I had a very good experience in his office. His staff was great and I could tell that not only did the doctor enjoy working there but his office staff did as well.

My experience with Excel Eye Center and Dr. Smalley was great! It's a very calming environment with a good staff. Dr. Smalley is very knowledgeable and patient with all of my questions.

Our out-of-town granddaughter got fireworks in her eye. I'd previously seen Dr. Smalley and found him to be wonderful. He was magnificent with our granddaughter - so patient and kind as he removed the fireworks and confidently calmed her fears (and mine!) Amazing doctor! Very impressed.
