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. Virginia Verduzco
