“I have been fortunate to utilize Holzer Wound Care Center for several needs,” shared Bryce Smith. “The staff is so good to me. Each are friendly and wonderful; they truly treat me like a family member.”
Over the past five years, Smith has had several wounds that has warranted a visit to the Wound Care Center. “Dr. Fisher is my primary caregiver, and he has provided my care at the Wound Care Center. He and all the Wound Center staff are pleasant, helpful and genuinely concerned about the patient’s welfare. We are so appreciative of all they do for me and my family.”
Smith leads a very active lifestyle, for which optimal health is necessary. He is the Senior Vice President at Hilliard Lyons in Gallipolis, Ohio, and enjoys spending time with family while hunting, fishing, golfing, gardening, and boating. He and his wife, Nancy, reside in Gallipolis, have three children, and seven grandchildren. “I’ve coached baseball/softball for over 50 years. I enjoy being a part of my community, and with Holzer Wound Care Center’s effective treatments, I am able to keep doing the things I love.”
