Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

I have been a patient of Dr. Ryan Smith at Rush University Medical Center in the initial months of 2021. He is an amazing doctor and human being. Not only he is an excellent surgeon, but also he has gone the extra mile to deal with my insurance. If you are looking for a surgeon to perform a closed (or open) approach to rhinoplasty, he should be one of your top choices to consider.

I saw Doctor Smith for a tumor on my masseter muscle. He was able to protect my facial nerves and avoid any outside scar on the face by removing the tumor intraorally. He did a wonderful job. He explained in detail any risks or benefits and all of my options. Dr. Smith patiently answered all my questions and was never in a hurry when working with me. I can't recommend him enough.

I saw Dr. Smith for his expertise in facial plastic surgery. He removed a growth that plagued me for years leaving no scar at all. He listened to me alleviating any fear I had. This is one top notch doctor who truly cares about his patients.

Dr Smith is a true class act. He has an excellent bedside manner, is polite, attentiveand thorough. He was super gentle when he scoped me for my vocal cords. Talks to you in a very personal manner, he listens to your concerns. I would recommend him to any of my friends or family.
