What People Say About Dr. Lisa Smith, MD

Our fourth month old had a dermatoid cyst. Dr. Smith was nothing short of amazing. She explained it well and took time out to converse with our family. We felt special. We called her during her on call hours and she took even more time out for us. In a time where people are always saying racial things, I can truly say that she doesn’t care about race. She just wants to care about the patient. Thank you Dr. Smith!

We took our son in for a procedure this morning and were looking to Dr.Smith to take the time to answer our questions. This, however, did not happen. Dr. Smith seemed annoyed by our questions and all but dismissed and minimized our concerns. After the procedure was completed, very little care instruction was provided.She then accused us of not feeding our child due to him being "skinny."This was highly offensive and ignorant considering he is a growth restricted twin and gaining above 1oz daily.

She performed a surgery on daughter neck, she told us the surgery was successful but a week later the symptoms returned and got worse so we took her back for a second surgery were she didnt even show up. Another doctor had to perform the surgery to reduce the swelling in her neck caused by a cyst. The nurse set us up with a check up a few days later after surgery with her office were she walked in and no exaggeration she walked in a ripped the bandage right off my baby starting crying in pain.
