I have used Dr. Smith for 10+ years! I have circulation in the right side from this man and his skills! He developed my fistula in order for me to receive dialysis, for three years! Non of this is simple and I proudly recommend him and the team at Texas Vascular Assoc.! Rating five stars is easy when one day your told to go to his office and don't stop on the way! My clinic could not find a pulse in the right foot! He did surgery and viola I'm fine! That was nine years ago, I guess!

Contrary to the other reviewers my comments are only positive. I have found Dr. Smith to be helpful by fully explaining what my conditions are and how to treat them. He is very kind and makes my feel that he really cares about me and what he can do for me. I have full confidence in him.

Wait time in room undressed and cold for over an hour numerous times. Always felt like I was wasting his time and that mine was expendable. Day of surgery postponed twice, second time was due to a seminar he wanted to attend, I asked his office assistant to see if one of his colleges could take over and do my surgery that day instead; response was he will fit me in and do the surgery as scheduled. Rushed through surgery, I was awake for the Venacure/Stab Phlebectomy Procedure.
