great job

6/5/2019
Dr Smith knew my situation well. He advised me to exercise, lose weight and he inquired about my sleep apnea which I'm treating with my C-Pap machine each and every night. This is directly due Dr. Smith and his team of professionals who suspected and then recommended I have the sleep study. My life is better today because of his efforts.

6/5/2019
Dr. Smith is just wonderful - kind, compassionate and really seems to care about how I am doing. He takes the time to listen and responds appropriately (ie - he isn't just trying to get done). I would highly recommend him to anyone!

5/15/2019

5/10/2019
Dr. Smith as well as his PA and his nurse whose names I forgot are totally world class professionals. There are not enough superlatives to describe these people. On a scale of 1-10 they are 26. They are that good. I can go on about how satisfied I am and confidence in their ability to fix me going forward.

5/8/2019
Dr. Smith and his support staff are always top notch.

5/6/2019
Dr. Smith is the best. He shows concern and compassion. He is exemplary in his "bed side manner" and takes time to listen. He is genuinely concerned for his patients' recovery and well being. I couldn't ask for a better experience from him.

5/1/2019

5/1/2019
Dr. Smith is an absolute asset to UPMC. Unfortunately because of the issues between UPMC and Highmark I will no longer be able to see him as I have BCBS. This is upsetting because my last procedure was part of a study and I cannot visit Dr. Smith if there is an issue. Shame on UPMC and Highmark.

5/1/2019
Dr Smith is wonderful. I would trust him with my life.

4/25/2019

Dr. Smith is competent, respectful, friendly, down to earth and compassionate--everything I am looking for in a care provider. He treated my (deceased for many years) mother for many years. When I needed a cardiologist I immediately thought of him and asked my PCP to see if he would take me. I suspect he has a full case load, but did accept me. In our first visits we mentioned my mother and spoke kindly of her.

6/5/2017
As always, very accommodating, caring and excellent service
