Breast Augmentation

The whole team was super kind and careful to be sure I felt comfortable the whole visit. Dr. Smoot had wonderful caring bedside manner. Very pleased. I fully intend to schedule, just ironing out dates I can take off from work.

Doctor Smoot and the entire staff were amazing. I felt comfortable right from the start and I’m so so happy with my results. They took great care of me and I have nothing but positive things to say about my procedure.

Professional, friendly, quality.

Dr. Smoot listened to what I thought were the main issues, his recommendations were understood. Clearly described (summary, not technical) the procedure and desired result.

Breast Implant Removal

Dr. Smoot's office is always very accommodating known him for 30 years. I had implants with him on 2 occasions. Now I need them removed and a lift performed and I trust him and his staff with my care. I am traveling from Georgia. That is how much I trust him.

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Smoot is very professional. He listened to my concerns and was very helpful.

Breast Lift

Dr. Smoot and the nurses were all very friendly. He did not pressure me to get anything done that wasn't ideal for me. The surgery itself was very successful and I feel much better after this breast lift. [Single best thing is...] The results were fantastic.

I received a date for my initial consultation immediately, within 2 days. I was treated with respect and understanding. The results were amazing.

The office was welcoming and relaxing. The staff was supportive and professional and Dr. Smoot made you feel comfortable and heard. He took the time to explain the process, listen to your concerns and to answer your questions. The entire experience was excellent.

Breast Implant Removal

Needed to have breastfeeding removal.

Breast Implant Revision

Dr. Smoot and his staff made me feel 100% comfortable and I knew despite a fluke complication, I knew I was in the BEST care. When I was dissatisfied with the end result after my second surgery, Dr. Smoot allowed me to change my implant size at no additional cost to ensure I was satisfied. I am 110% happy with the end result now!

Breast Implant Revision

Previous breast surgery with Dr. Smoot. Very informative and provided all information and options for my situation. Friendly, efficient staff.

Breast Augmentation

Indicated that most important part was to feel cared for. Smoot’s demeanor made me feel like just another number and a waste of time. Was not receptive to what I indicated I was looking for. Kept relating my results to how other people would view them, when my MO is an internal satisfaction. Made references to a boyfriend without any regard to get to know me and dismissed my attempts to show the “look” I was going for. If the selling point is “You get what you get”, then why would I pay for a more expensive physician? Failed to indicate the value of his service or why he should be selected. Picked another physician who is actually more expensive, but at least aligned with what I was communicating and made me feel heard. Shelly was nothing short of amazing though. She truly brings balance to this terrible experience. Give that lady a raise for making me think twice.

Liposculpture

Very easy to make an appointment. Staff extremely friendly. Doctor very matter of fact and honest and knowledgeable
