Care Philosophy

I am a physician first, then a surgeon. Patients have a story to tell...I listen. My primary goal is to restore function to help patients to return to work and play. Part of that involves communicating with patients and educating them about their disease. In understanding their disease, patients become a key component in their own recovery. As a Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of British Columbia, I treat hand, wrist and elbow disorders ranging from simple to complex.

Dr. Donna Smith is incredible!!! She is funny very caring, Patient, understanding. She did both my carpal tunnel surgeries. I would recommend her to anyone
Seattle, WA |
Abrasive, rude, and unprofessional. I've never felt so insulted or demeaned by a doctor, she told me she didn't know what was going on (even though I had already been diagnosed by two other doctors prior to the appointment) and refused to tell me the possibilities of the diagnosis. Worst doctor's appointment I've ever had.

Dr. Smith is the best of the best. She's performed hand surgery on both my hands. Shehas great communication, really keeps me informed at each step and always gives me the options. She asks about my life and schedule- and she really cares. Best orthopedic hand doc you could ever see.
