Bad Advice

I gained nothing at all from my visits to this doctor. He was prompt enough, and obviously military, however, still treats people like they are in the Army. Civilians don't like being told to toughen up, especially when he has no idea what the problem is. One man in the waiting room said he was glad not to follow the advice given, saved him an unnecessary surgery and lifelong problems. He certainly just wasted my time. Went elsewhere for proper diagnosis and testing.

Two Stars

His nurse was rude and did not act like she cared. I did not have to wait long which is a plus and he spent a decent amount of time with me but I did not care for his bedside manner and did not feel that he fully treated the matter at hand fully and his nurse was not helpful to give my test results after a called a few days later to receive them. Will not be going back to him. Doctors need to realize that patients deal with their staff especially the nurse more so than the physician so if the nurse is rude and unhelpful then it makes it hard and aggravating to deal with his office.

Dr. Smith performed a prostatectomy on me upon his arrival in Rota, Spain. To this date I have been cancer free and have not suffered from incontinence. The above ratings are from his tour in Spain while at the Naval Hospital.His professionalism, demeanor and skill are above reproach. I miss him.

Exceptional Military Urolgist

Most professional. Kind, understanding, and most caring. Willing to travel between countries, and serve at monthly basis. I am one of lucky one to obtain his care with two operations. I gain the health to write this short note. Thank you for giving selflessly, and caring for everyone.
