I absolutely recommend Dr. Smith! I feel very fortunate to have a strong team of doctors caring for my cancer treatment. Dr. Smith is always warm and welcoming as well as patient and respectful as we tried to work through "wrapping our heads around" my recovery. He didn't rush and was very respectful of my issues. I am grateful to have met him and look forward to working through my treatment with him. The technician was also very professional and comforting. Thanks Dr. Smith.

I was treated for breast cancer a few years back. I found him to be very insensitive and dismissive of my concerns during follow up treatment.. particularly I am living with permanent hair loss 4 years out. on one appointment he said, your hair never did come back did it? when I started to speak, he motioned me to shut and leave as my 12 minutes was up. I cannot trust him because I find him to be first a businessman, then maybe a healer.

Dr. Smith is undoubtedly the best physician I have ever seen. He is warm, excellent eye contact, listening carefully to questions, giving clear answers, unhurried, reassuring. Over the years since 1988 I have seen him several times. I have always felt there was nothing standing between him and me for the entire consultation.

Dr. Smith remains vigilant on the current proven treatments available to me which shrinks the tumors in my body. I was already scheduled to have breast surgery by another doctor but my friend who is on a eight year remission insisted I see Dr. Magnant. Dr. Magnant a breast surgeon told me that she talked to Dr. Smith who thinks I might not need surgery. I am blessed that I have the best doctor's who remains vigilant on the most proven treatments!
