“Great Results!!! I felt comfortable from the very first appointment with Dr. Smith. He and his staff are so friendly and do such a great job!! I came to Dr. Smith for breast implants, after my 3rd child. I had two friends who had used him previously, with great results. Besides being a mom, I am a triathlete and was worried about the effect the surgery would have on my training. I healed very quickly with minimal scarring and am happy to say that I competed in my first 1/2 Ironman triathlon only 5 months after my surgery. Thanks, Dr. Smith!!”
