Surgery requested was breast reduction from DDD to lg C. NOW I have one breast a size A and one B and my nipples aren’t the same ones higher than the other. I asked him what was he going to do to rectify this, he took me back into surgery and on the A breast he pulled up tissue from under my breast and stitched it to my rib which was extremely painful and DIDN’T WORK! He wouldn’t do anything else. HE RUINED MY LIFE.

Dr. Smith is a great surgeon. I always felt comfortable talking to him about my issues with back pain, being insecure because of my large breasts and so on. He listened like a close friend would! My surgery and recovery is going so well no complications. Dr. Smith did an amazing job with my BR he changed my life! He also has really nice staff that seem to really enjoy who they work for, just so nice and polite every appointment I've been to. I highly recommend dr. Smith he's the whole package!!!

Dr. Smith provided excellent care to me both in the hospital/office. He explained my procedure in detail, and took time to answer my questions. He is very friendly and never made me feel uncomfortable during the entire process. I am elated with the outcome of my surgery-even better than I had hoped for. Additionally, his office staff are very friendly. Scheduling appointments were flexible. The nurse coordinator navigator walks you through the process. Thank you Dr. Smith-you are the best!
