Dr. Smith II

"Dr. Smith gave us a detailed explanation of what to expect after surgery. He explained that even though robotic surgery is less invasive than open chest surgery. I felt better about the procedure and had a better understanding of what to expect. He has a great bedside manner which is sometimes hard to find in a surgeon. "
