Dr. Smith came into the room and already knew my past surgeries without me having to tell him. It was clear that he read all notes prior to coming into the room. He took his time to explain everything to me. He did a great job of calming my fears and making sure he answered all of my questions. I didn\'t know what to expect from Dr. Smith, but I was pleasantly surprised with his care, compassion, honesty and knowledge.
