ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Many doctors were watching the President's address closely Wednesday Night.

WALB watched the speech with Doctor Christopher Smith, an Albany general surgeon

He says insurance reform is needed, and it needs to be well-thought out.

Smith supports more competition but doesn't want too much government intervention.

"I don't want us to become a Canadian or an English system I've had colleges to train there and one told me the attendant came into the operating room and stopped the operation and the patient died because he was too old to operate on, that's appalling to me," said Dr. Christopher Smith, General Surgeon.

Doctor Smith wants President Obama to stick to his promise not to sign a bill that isn't paid for.

He hopes Congress spends more time on ironing out the details.
