Katy Zlatnisky

"It's hard to put into words what Dr. Lee Smith has given us. Our daughter would not be here if it wasn't for him. Katy was diagnosed in-utero with a lymphatic malformation of the right side of her neck. Something we have never even heard of before. He reassured us whatever situation may arise with Katy he would be able to handle it. When others painted a grim picture he gave us hope. He saved Katy several times from a tracheotomy He continued to care for Katy through moderate hearing loss due to the mass and most recently the resection of the mass. Katy is no longer considered a critical airway for the first time in her life. She's 3 1/2 years old. He has been the most caring and confident amazing doctor to our daughter and to us. To find a doctor who has the gift of medicine with the loving care and compassion of children and their families is truly a blessing. Our daughter was not just another baby or a number to Dr. Smith, she was Katy. No one is more cherished in this world than someone who lightens the burden of another. I only hope that I can touch someones life the way he has touched mine."

Forever Grateful,

Patricia Zlatniski
