Patient Testimonials

Carla A.


Great experience! Really thankful for Dr. Smith, who is a caring, concise, patient, and skilled surgeon. My symptoms were atypical and he took the time to wait and see before rushing to surgery, which I really appreciated. Ultimately, we decided surgery was what was best & all went very well. The office staff is friendly and capable – hardly any waiting in the office. Thanks, Dr. Smith!

Dr. Smith did a hernia repair surgery for me last November. He did the surgery robotically with what I believe is called a Da Vinci machine. Those machines and Dr. Smith’s skill were both incredible. I highly recommend Dr. Smith. He was very clear and responsive throughout the process and did a terrific job. If I ever need another procedure done, I have no reservations about using his services again.
