What People Say About Dr. Stafford Smith, MD

My first visit he came in met me for 5 minutes and ordered all these tests. After getting these “necessary” tests he ordered I was to have a follow up with him. However, I kept getting calls from his lovely staff that he would not be there and I had to be rescheduled. Not once but three times!! If I needed these testings done why am I not important enough to be seen after to go over my results? I found a new cardiologist and you should too.

Dr Smith is a very friendly person. I like the way he took his time and explained every thing that I needed to know about all the testing that had to be done . My wife and I feel that Dr.Smith and his wife Mary Rose go above and beyond to do everything for you. They make you feel like you are part of their family.

At the start of this month when I had my wisdom teeth extracted, my heart had a bit of tachycardia and my family physician suggested that I visit a Cardiologist just to make sure everything was as close to healthy as possible. I was extremely apprehensive, but the entire office staff, particularly Mary Rose and Dr. Smith himself were very comforting and caring to my individual case. I would recommend Dr. Smith highly & have already provided his name to others. Dr. Smith is the best around!

Dr. Stafford Smith took the time to answer questions and concerns. It wasn't an in and out session. He in my opinion is extremely knowledgeable and pretty much made me feel I picked the right doctor.

My story began in November of 2016, my heart beat was irregular and I was feeling every beat, I was very anxious and tired. My husband contacted Dr. smith's office, at which time he was greeted by Maryrose, they spoke at length about my symptoms and I was scheduled to see Dr. that day, this does not happen in Scranton often. testing was done and Dr smith spent quality time giving me options on my diagnosis. I'm a patient for life , and I have trusted him with my family also.

Dr.Smith took the time to thoroughly explain the functions of the heart, the many conditions and causes of heart disease and why the medication he wants to put me on is so important for my future health. He was attentive and took a full history of all my past and present health conditions, read through my records completely and asked me questions to fill in any gaps. My husband and I are impressed with him and I would definitely recommend him as a cardiologist. The staff is friendly & fun too.
