Patient Comments (3)
He's the rudest Doctor I've ever met. In addition he said I definitely need an operation yet after getting a second (and third) opinion, I found that I did not need an operation. Definitely get a second opinion!

I went to doctor Smith for a second opinion. I was under the impression that this is an acceptable practice as the surgery I must have is very intricate. I have never been treated in such condescending manner in my life. Dr Smith let me know in no uncertain terms that my current surgeon and also himself did not need my money because both of their children are out college. In other words shut up and have the surgery and stop wasting his time. I would not recommend this man to anyone.

Found Dr smith to be very competent. My surgery went very well and all leg pain gone immediately after surgery, just some back pain from incision. He is very direct and to the point about what to expect and I did like his bedside manner. So happy I found him to do my surgery.
