    He is the best!!! I had facial spasms for 5 years, I was prescribed too many and different medications, nothing worked. Neither botox. I was desperated and depressed, until I decided to get surgery. Dr Smith gave me confidence and faith. Recovery was quick, without complications or side effects. Dr. Smith changed mi life.

    Why Does Experience Matter?

    Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
