I am a retired dectective with 29 years in the NYPD and was diagnosed with tonsil cancer after working at ground zero. While under his care Dr. Smtih treated me as one of his own family member he displayed empathy compassion and honesty during and after my neck surgery that he performed. Words cannot begin to express my feelings when it comes to him. It was a very difficult and dark time for me. Even now he is still holding my hand on my follow-up visits. To tell you the truth I would follow him over a cliff if that's what he thought to be best (smile). Dr. Smith was God sent and I am truly blessed.
In 2003 I was suffering from severe headaches. Additionally I was experiencing intense pain on one side of my face. Dr Jonathan Smith patiently asked me several questions regarding this condition. Dr. Smith concluded that I was suffering from Cluster headaches. At the time this condition was not widely known. Within two hours from my visit with Dr Smith and the prescription he provided my cluster headaches were manageable. Dr. Smith took the time to ask the right questions and had the knowledge to diagnose my problem. No other doctor before him was able to diagnose my condition. Subsequently my entire family have seen Dr Smith for their medical issues and enjoyed the same results. Dr Smith is personableand demonstrates professionalism and most importantly to the highest degree knowledgeable in his field.
For years my sister lived with a large mass that grew and grew depleting her energy self-esteem and quality of life. My sister stopped looking at herself in the mirror and contemplated suicide. Then a co-worker told my mom about a head and neck surgeon name Dr. Jonathan Smith who specializes in tumors of the head and neck. My sister had no idea that the day she and my mom met with Dr. Smith that the lives of our entire family would change forever. Dr. Smith worked on my sister for what seemed like half the day. The incision went from her ear canal up and behind her ear and down making the scar nearly invisible. When she wears her hair down it’s really hard to notice. She had no complications and we all found Dr. Smith to be clear willing to spend the time to explain the surgery to my sister and our family and he was very accessible. My sister got married two months ago. Thank you Dr. Jonathan Smith.
