No way would I EVER recommend this person. Not only did he and his staff dismiss and belittle our concerns about our daughter post surgery, he left a clip on her bileduct causing her to go septic. Not the only kid he did this to either. 3 years later and she is still battling through the after effects of his carelessness. If I could rate him a 0 I would.

Dr. Smith was very relatable with his patient (our 2-6 month old daughter), with my wife and I (varying medical backgrounds), and with the hospital staff and care team for her. He is very knowledgeable and skilled, and takes time to know his patients and walk them through his procedures and methods. I cannot recommend him enough to anyone in need of a pediatric surgeon.
