Dr. Smith and his nurse are simply amazing. Dr. Smith is thorough, understanding, and caring. He does an excellent job of explaining procedures and next steps. So blessed to have him care for my daughter. I really appreciated that the nurse called my child back prior to the appointment time and we were seen in a timely manner. I was disappointed in the lack of precautions in the waiting room that I have seen at all CHOA facilities and other doctors offices during this COVID pandemic. No one checked temperatures, chairs were not wiped down between patients, and I chose to complete all registration including uploading my insurance cards to prevent anyone touching my stuff to protect my child, but the receptionist said it was still required and was not pleasant about it. Thankful all patients and staff were in masks.

I had to wait til my son was 6mths before the would do his surgery, but the were professional and asked if I had any questions. They made sure everything was done correctly and always let me know what was going on. Made sure I was completely informed before, during, and after surgery and care.

My daughter has been a patient of Dr. Smith since she was 10 days old. Dr. Smith, Gerda and the whole staff at Georgia Pediatric urology are amazing. We absolutely love them. We will continue to stay with Georgia urology when she is moved from pediatrics to adult. Thank you so much for the amazing care you have given and shown for my daughter!

Today was our first interaction with Dr. Smith, we had a telemedicine visit and he was able to assess my infant and explain everything to me in regards to his diagnosis and need for procedure. Dr. Smith was kind and explained things in a way that my husband and I could understand.
