From the moment I checked in for my appointment, I was met with courtesy from a friendly staff. And what can I say about Dr. Smith? He was kind, knowledgable, efficient and, best of all, helped a knee problem that has been bothering me for months. I would highly recommend Dr. Smith!

Dr. Smith is the finest orthopedic surgeon I can imagine. It's been almost six months since the last of my two hips were replaced by him. I've transformed in this last year from someone who could barely walk to a person without any joint pain or ill effects whatsoever. I'm like new. Moreover, Dr. Smith takes exceptional time with and interest in his patients, is immensely informative, extremely caring—and really, really, really skilled at his profession. I can't recommend him highly enough!!!

Dr. Smith has done two knee replacements for me and two for my husband-- and a hip replacement for my husband, too. We wouldn't think of going to anyone else. If you want THE BEST look no further. I have had surgical nurses tell me that he's one of the best orthopedic surgeons they have ever seen. I would trust this man with my life.

I had my 1st appointment scheduled today w/ Dr. Smith. Am very new to this area and got lost on my way there. I called to notify I was having problems. I was 15 minutes for the 2:00 appointment time but according to the middle aged officious woman at the desk, with a clear dose of arrogance, informed me I was too late and would have to be rescheduled because I showed up too late for her paperwork...as though I did it on purpose. Stay away from this place. Arrogance is what they serve.
