Great physician. His time is your time. Makes you feel like you are his only patient.
Dr. Donald Smith focuses on YOU the patient at all times. He possesses excellent assessment skills. You never feel rushed during your medical office visit. This is a surgeon who continually tries other medical treatments and never rushes into surgery. You may wait months for an appointment and months for surgery, but by then you will know that surgery is necessary at that time.
Dr. Donald Smith was absolutely excellent at his bedside manner diagnosis and timeliness to fit me in for surgery and he was highly recommended by many surgeons and other doctors . My orthopedic doctor felt comfortable with having Dr. Donald Smith do my surgery that is upcoming. He took his time like I was his only patient to go over everything with me show me exactly what he was looking at and the plan of care and then he had his assistant follow up with me in mediately for a surgery date . I will update the review once I am recovering from surgery which I'm sure will be great . I recommend getting more than one opinion as Dr. Donald Smith was right on target with the mayo clinic opinion and I have decided to have Donald Smith is my surgeon .
