We have been working with Dr. Smith for a few years now and he is the only one we will work with when it comes to my daughter. Best “Pee-pee” doctor this side of the Atlantic!

Dr. Smith was able to fix my sons problem that another Dr. couldn’t. He was direct and never rushed to answer our questions.

Our care has been exceptional with Dr. Smith. We are so pleased with the visits and surgery. The staff in the office has been helpful and quick with visits. The only negative has been trying to call to ask questions after surgery. We left several voicemails and messages and didn’t receive a call back.

He took such great care of my baby and really was gentle and attentive and quick dealing with my baby’s surgery. Strongly recommend if you’re looking for a professional you can depend on for your child’s care.

Dr. Smith and the staff at Georgia Urology are fantastic! The intake process was entirely online, which I appreciated. We waited a very short period of time and Dr. Smith was in to see us within two minutes. Very impressed with how efficient this practice is being run. Thank you!

Dr. Smith and the staff were wonderful. There were patients in the waiting room with masks pulled down exposing their noses and mouths. Patients should not be allowed in the facility without proper face covering.
