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!!!

During check-out I asked for an excuse to return my 4 month old to daycare as the facility requires one for late drop off. The person that checked me out acted as if it was an inconvenience because he was not of school age and she thought that was a ridiculous policy due to his age.

I wanted to wait until my son had his surgery to give my full honest review... I am SO happy I was reccomend to dr smith for my sons undescended testicle! He is obviously very knowledgeable and is honestly very comforting. He saw I was very VERY nervous about my son having surgery and made sure that i knew "even if it is a very easy and straightforward procedure, we don't take anesthesia lightly". I feel as though any other dr would brush off the fact that it IS scary and it IS serious no matter the surgery. He even reassured me on the day of his surgery that again, its a very straight forward low risk surgery but its normal to feel scared. Again, he was so reassuring that I felt comfortable knowing he was with my son. He also explains things in a way that we understood and felt comfortable and without questions. His actual practice we were seen at to begin with was well put together and very fast to see us and tell us what needed to be done. He explained all the next steps and left nothing out. I felt confident scheduling my sons surgery with him and would do it again. His wound looks VERY well done and looks like it will leave minimal scaring. THANK YOU Dr Smith!

The only comment I have is that it took a bit longer than I hoped for the dr to come into the exam room once we were taken in. My son is 2 years old and the games/books were not enough to entertain him for that period of time.

We were there for a second opinion and although I imagine the doctor was not aware it was a second opinion, I wish we could have known that an additional ultrasound would be needed by the doctor so we could have had it done prior to our visit with the doctor. Although I was very happy with our visit and the doctors evaluation I felt we left somewhat in the same place as our previous visit.
