What Our Patients Are Saying
"Dr. Kira Smith is my hero. I found myself in the ER under very traumatic circumstances and was comforted by her warmth and compassionate nature. Dr. Smith performed my emergency surgery through all hours of the night, kept my family informed, and demonstrated great continuity of care throughout my stay by visiting me daily and emailing on her days off. She also saw me for months of wound care and kept in touch once I was discharged to complete my recovery at home. Dr. Smith's medical expertise, care, concern, and compassion are all five stars! I even had a second surgery with her 6 months later. I highly and confidently recommend Dr. Smith."
"Dr. Kelly is a brilliant, caring doctor and surgeon. He is a miracle worker! I had a critical leg wound and he not only saved my leg, but he is now treating the scar! I cannot imagine what might have happened had I not been under the care of Dr. Kelly!"
"Absolutely wonderful, he save the life of my husband!"
