Disfigured due to his negligence

Dr. Smith has changed my life forever. He knowingly performed surgery on me while I had active MRSA. Him being a dr, I thought he knew what he was doing. When i had complications after surgery, he was very negligent! He sent me home after an emergency appointment, but luckily, I had two people with me who decided to take me to UT Medical Center instead of home. I was admitted for emergency surgery, went into renal failure, stayed nearly 2 weeks and not once did he call to check on me! Since then, I've lost both breasts due to his negligent, unprofessional behavior and I'm facing more surgery. I'm unable to work or even "live" the way I could before he messed me up. I regret the day I met him!

I don't know about all these reviews. I have always had wonderful experience with Dr. Smith, his staff, and his nurse. He does a great job on plastic surgery - 2 for me - and he is reasonable on his costs.

I had a procedure done years ago and I was left disfigured, and wishing I could of just kept my previous condition because it is way better than this doctor left me. I went back to attempt a fix and its about 5% better, but I refuse to let him touch me ever again

I just love Dr. Smith. My son was born with a cleft lip and palate and when we were refered to him he reassured me that everything was going to be fine. After my son's surgeries he called me to make sure everything was going all right. If I ever had a question he is always willing to answer. He always uses words I can understand and made sure I knew exactly what was going on.
