Dr. Smart operated on my shoulder to repair the damage done when I dislocated it. He took great care in explaining my injuries and options. He is very caring and easy to talk with. Post surgery experience has been the same. He listens to me and addresses any concerns. Recovery is going well because of Dr. Smart's excellent care.
