After enduring discomfort and having many tests for over a year, I was taken by ambulance to the hospital in extreme upper chest pain. Heart ruled out as problem. All tests were inconclusive. Suspected bad Gall Bladder. Dr. Smith performed major surgery and removed diseased Gall Bladder. Dr. said it was the worst one he had seen in many years. Very satisfied with Dr. Smith and St. Luke's East Hospital.

Horrible, terribel experience. Surgery was scheduled by his Professional Scheduler and then changed it to 3 weeks later because she was apparently confused. On the date of surgery, again 3 weeks after we were originally told it woudl take place, Doctor showed up 55 minutes late and said he was stuck in traffic. I called the office at 35 past start time and nobody knew where he was. We were told by his office thast he did not have a previous surgery. Follow up was another mess. We left!

In an 8-month period, I had visited over 35 doctors with extreme pain that no one could diagnose. By the time I presented to the Centerpoint ER, I was ready to give up hope that anyone would find what was wrong. I begged Dr. Smith to find the source of my pain. He performed surgery on me, and found that my gallbladder was quadrupled in size and ready to rupture. I also had pelvic adhesions. Within 2 days, I was back to myself and walking upright again. He truly saved my life.
