Ratings for Dr. Leon G. Smith
This Luminary Angel Galen of Infectious Disease Medicine most Noble man, wondrous mind and comforting smile is no longer with us (*12/19/16) and his amazing diagnostic acumen will sorely be missed by Galen's and patients as well! Five Stars were truly not befitting of his enormous talent, he deserved to be rated in Super Nova's, Quasar's and their billions of stars Galactic terminology! Rest In Peace Dear Sir, May we, meet again in Heaven! You will always be loved and remembered by all you touched.
Dr. Leon G. Smith, Sr. Is a genius. He saved my life 3 times. In 1994 after being sick for months, I saw Dr. Leon & he looked at me and immediately knew I had a rare bacterial/fungal infection Actinomycosis. In 2011 along with his son Steven he cared for me at St. Michaels with a resistant case of c-diff that left me malnourished that some of my protein levels equaled someone in a Nazi concentration camp. I survived and thrived after that illness thanks to Dr. Leon and his son Dr. Steven. In April 2013 he diagnosed me with a life threatening staff infection in an abdominal incision. Again, before the test results were in he correctly diagnosed me. Dr. Leon is an 82 year old gentleman with a mind that is sharp as a tack. He has true love & compassion for his fellow man.
Dr. Leon Smith SR is the first infectious disease specialist in the state of NJ. I have used him for 7 years and he is the BEST ID specialist I have been to yet. He is in Roseland on Tueday afternoons and at St Michaels M T W F. He treats anyone that needs him although he has many many patients. I personally prefer Dr. Leon Senior's bedside manner over his son Steven Smith MD, his son is still a very good ID specialist and called brilliant like his father by his peers. You can't go wrong using Dr. Leon Smith Sr. for infectious disease. Dr. Leon Smith Jr is maternal/fetal medicine so don't get them mixed up. Four of his five children are doctors. I give him 5 stars for his caring manner and attempt to make everyone well that he possibly can. For a history, read this article. http://blog.nj.com/iamnj/2007/06/leon_smith.html
