in Lutz, FL |
Dr. Highsmith really listened to my specific needs and wants and made sure to do what was right for me. He is very knowable. He was so helpful and really took his time to explain things to me. I had four different procedures done and I was very nervous and the pain. He virtually made it pain...more
