“Dr Smillie has been outstanding over the past six months treating me for a broken foot. He should be commended for his ability to listen to the patient and in a very understanding way answers the questions my wife and I had about my problem (the broken foot) and the treatment I will be receiving. He explained in detail what I could expect and was right on with each week of the healing process. Dr. Smillie I am sure has a busy schedule, yet we never felt rushed during our visits. I am in PT at this time but still being seen by Dr. Smillie and his staff. The support staff around Dr. Smillie have also been outstanding. The doctors assistants, the x-ray technicians especially Chris (I hope I remembered his name right) have been great as well. I have already passed on to a number of people if they are looking for an excellent doctor and facility its Dr. Smillie and Vero Orthopaedics.”
