11 Patient Reviews for Dr. Smith II

"Dr Smith was outstanding. He was very up front and transparent about the procedure. He was very reassuring and helped manage my stress regarding the surgery. Finally, the results are fantastic. Less than 4 weeks out from surgery and I am almost pain free and all of my wounds have completely healed. My wife (who herself is a nurse) said that my scar looks as if a plastic surgeon closed it up. Heart surgery is no joke...but Dr Smith helped make it as bearable as possible. Five stars!!!!"
