Brentwood, NY |
Dr. Smith was so highly recommended to us during a stressful and difficult time during which my 15 month old son had to have a mass removed from his ear. Dr. Smith was very proactive, honest, direct and clear in his plans and it is rare that I feel so respected when dealing with doctors! He performed my sons surgery so quickly and his ear looks fantastic barely 24 hours later. I can't recommend dr. Smith enough!!!

We saw Dr. Smith because our 2 yr old drooled a lot and couldn't swallow without gagging. He performed a scope and when it came back normal he was very dismissive and said our son would outgrow the issues. 4 years later our son is no better. This week we found out he has a congenital brain condition called a Chiari malformation that has been impeding his ability to swallow since birth. How come this top ENT never raised the possibility of a neurological issue? We are truly astonished.

Dr Lee Smith is the most awesomest of all Drs. Ever. He is sweet, caring, and funny. Best of all he is amazing at what he does. My family was very lucky to have him. Son was diagnosed with ADHD...By chance we took him here. Now, I have a changed boy who is listening, eating and talking more than he has ever had before. I am so grateful to Dr. Smith. He truly is the best in the world at what he does, and we are so blessed he is only a close drive away. Go if you can get an appt.

Compassionate, responsive, approachable -- a rare find in the medical profession!

Dr. Smith is an amazing doctor! He was able to diagnose my son when no one could figure out what was wrong, and he took the appropriate measures to correct the issue. However, his bedside manner leaves much to be desired. He is pretty curt, and he doesn't say things in a sensitve way. I do recommend him, because he clearly knows his field and he is cautious and doesn't jump into things, but just be prepared that he isn't a warm and fuzzy kind of doctor.
