I would recommend anyone who asks me to Dr Smith due to my overall experience with him. VERY fast and very helpful with everything. I was in EXTREME pain and within a few days, I was up and about.
