What People Say About Dr. Thomas Smith, DO
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I had a total knee replacement and it could not have gone better. I attribute this in large measure to Dr. Smith's skill. The pre-operative steps taken pretty much insured there would be no surprises as to what to expect and the same is true of my post-operative care. His personality is such that you feel you can ask multiple questions and trust his answers because they are based on what is best for you. I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone in need of surgery or even seeking advice on how best to manage their joint issues.

I had both hips replaced by Dr. Smith 2 years ago. The hips were done 3 months apart and I’ve been pain free ever since. I was up and walking the same day and needed minimal physical therapy. I would recommend Dr. Smith to anyone needing hip or knee replacement. He is caring and compassionate and does an excellent job explaining every step of the replacement process. He spends quality time with patients reviewing x-rays and answering any questions.

I had my hip replaced in Nov 2018 by Dr. Tom Smith. Everything went smoothly from the pre-op to the post-op. I am a 58 yr old man and was back on the elliptical machine in January. Dr. Smith knows hips and I would recommend him to anyone in need of a hip replacement.

I had a complete knee replacement in Oct. 2018. The results have been fantastic and I look forward to playing golf this season. I expect the first painless season in years. I would recommend Dr. Smith to any of my friends or family.

Sometimes I have to remember to say "Dr." Smith because he makes me feel more like a good friend. Dr. Smith has somehow managed to keep me mobile while I keep putting off an inevitable knee replacement. He's always available to me, is very personable and professional, extremely knowledgeable and on top of the newest procedures. He even has a way of making a cortisone injection tolerable. I followed him from his last practice to his current location and would follow him again if need be.

When I went to see Dr. Smith, my hip was so bad I had difficulty walking and was in extreme pain. Within 2-3 weeks after my hip replacement I was able to walk without a cane and most importantly without pain. He explains things thoroughly and is very patient, kind and understanding. I highly recommend him!

He preformed a tkr August of 2015. It was never right now I am dealing with serious health issues and have to wait to have knee revision surgery and live in lots of pain from my knee which doesn't help my other health issue.

I saw Dr. Smith today. Two other doctors had recommended hip replacement since neither drugs not cortisone in the hip itself gave the relief I needed from osteoarthritis and bone spurs. He consulted with me, very patiently, and gave me more information than either of the other two surgeons I had previously seen. He provided me with options but also cautions since I had had a stroke a few months back. He was very competent, sincere, up to date, and totally transparent.
