My daughter has had 3 surgeries in the past 3 years on her kidneys and bladder, all performed by Dr Smith. His office is courteous and professional and has gotten my daughter scheduled quickly for visits and surgeries, all of which were urgent. I absolutely trust his expertise and ability and have had no doubts on surgery day that he was the right surgeon for the job. I highly recommend him for pediatric urology.

Dr. Smith was/is nothing short of FANTASTIC! After a bad experience with another urologist i lost faith, however after my 6 month son had his first interaction with him I was at ease. Dr. Smith was incredibly patient with me, answered all of my questions and then some, my sons orchio pexi surgery was fast smooth and effective! I honestly was so happy we found him! Other than it being over a hour drive to get to him from me I can not complain and would take the drive 100x for Dr. smith! I’d recommend him in a heartbeat. His team was even a ray of sunshine. Thank you guys so much! This momma is very satisfied

Dr. Smith was exceptional! He has an incredible bedside manner - very calm and thorough in explaining everything that is going to happen and making sure to address every question or concern. Our son’s surgery was a year ago, and it went exceedingly well and has healed perfectly. I recommend Dr. Smith whole heartedly.

It is extremely hard to find a contact number for the office. All of my emails regarding appointments do not include the phone number in case I need to get in touch with the office. The website doesn’t provide a number either.

Professional staff, little wait time, most professional Dr. I have seen in a while. I hope I do not have to make another visit; however, if I do - I will go nowhere else.

I want to wait until my baby girl have her 2nd surgery in the summer of 2021 before writing a full review. But so far Dr. Edwin Smith has been a great doctor! He is so caring, thorough, careful and he makes sure you understand what is going on.. He really makes us parents feel comfortable. He is one of the best doctors my baby girl has. I am so happy he will be the one that will operate on my baby girl. I will update my baby girl's progress on my YouTube channel...Life of KnK.

So the sessions and surgery performed with this doctor and office are perfect. But having the office order supplies and send in prescriptions can be a challenge.
