Des Moines, IA |
Dr. Smidt has the most compassionate bedside manner I have ever had. He takes time with you and genuinely has your best interest in mind. He replaced both of my knees within one week apart. I was scared to death, but because I was in his care it eased my fears. I never would have considered a double-knee, but he knew I had the inner strength to do it and as a result, my quality of life and new knees are amazing! His nurse Eric is also a huge patient advocate. I value Dr. Smidt's quality care!
