Dr. Smith is wonderful. My daughter has been a patient for over a year. He and his staff are caring and considerate. My daughter required surgery, and I cannot believe the extraordinary measures that all of the staff involved took to ensure my daughter and we felt as comfortable and well cared for as possible. Dr. Smith is very thorough and truly made us feel as though we were his top priority. He never rushed us or made us feel as though our tremendously long list of questions were annoying or a waste of his time. If you are looking for a pediatric urologist in the North Georgia area, I highly recommend Dr. Smith. He is definitely one of a kind!

Dr. Smith was excellent. He broke down explanation into layman's terms and was upfront, honest and encouraging to my son. We are purposely going back to the same location and doctor, even though it is far from us, because we were both satisfied.

Overall our experience was positive. Everyone was very friendly and we didn’t have to wait long for anything. I wish I could remember her name, but the lady I talked to on the phone when I made my appointment was honestly one of the best at her job that I’ve ever talked to. It has to be difficult to be patient and understanding with people all day long.

Dr Edwin Smith and his nurse Gerda have been seeing my daughter since the birth. My daughter is now 12 and has had several surgeries which Dr Smith has performed. I have been very impressed with Dr Edwin Smith since the first day he diagnosed my daughter. He is very thorough, and has always made sure we understood and felt comfortable with every single procedure throughout the years. I would most definitely recommend him!!!
