Dr. Smith performed surgery on my ankle to repair the ligament and tendon and it was a success! He was very informative regarding all of my options throughout the process and quick to respond to any questions or concerns I had. I have never had to wait more than a few minutes before being called back by the nurse and always felt like he was there to listen to me and not rush on to the next patient.

Dr. Smith has always treated me with politeness, professionalism, and courtesy. He welcomes questions from his patients, and has never behaved in a condescending or patronizing manner. Dr. Smith is a credit both to himself and to his profession. I consider myself fortunate to be one of his patients, and I'm sure you'll agree.

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.
