I have been taking my son to see Dr.Edwin Smith since 2015. He is very knowledgeable and empathetic. Absolutely LOVE his nurse; Gerda. Love how they can explain things in a way I can understand. I definitely recommend GA Urology if you need this specialty.

Dr smith is hands down INCREDIBLE. He has great bedside manner, explains everything in layman‘s terms for a non-medical person to understand, very friendly and has always been on time for his appointments with me. I am so thankful that we were recommended to him by a friend whose child also sees him. I highly recommend him

We came to Dr. Smith after my infant son’s failed pyeloplasty surgery (with a different surgeon). He immediately made us feel comfortable and had a plan (different from the first doctor) for a successful repeat surgery. Parents- do your research! I did hours and hours of this and so thankful we found Dr. Edwin Smith. He’s kind, knowledgeable and a great surgeon. He never made us feel rushed or insignificant and answered all of our questions in a way we could understand. We also love his nurse! When you find a nurse that has worked so, so many years with the same doctor you know that he’s not only a good doctor but a good person! When we switched doctors upon our first meeting (and it was zoom 2020) we knew we found the right doctor for our son! Our son is now thriving and has two healthy, functioning kidneys. Thank you Dr. Smith and staff!

Dr. Smith is the best of the best! He has treated both of my children with urinary issues and operated on one so far. His bedside manner is unmatched. We are so grateful for his services and his office. Pleasant experiences both with his office and in the hospital.

Dr. Edwin Smith was very knowledgeable and really made me and my family feel comfortable. When I found out my little one had to have surgery I was nervous because you never know what could happen but my little one recovered and is just fine. By the second surgery I felt much more relaxed because I knew we were in good hands. Thank you for all of your help and blessings to you and your family.

It’s been a great impactful, remarkable, wonderful and memorable experience meeting or knowing Doctor Edwin Smith and his team especially his manager – Justice. I got Dr. Smith’s referrer through a great friend of mine. My first encounter with him was a virtual consultation done with my family from Nigeria before meeting with him one-on-one in Atlanta. Dr. Edwin A. Smith is one of the Best Pediatric Surgeon I have ever met (even my Doctor confirmed this) and looking at the level of experience, knowledge-base and expertise he displayed in addressing us during the first encounter and throughout the Procedures with follow up services shows his High Level of Competence and Excellent Service delivery to humanity, he and his team members at Georgia Urology are ONE OF THE WORLD BEST UROLOGIST!!!.
