Hip replacement problem

Had right hip replacement a few years ago. Ended up with a significant leg length discrepancy. When I mentioned it to him, he became VERY defensive and denied it. I cannot recommend him. There's are a myriad of wonderful doctors in Boston. Don't use him.

Knees

I only had the opportunity to see Dr Smith once because I had to leave the state due to an emergency but I was going to have bilateral knee replacements with him and felt confident that he was extremely qualified and professional. At my appointment he was genuinely caring but did not waste time with me just straight to the point in a caring and capable manner which was appropriate given the circumstances. I highly recommend this doctor and look forward to returning to Massachusetts so I can get the care I need very soon.

Great Doctor

Have had two knee replacements with him while he was at Tufts and I feel like I finally have my life back. Can not say how wonderful it is to have that feeling as I am not yet even 50 and was unable to do a lot of the things that I used to enjoy, BUT now I feel great all thanks to his superb skills :) Highly recommended
