Didn't remember anything about the surgery since I was under general anesthesia, but I have had no complications and had not needed any medications post procedure so I can only assume everything went well.

Dr Clifford Smith is awesome. He listens well and sort treatments carefully. I did the 24 hour ph probe and the barium swallow X-ray which showed a recurrence of a Hiatel hernia. So Dr Smith carefully discussed the options. So I did the redo of the Hiatel hernia. He explained the surgery to me...more

I found my initial contact informative and was impressed with the attention to detail and clarification that was given to me by Dr Smith. I would certainly recommend him to anyone questioning their Health challenges.

This was as good an experience as a minor surgery can be. From initial appointment to post-op follow-up, the treatment was thorough, professional and responsive. Even better, the people who helped me along the way (nurses, receptionists, anesthesiologists) seemed to genuinely care.
