The one hundred honoree: Matthew Smith, MD, PhD

Mass General Giving

During the two and a half years that my husband was under Dr. Smith’s care, we developed confidence and trust in him. It quickly became apparent that his research was cutting edge; however he was always willing to answer our questions about alternative treatments brought to our attention by well-meaning family and friends. We looked forward to seeing him as a friend. He always asked after my husband’s interests and pets. He inspired and/or expected the like qualities from his staff and, without fail, they delivered.

For advancing the fight against prostate cancer so that other men may live longer and for his compassion to my husband so that he accepted the end of his life without anguish, I recommend that Dr. Matthew R. Smith be considered for the honor of one in one hundred.
