Thank you, Dr. Smith!

My shoulder is normal again, no more pain, no more limited use! You can't even see the scars from surgery. Dr. Smith was personable and explained everything to my wife and I clearly. His staff is amazing also.

Recommend him to everyone!

Wonderful, professional doctor. I had a disk slip and I was in excruciating pain. He clearly described my condition, prognosis and all my options. Nothing was sugar-coated and he didn't pressure me into making a decision. The surgery went splendid and I'm back to new a month later.

This monster is a complete hack and should be jailed for what he did to my brother. He again left an infection in his leg in a surgery 18 years ago. since then my brother has had to declare bankruptcy, lost his job and has been cut short of living a full life like he was before his accident. Healthcare people in the area refer to him as BIRRELL THE BUTCHER. If you have to see this guy, don't. If you get referred to him, run the other way. Dr. Frankenstein would be a better choice. Rot in hell Birrell.

Overall

Incredibly poor responsiveness to critical care decisions with absolutely poor surgical skill. Has the highest rate of infection in SLO county. He decided that the best intervention for the infection I had post surgery was "rest it" yet the infectious disease doctor who I saw at the hospital under advice from a friend who was a nurse said "it is a good thing you came in when you did, otherwise you likely would have lost your finger or needed some significant reconstruction. I'm glad you came to see us now so you can keep your finger." ONE OF THE WORST BUTCHERS I HAVE EVER SEEN and despite tons of rehab with the best in the business I'm left with about 75% function in my dominant hand. Wish Dr. Sima would've been on call that day!!!

When I dislocated my shoulder I really had no idea what to do. My arm was uncomfortable after it was relocated and I needed to see a professional. I am so happy I found this office. I saw Dr. Birrell Smith and he put me at ease.

great job

I recently ran my first ever marathon, and although it was exhausting and left me quite sore, there was absolutely no knee pain whatsoever. As I was approaching that finish line chute at the end of the 26.2 miles I ran, I remembered thinking how extraordinary it was that I was able to do this considering my knee was obliterated before he performed the operation on me 15 months ago. Thank you Dr. Smith for all your hard work and rehabilitation!

I had many pains and difficulties over the course of a year after the operation, but I found Dr. Smith to be incredibly attentive every time I visited him.

Dr. Smith was very straightforward with his questions and the exam. Once I explained my problem, he knew exactly the cause and with a few simple tests, he was able to prescribe a treatment. I liked his no-nonsense approach and he was polite and friendly throughout.

I have recommended Dr. Smith to friends and family. After a little bit of rehab and physical therapy, we made the decision to go with surgery. After the surgery, I couldn't believe how much better I felt!

I had a torn rotator cuff and it was difficult to raise my arm above my shoulder. He got me in right away! Dr. Smith gave me good, clear advice and had me in physical therapy immediately after my procedure. I’m working out in the pool now and can do household activities without pain.
