Great visit. Excellent staff - they were very kind, compassionate, and helpful. Dr. Smith was referred to me by my primary physician. He has the best bedside manner EVER. I was in pain and anxious, but he quickly put me at ease during the examination. He listened to my concerns and patiently answered all my questions. I highly recommend Dr. Smith to anyone in need of orthopedic care.
