Great General Surgeon

Dr Smear is very nice and spends time with the patient answering questions concerning upcoming surgery. It is quick and easy to get an appointment. I would definitely recommend him to my friends and family.

Would never recommend to even my worst enemies !!!!

No bedside manner whatsoever... took over 2 months and 10 days in the hospital on IV anitbiotics and fluids to recover from my gallbladder surgery. Never saw him again after the surgery, followed up with his partner, Dr. Squires who was wonderful !!!!

He is my hero.

Dr. Smear and his staff make you feel like you are very important to them and they followed through with me and stayed on top of everything for me due to another doctor's delay of surgery.
