During my time at Williamson Medical Center, Dr. Smith did a good job on my procedure. He took the time to call my mom to let her know how the procedure went. He was nice and explained what was going on. He took the time to explain what he was gokng to do before he did the procedure. He is a good doctor and surgeon. I would recommend him to anyone that is looking for a surgeon

My initial visit—pre-surgery—was perfect! Everyone on the office staff, nurse, physician’s assistant and Dr. Smith himself could not have been more kind and helpful. All of my questions were answered thoroughly and professionally, and I felt that I could not be in better hands! Now I am actually looking forward to my surgery, anticipating much-needed relief!

I was referred to Dustin Smith by my doctor for a bellybutton hernia. When I arrived for my appointment, everyone was so nice. They took me back early and I saw him very shortly after that. Dr. Smith made me feel so comfortable with his professional bedside manner and assured me he would take the best care of me. He fell nothing short of those expectations during the office visit and surgery. Dr. smith and his team went above and beyond with their kindness and professionalism and I would HIGHLY RECOMMENDED him to do anyone’s procedure! Thank you again Dr. Dustin Smith and his team, I cannot thank y’all enough!

My son was told by a specialized Vandy dtr. that he had hernia. We went to Dr. Smith for a second opinion. Dr. Smith didn't think he had hernia and recommended an ultrasound be done. It showed NO HERNIA! Thanks to Dr. Smith my son avoided surgery. Dr. Smith is an excellent dtr. and his staff are excellent too!
