Dr. Smeltzer is a caring and compassionate doctor. I would definitely recommend him to anyone a oncologist.
in Blue Springs, MO |
He is very thorough & knowledgeable. He treats you like you are his only patient in that he never rushes you & takes every question you have & answers so that you can understand the process. He wants you to go into your treatment plan knowing what to expect & I appreciated that. I had complete confidence & trust in him from the very day he met me in my hospital room. I just knew he was the Dr. for me & I've never looked back! I'm in remission now!
