“Dr. Smith was friendly but professional… he had a unique balance that I haven’t seen in many doctors. And the staffs at both the hospital and the surgery center were extremely efficient. I didn’t feel like another number. Post-op, we took a conservative approach to recovery and now you can hardly see the scar inside my elbow.” ~ Dawn Milbut, TOSM patient
