      I had shoulder surgery. Following surgery, Dr. Smith did not let my husband or I know the results. When we asked the nurse, we were told he was doing surgery on the next patient. Orders to the physical therapist were wrong with incorrect diagnosis. Follow up visits post op were a waste of time. There is not space enough to say why I would not trust this doctor.

      I've met with several Orthopedic doctors who specialized in shoulders recently and very pleased with my experience with Dr. Smith, even though he was not able to help my with my shoulder problem. he thoroughly examed my shoulder both times and I was satisfied with the amount of time he spent with me.
