Great doctor very kind and informative. I had 2 biopsy surgeries done and a port installed with no issues. No pain and side effects after. Also referred me to other doctors that are great!

Dr. Smith repaired a hernia for me, it was almost miraculous. I was fully mobile within 3 days, didn't need the powerful painkillers at all, was exercising and bicycling after 4 days. Now two weeks after the surgery I'm cleared to do whatever is comfortable. His office is highly efficient, scheduling was simple, and he went well beyond my expectations in locating a good anethesiologist that he trusted to assist in the surgery. I can't thank him enough!

I will never be seen by him again. He sent me in for a CAT scan, I had that done and it took over two weeks before he had someone call me to schedule another visit with him. I asked that he call or email me instead of me coming back in and it’s been another week. So 3 weeks with no results. There are other surgeons that actually care enough about people to make them more of a priority.

I have had a wonderful experience for my gallbladder surgery. The surgeon is not just very skilled, organized and intelligent but also attentive to your needs as a patient. Surgery scheduling, procedure and post op went without a hiccup. Office staff works fast, communicates well and delivers on requests from FMLA forms, prescriptions and Doctor's notes.

I very much appreciated that he did not relegate my post surgery care to a hospitalist. He kept his rounds as promised to see me and did all he could to help me have a painless recovery.
