in Memphis, TN |
Dr. Smith performed my toe surgery. I had scare tissue that build up through the years from another surgery done by someone else. Dr. Smith is very profession, caring and just a really good doctor. His bedside manners is one of a kind. I can barely see the stitching/scare that was done on my toe. I was back in a shoe at 4 weeks and my toe looks WONDERFUL after 6 weeks. If you are looking for a very good doctor that knows his craftsmanship, look no more because I have done your research.
