Excellent Doctor and Surgeon!

Had surgery on my hand. Dr. Smerlis allowed me to be very active in my decision making which made the surgerymuch easier. Was completely painfree after 24 hours and in physical therapy after on 5 days. Completely healed with no issues after and can't even find the surgical site when I show others. It is completely gone!

Great Doctor

It has been about four years since I've been to Dr Smerlis for a broken wrist. It has healed nicely and you can't even tell that it has been broken before. I would recommend Dr Smerlis he is very good .

i am rewriting a bad review i posted as a result of a miscommunication

dr smerlis does NOT need to be sanctioned.i wrote that in the heat of anger, pain and frustration. once we sorted out the issue, dr smerlis went above and beyond to treat my hand surgery with the utmost care and skill. i could not believe how fast i healed after surgery and how the pain i have been dealing with for years is finally gone. i would reccomend dr smerlis to any family member or friend who needs "the Best" hand surgeon on the peninsula. dr smerlis is simply one of the most brilliant surgeons i have ever had the fortune to find,and i have had quite a few(7 or 8) surgeries for orthopaedic problems other than hand in the past. thank you DR> SMERLIS!!
