Best Doctor for Sickle Cell. She very tough. Tough love I mean... Lol! She's a great human being! Thanks Dr. Smith! I will see you soon!
My fiancé transferred to Dr. Smith in 2014 and it has given us a new lease on life! My fiancé suffers from sickle cell anemia and prior to Dr. Smith was always told she would live until her 40's and the goal was pain medication and just enjoy time on earth!! Well that wasn't enough so when we got transferred, Dr. Smith immediately reassured us that she will lead a strong and long life well into her 80's. She mentioned all these new found treatments and has been a blessing since. She's the best!!
