What People Say About Dr. Frank Smart, MD
Reply
Dr. Smart treated me for viral myocarditis -- something I had never heard of before. He was great at explaining to me what was going on. He's very willing to answer questions and provided great care when I was a patient of his. I would highly recommend him!
