Ratings for Dr. Jan De Waal Smith
While I believe that Dr. Smith is a competent surgeon, I also believe that he recommends hysterectomy more often than not, in treating women with uterine conditions. I did my own research then questioned his opinion. He was very dismissive & basically walked out. I sought a second opinion, who then conferred with the B.C. Cancer Agency & their recommendation was no hysterectomy! Ladies beware, there is lots of information out there, do your research!
My daughter was breach and small and was referred to him for my c-section. I loved the ultrasound every time I went to his office it was nice to see baby. He actually predicted my daughter to be 5.5lbs or 6 lbs when she will be born but she was small she was only 4.15 when she was born but perfect healthy. I thought he did a great job stapling me up and my scar healed very nicely. Overall I would 100% recommend him. No complaints.
Delivered my first baby via cesarean. Was a great experience, i left hospital 48 hrs later confidently... and healed quicker than most dr's expect. My scar is hardly noticeable and I'm positive all of the above is because he is an excellent doctor. He is also very kind and always happy to answer any questions I may have. He is scheduled to deliver baby #2 tomorrow and i feel very lucky to have him again!
Amazing experience. Friendly, respectful, great beside manner. this experience was consistent for each visit. iud, quick diagnosis of a problem and surgery. The surgery happened on aThursday, home Friday, minimal pain, quick follow up. minimal incisions. Very happy
Dr Smith is my favorite doctor! I have recently moved to Osoyoos and am considering coming back to Chilliwack when I get pregnant again just so he can deliver my baby. I have tons of medical issues and I require a csection with any births I have. Dr Smith took me on as a high risk patient and saw me every 4-6 weeks to make sure I was doing okay. He let me see my baby on the ultrasound to make sure he was okay. He was very sympathetic to issues I had during pregnancy. As for the csection delivery, he is very professional, listened to my needs and followed up with me diligently in the hospital. I respect him so much and appreciate everything he has done for my family. Best doctor ever! Thanks again Dr Smith for everything!
Dr. Smith ended up delivering my baby in 2006. baby had cord wrapped around next and needed out fast. Had to do with forceps. He delivered him quickly and safely. I ripped terribly and he did an amazing job with the stitching...No scarring and you wouldn't even know today that I delivered a baby. Excellent bedside manner as well. If you live in Chilliwack and need to see an OBGYN, he is the one to go to hands down
