I appreciated the doctor giving me alternatives to surgery and being candid about both surgery and non-surgery options. He has good communication skills and manner with patients...at least with me a 70 year old attorney.

He was very concise and thoughtful. He explained my issue and what options I have. He did not pressure me to make a decision, but told me that “it was my decision”.

I asked questions about my condition and he answered them thoroughly. He administered an injection to my wrist very gently- I felt no pain at all. He took his time in every aspect of the visit and I greatly appreciated that!

Would give more than 5 stars if I could for Dr. Smetana and his assistant Jess. I had an extensive injury to my arm, elbow, etc. due to an unfortunate event. When I arrived in the ER Trauma at IU/Methodist everyone from the Hand to Shoulder Center were at my side. Dr. Smetana performed surgery and everything that pertained to that before, during and after was not only professional but his bedside manners were awesome. Him and his staff were there for me every step of the way.

I had a humerus fracture near the top of the bone with a risk of having to need a shoulder replacement. During surgery the fracture was worse than x-rays showed. Dr. Smetana had the skill to repair the bone with no complications and now complete recovery. I highly recommend Dr. Smetana.

The most important thing of interest to me when I first met Dr Smetana, he had a plan "B" if the first approach to my wrist surgery did not work out. Fortunately he did a real good job with Plan A and "B" was not necessary Dr Smetana is very encouraging and positive on every visit.

He's a smart man. Appreciative of that fact. People don't care how much you know until they know how much you care. Dr Brandon Smetana seems to really care about doing the right things.

Talks too much. Might be a better teacher in a classroom than working in an office.

After being on time for my appointment, with few people in the waiting area, I still had to wait 45 minutes to be seen. Why did this doctor treat me like a number instead of like a person? He He started talking about cancer in my nail that had nothing to do with my condition. In fact, he did not wash his hands, was not specific about any medications, and just said "Let's wait and see."He won't ever see ME again!

My surgery and post op care was amazing. Dr. Smetana and his staff are amazing to work with. Very caring and always explained everything to me. I felt very confident that I would be back to doing all that I did before surgery. Thank you all.

Dr. Smetana performed my surgery to repair a torn tendon in my biceps. The surgery went very smoothly and my rehab was uncomplicated. Dr. Smetana was very informative both before and after my surgery. I just had my 6 month check and feel I am back to my normal lifestyle.
