I had repair for a very difficult hernia. It took me 3 months to schedule the surgery. His schedule was so full I could not get in to see him. Another surgeon refused to do the surgery because of the difficulty of the procedure..

This is one of the more impressive MD's I have ever seen. He assured me that he could correct my problem while others had doubts. The operation went fine and recovery was quick and non problematic. Again I was very impressed with DR. Smith.

I liked that he provided less invasive procedures before major procedure & that he talked about every part of the procedure. I felt like I really knew what was going to happen
