(Updated July 14, 2022): I am now three months post hip replacement, and I can’t say enough great things about Dr. Spencer Smith. As a person, he is a kind a respectful man. As a surgeon, he is kind, knowledgeable, a gentle soul, and does excellent work. I couldn’t be happier with my surgery, recovery, new hip, and Dr. Spencer Smith!!! (Original Post): Just my initial appointment with Dr. Smith, but I couldn’t be happier. He has a great bedside manner and is a pleasure to speak with.
