Dr. Smith is such a compassionate oncologist, and always has time for only a few or lots of questions. He never seems to be rushed, but acts as if we are his only patients. He explains well-what to expect, drug interactions, etc. My husband and I think he's the best, and do not feel that we would've received better care anywhere else in this great nation.
