Excellent

Dr. Smith expertise and genuine concern enabled me to receive life saving care. Initially he was a second opinion for my cancer and he offered alternatives not provided by my first specialist. If I had not followed Dr. Smith's advice rather than my first specialist I am certain I would not be here to write this review. Thank you Dr. Smith!

Unfortunately no longer at Duke

I was a big fan of Dr. Smith. He always listened to my concerns and ideas, and was even willing to think and act outside the box a bit with my case. I started seeing him not long before my liver transplant. I was pretty sick before transplant, and he did a great job optimizing my medications which made me as comfortable as possible. After transplant (just under one year ago), I saw Dr. Smith, and I was again impressed by his skill and experience. Unfortunately, on a return visit, I was told he was no longer at Duke. The other doctors who have been involved with my case (Dr. Brady, Dr. Muir, Dr. Berg, and Dr. Choi) are all good too, but there has been no consistency in who I see on each visit.

Outstanding

I recently was diagnosed with Auto Immune Hepatitis, I was referred to Dr. Smith by my local GI doctor. Dr. Smith is incredibly knowledgeable, compassionate and listened to me. I felt very blessed to have been under his care.
