What a terrific doctor. I would highly recommend Dr. Smithy to family and friends. I know Dr. Smithy for many years and had many colonoscopies done and he is great. Also as a surgeon, wonderful. My son had surgery for diverticulitis and thank God he is fine and the operation was a success. Very caring doctor, and very good. A sweet and gentle man.

Dr Smithy performed a hemicolectomy on me May 20th. I was back playing beach volleyball on July 1st. The 1st day was the roughest. It got much better everyday.
