I don't know what to say. This doctor has more experience than the rest of the vascular surgeons in columbus. He designs and manages operations. ; He is world recognized. He has fellows and residents from all over the world. His diagnosis amanagment and aftercare of my complex arterial issue in my pelvis and legs was life saving. I accept that he manages a complex team of health care providers. He truly is the captain of a great ship.( as an aside I did had a few glitches with the crew but they were not Dr. Smeads fault.)

My husband had aortic aneurysms, which Dr. Smead correctly diagnosed. Dr. Smead was his doctor for six years and was supposed to be part of my husband's surgerical team, but did not come. He never visited during the three months my husband was in the hospital after the botched surgery, which led to my husband's death. Dr. Smead did not return my phone calls.
