in Poway, CA |
Dr. Smith did multple very complicated surgeries on my left arm after breaking it in many places in a dune buggy rollover in Oct. 2016. 10 months later my arm, hand, fingers, wrist all function well. I can't ever thank Dr. Smith enough and highly recommend him.

Dr. does not return phone calls timely; very concerned about break not healing properly after surgery; no follow up from Dr. Rude staff.
in San Marcos, CA |
Outstanding surgeon whom I would highly recommend. Suffered a trauma of a badly broken ankle and was so fortunate he was performing surgery at Palomar Hospital in Escondido when I arrived. Thanks to his excellent surgical skills I am completely healed and hiking, bowling and dancing after only 5 months. I followed his clear guidelines, didn't put my foot on the ground until given the go ahead and elevated all the time. I know it helped me heal thoroughly and I had no pain.
