Regardless of how great Dr Smith and the other doctors are their support staff is very weak, unprofessional.Twice I have filled out the form for a possible appt.to be evaluated as a candidate for the lynx procedure,never got a return e mail/ phone call.This for me speaks volumes about the level of care one would receive here at NTSOA.I plan on moving on with someone else that my primary will refer me to.

Very pleased with the surgery Dr Smith performed on me just before Xmas. His staff was able to work me in during a very busy time of the year and Dr Smith never made me feel rushed as he carefully explained the pros and cons of the Linx procedure I was about to have. The procedure went well and at the two week post-op appointment I was pleased to learn that he didn't need to see me again every few months just to make sure everything was okay.

I was put in a terrible situation by OTHER doctors [a victim of medical malpractice]. This was guy was nothing less than fricking incredible. He came in, and in simple terms, he told me what was wrong, told me what he intended to do about it; AND HE DID IT. My surgery went exactly as he said it would, the guy literally saved my life and accomplished the intended goal. Please know I do not make these statements without due consideration after having provided AAA judicial services for 17 years.

Dr Smith is nice, presents himself well and seems to have allot of experience; however, the surgery he did for me (Ventral hernia repair with mesh fabric) failed after 9 month. In speaking with a new surgeon in Maryland, the other surgeon felt that the wrong repair technique was used for a reliable repair on a 2 inch Hernia originally caused by a gall bladder removal. In fairness, the surgeon removing the gall bladder also performed the repair incorrectly for a large hernia.
