Dr Smit was very knowledgeable and listened to our concerns and explained very well what he would do in surgery and put our mind at ease. And when I explained we do not take blood, he was very respectful and said he was a very careful surgeon and did not see the need for blood but would use alternatives we requested if it got down to that...we /I'm confident in his skills as a surgeon.
