The staff, NP, and Dr. Smith were all wonderful! We came in for a consult for a procedure for our infant son and the attention and information we received was great. We are confident in the care our son will receive. We also appreciated how friendly the staff was - it’s rare to find any practice where every single person you interact with is genuinely friendly!
