What People Say About Dr. Philip Smith, MD
Dr. Smith is excellent. Took care of my father on several occasions. Gruff but honest, doesn't sugar coat or tell you wrong. Work with him in surgery that is why my father went to him, liked him, and appreciated his opinion. As a family of a patient I appreciate him, as a coworker I respect and appreciate him.
