Dr. Smith's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Smith "I am the oldest child of a large family of 10 children. My father was a physician, who specialized in Psychiatry. He worked very hard to support our large family, but he loved his work. During medical school, I developed a love for surgery. It seemed that all the toughest problems were referred to the surgeons and that they made amazing changes in people's lives. Initially, I was attracted to Ear, Nose, Throat-head and Neck Surgery as a surgical specialty. I traveled to one of the best schools for this specialty, at the time, the University of Texas Medical Branch located in Galveston. I also received the highest score in the nation on the federal licensure exam -- one of two national exams all medical students must pass to become a physician. I enjoyed living on the gulf coast and having warmer winters, which eventually was one of the reasons I chose to practice in Las Vegas. During my many years of training, I had the opportunity to live in all parts of the country and to train at some of the finest medical institutions in the world. This training and experience has helped shape my philosophy regarding medicine, as well as plastic surgery specifically. Plastic surgery is a combination of science and art. I feel I have been blessed to have a very artistic sense. I treat every surgery as if it is a work of art, something that I want to be proud of when it is finished. It is my philosophy to treat each patient as if they were personal friends and to use cutting edge technology combined with old-fashioned values. Nothing takes the place of caring and concern. Our attempt is to treat others in a manner that we would want ourselves or our family members to be treated."

The only reason he gets 1 star is because it won't let me give 0. Everything about my visit to Dr Smith's office was terrible. First off, I waited 3 hours to see him. When he finally decided to grace me with his presence he was rude, and made me feel stupid for asking questions. I tried calling and...more

Everyone was so kind and treated me like family. Dr. Crowley the anesthesiologist, called me before the surgery to go over any questions, played soothing music while I was being sedated, and even called me a couple days afterward to see how my recovery was going. Constance and Shannon were very...more
