This was one of my best surgery's that i have had. Dr. Patrick Smith was an excellent Doctor. He walked me and my husband through what would take place and how i would feel after words. He is such a Good Doctor and I have been telling people about Him already.
I am from WV, and I came to Dr. Smith for my back pain. He is an excellent doctor he not only explained my back problems but also was concerned about my neck pain. I wish the doctors in my area were more like him. He took the time to talk with us and explained things very well. I will recommend him to family and friends.
Very good experience from pre surgery appointment through follow up appointment after surgery.
raised alot of question regarding the past 10 yrs since my injury history. A very 1st but we'll recieved.
Dr. Smith is the best in the country!!!!
care was very good
I was a new patient. although dr reviewed my tests, he might have spent 5 min with me
Dr. Smith is excellent. He listens and explains everything very well.
EVERYONE WAS EXCEPTIONAL. Best Doctors office visit ever, anywhere. I found the entire staff to be very helpful, courteous, friendly and professional. I especially liked the way Dr. Smith explained everything in detail and answered all my questions. Even after I left the exam room I asked to see him again because I forgot some questions, and they were very accommodating. In fact when I got home I remembered and even more important question and Dr. Smith called me the very next morning and graciously took the time to explain his answers to my concerns. Bravo. Thank you.
The entire experience was a good one. I will definately return to Dr. Smith if this issue occurs again.
Dr. Patrick Smith was very professional & attentative in talking about all my concerns and future treatments. I was very satisfied in how he handled the visit.
Everything went very well Good advice.
this is the very best Doctor's office I have ever had the pleasure dealing with from the registration staff to the Doctor himself
The only thing is that I felt like I was being rushed.
Dr. Smith was very nice and his staff was also.
I SURE AM GLAD THAT dr Smith was referred to me.
He listened carefully and asked questions making sure he got everything right with my problem. He explained my problem with the x-rays so I could make an informed decision about how we would handle my problem. I am very impressed with Dr Smith.
Dr. Smith is very empathetic and understanding he wants to help you and do surgery as a last resort. He listens well and is very attentive I really love this guy.
Dr. Smith is the only physician in the past 20 years that explained the circumstances causing my pain and suggested a course of treatment that has provided much relief from chronic pain which is now mild.
I appreciated getting a timely appointment. I was very pleased with the way options for my care were presented and discussed. No pressure was put on me to agree to anything that I was not comfortable with in my care plan.
Dr. Patrick Smith changed my life for the better. He cured my pain and made it possible for me to be a better father and husband.
excellent staff the ladies up at the desks are great
This was the first time I had the opportunity to have Doctor Smith review my current health concerns and problems. I applaud Doctor Smith for his wonderful mannerism and concern in assisting me with my health concerns, and his prompt return calls to relax my health concerns. I commend him for the great professional character he always displayed for me as the worried patient. The UPMC Medical Group should certainly be proud to have such a well gifted and talented doctor serving within their hospital and professional group. Thanks Doc Smith for the great service you provided to me.
I always receive the best possible care. Everyone on staff is very polite and have a genuine concern for my well being.
One of the best of the best
Dr. Smith was very interested in giving me options to consider along with his recommendations. I appreciated that greatly. He explained my options to the point of understanding. He was very personal and very professional and created a very high level of comfort and trust for me.
Dr smith is the best. he did an amazing job with my surgery and piecing my tattoo back together. people are amazed when I show them his work. I have recommended him to several people.
Even when I come prepared with every question I want to ask, we never get to discuss everything because it always feels like he's in a rush.
It was my first visit to this office and Dr. Smith. I was impressed that the office could find time for me. My knee was injured and I was in pain and Dr. Wisneski's office called and they squeezed me in. It seems to be a very large practice and I thought it was run efficiently but still had some vibes of being a small caring place.
My experiences during my stay were overall very outstanding.
