Great cosmetic surgeon

I initially went to a grand rapids surgeon for my lower half (butt/hips) cosmetic surgery and was very unhappy with my results. I then came to Dr Smith to have him correct her work and he did an amazing job. His staff is great and his office/surgical center is A+. I definitely recommend Dr Smith and would absolutely trust him with doing more cosmetic surgery for myself.

Fears relieved!

I had struggled with a recurring spot on my face and also my ear. My appt with Dr. Smith was great. He explained what the spot was, but did a biopsy just to reassure me and also to confirm his diagnosis for me. While I was in the office, I asked him about the spot on my ear which he took care of right in the office. I didn't expect that because I was in for something else, but he saved me a trip and also took care of the problelm. Thanks Dr. Smith!

Multiple procedures

I have multiple surgeries with Dr Smith spanning over the last 20 years. I have always found him to be professional and the staff made me feel very comfortable. They have always been available to answer my questions. I am highly satisfied with the work done by Dr Smith and have most recently started seeing his nurse injector Michelle for Botox and Kybella. I couldn't be happier with the results!
