Dr. L. Ryan Smart Curriculum Vitae

“Dr. Smart took excellent care of my son, who broke his arm just above the wrist. Being that my Son was 5 years old, he was worried about what wearing a full arm cast meant and whether it would hurt or not. Dr. Smart not only explained the entire process of putting on the cast and how long it will be on for, he also explained it in a way that eased his fears. From a Mother’s standpoint I could not have been happier with how comfortable Peter felt with Dr. Smart and the rest of his SOS staff.”
