Dr. Smith recommended my father get a leg amputation after tests showed poor circulation in his foot. When asked about getting a second opinion, Dr Smith said there were no other options and an amputation was inevitable. Thankfully we visited another vascular surgeon in the city and I can gratefully report that HE DOES NOT need an amputation. Dr Smith misdiagnosed my father and all he needed was a new medication to treat neuropathy. My father is currently pain free and still has his leg. Dr. Smith needs to update his equipment to better diagnosis his patients. I feel bad for those patients who had unnecessary amputations. I DO NOT recommend Dr. Smith.

I would give ZERO STARS if I could. This "man" is a poor excuse for a person, let alone a Dr. He needs BBB on him and his license taken away immediately. He told my elderly grandmother "I hope you have bad luck" and called her stupid. Unbelievable? I know... this is not the last hes going to hear from me.

Would definitely recommend Dr Smith to all my friends and family. He explained every detail and I was fully aware of what was being done and what to expect. Also, Mary was the most pleasant and forth coming with all information. Such a wonderful person with a great personality. Thank you, Rose G.
