Feeble old man that shouldn't be practicing medicine anymore.

I have seen many orthopedic surgeons and Smith was one of the worst. Based upon the irrelevant questions he asked, his very limited physical evaluation of me and his odd comments, he clearly is just going through the motions, does not know what he is doing and should have retired a long time ago. I wouldn't trust this old geezer with the health of a stray cat.

Poor fundamentals for torn rotator cuff

My surgery was a complete failure,not just one time but, unfortunately, I had the misfortune of thinking he would get it right the second time around. He didn't and I found out from a true shoulder specialist that Dr. Smith had destroyed any possibility of repairing the torn rotator as he had destroyed my deltoid!
