I wanted to anyone that needs a total knee replacement or other procedures that Dr. Smith performs, that from the first meeting, I could tell that I would be pleased to have him for my surgeon. First, he is down to earth, personable, made me feel at ease right away, and I thought the most important about Dr. Smith is, he is very passionate about his gift as an Orthopedic Surgeon. I think that is important. He stays up to date in his profession. I am very pleased with my new knee. Thank you!

Glad we found Dr. Smith!

New Doc in town! My 5 year old son fell and hurt his wrist. When I explained what happened to Dr. Smith, from my description, he told me what he thought was broke. An x-ray confirmed his diagnosis. Dr. Smith was extremely caring and made my quiet son feel very comfortable. The care we received was remarkable. Even though it was a minor break, Dr. Smith made us feel glad we came in. On our return appt to take off the cast, the same caring attitude hadn't changed. Glad we found Dr. Smith!