Excellent - could not be better. Special thanks to Karen!
good bedside manner..easy to talk with...hopefully feels this is as important as I do
Every thing was great
Really top-notch team and well-run office. My health problem was solved thoroughly.
They were all excellent that I had the opportunity to be engaged with.
Dr. Smith was kind and knowledgeable, very considerate and thorough.
Always treated like a valued patient.

Doctor Smith was easy to understand and was very concerned about my problems . I am completely satisfied with my appointment .
My Doc was amazing! He LISTENED to what I was saying and knew exactly where to start to help me feel better. He did not try to RUSH through our appointment. Members of my family recommended that I go see him. I am so glad that I took there advise. I will recommended him myself. He is wonderful!
My visit was just great. They took a back X-ray and he told me what I have. Dr Smith is Amazing to me. He told me he will help me get better.he has me set up with therapy and I'm going to another specialist that will help also

Best service rendered to me for my back problems in 9 years
dr smith us a very kind, caring physician.a great assets to UPMC
I highly recommend Dr. Patrick Smith. He answers all questions and explains everything on a level that you can understand. He never seems to be in a hurry to get to the next patient and does it all with a smile. He gave quality of life back to my father with the surgery he performed. Can't thank him enough!!! Thank you Dr. Smith!
this "provider" inn my opinion is one of the best of not the very best doctors in our region. he has excellent bedside manners, explains everything in easy to understand terminology. he listens to everything I had to say and addressed any questions or concerns I may have had. this provider has completed several surgeries on me in the past 10+- years and I personally would not go to another doctor in this field and would absolutely recommend him to all of my family friends and acquaintances. he repaired the issues that I had when several other doctors could not. I have the utmost confidence respect and belief in him and his staff. his staff is also very kind friendly and professional. they always go above and beyond to help with whatever issue I may be experiencing. they are all the best!!!!
I had a very good experience with this provider. answered all my questions and concerns.
Dr. Smith is an outstanding doctor and person. Very professional.
Very good relationship with this doctor
My first visit. Excellent care and follow up
Dr. Smith was very professional and knowledgeable. And, also very friendly.
my doctor did great job. my arm feel great after the treatment he gave me.
Dr. Smith is an extremely compassionate and professional. After a few visits and various attempts to correct my situation without surgery, it was decided that it appeared that surgery was the answer. Dr. Smith and his staff were more than anyone could ask for, as far as their degree of professionalism.
they were as good as I could expect them to be
I was well informed and given every opportunity to question or comment. Very pleased..
I have great confidence in Dr. Smith. He is very knowledgeable and competent.
all good experiences!
Dr Smith was in and out of the room frequently and seemed caught up with other issues although he was attentive to what I was saying when in my presence.
Dr. Smith is my hero. After back surgery last year I can walk and enjoy my life pain free now. He really is a great surgeon and a human being. You should be proud that he is a doctor in your employ. I already recommended him to several friends and they had surgery also. Never a bad thing to say about this doctor.
very understanding and gave me good information good "bedside manner"
Dr Smith was very explanatory regarding my diagnosis and future treatment. Although surgery appears to be in the future for me, he did not insist that I have the procedure done, yet told me the decision was mine, to talk it over with family and inform me as to my decision, after explaining the possible risks involved.
This was my first visit with Dr. Smith and I couldn't have picked a better physician for my problem. He listened, he definitely cared, and he definitely is going to help me with my problem. He was very, very curtious and respectfull.
Dr. Smith is precise and to the point, answers questions, listens to me and shows concern for my other health issues.
Very good Dr Smith is a outstanding doctor and a very concerning person, a very good person!
I can honestly say Dr Patrick Smith is a great surgeon great man did a good job,tell me the truth about everything before he did it and really really took care of me...I'd say give him a raise but I'm pretty sure he's making a lot of money
This provider originally treated my husband for a fractured hip many years ago, and when I started having back issues, he is the only doctor I trusted to treat my problem.
