Rebecca L. - "Dr. Smith saved my life! He did emergency surgery on my colon that had ruptured. He explained everything thoroughly and his bedside manner is in a class by itself. Excellent surgeon."
Heather T. - "Amazing surgeon with great bedside manner and follow-up care! Would definitely recommend him to anyone that needs surgery. Thanks for everything, Dr. Smith."
John P. - "Great doctor! Did my appendectomy the same night I went in. Was very thorough and communicated everything with me. Definitely would recommend to anyone and already have to the company I work for!"
Dora B. - "I had my first experience with Dr. Smith in in December 2018, thru the Banner Estrella Hospital ER. He operated on a old hernia, which was very problematic and required a great deal of Dr. Smith's expertise to fix. Surgery was a success. Now, I had another hernia on June 2021. Dr. Smith found a smaller hernia that he fixed besides the bigger hernia that was his main goal to fix in the first place for this surgery. I am so glad I went back to him when I felt something was wrong this last time. He wasted no time in finding out my problem. He answered all my questions before and after surgery. Dr. Smith is a kind, caring, and gracious person. I will definitely return to him for any future problems that might arise."
Susana G. - "I had my gallbladder removed this Sunday by him I seriously didn't feel a thing.Thankfully I was in the right hands!! Thank you so much dr.smith no more pain!!"
Paul D. - "Dr. Smith repaired a hernia for me, it was almost miraculous. I was fully mobile within 3 days, didn't need the powerful painkillers at all, was exercising and bicycling after 4 days. Now two weeks after the surgery I'm cleared to do whatever is comfortable. His office is highly efficient, scheduling was simple, and he went well beyond my expectations in locating a good anethesiologist that he trusted to assist in the surgery. I can't thank him enough!"
