Compassionate and would highly recommend him over Hospital of special surgery
in Staten Island, NY |
Dr.Smith discussed every concern I had with my operation which was very reassuring because that was the first time I had any type of operation or hospital stay of that magnitude. I had visits with a few highly recognized physicians in this field and I felt confident that Dr. Smith was the most qualified.

Dr. Michael Smith operated on me April 2008 at Montifiore Hosp. I had a cervical lamenectomy with fusion. Thankfully to God my recovery was amazing. Dr. Smith is an excellent neurosurgeon! I was so happy my surgery and recovery went so well. In just three months after my surgery, I flew to the Caribbean, attended my daughter's destination wedding and I danced so much no one could tell I was still recovering. My prayers were answered. Thank you God and thank you Dr.Michael Smith! :)

Dr. Smith is an excellent, skilled neurosurgeon. He operated on me in May of 2014 and helped me tremendously. His caring ways are exceptional for a surgeon. I would not hesitate to recommend this fine doctor and please know that you will be in good hands with a doctor that truly cares about your outcome as a person and patient.
