Patient Comments (2)

Dr Smythe is certainly a competent specialist. I would not recommend her only because she practices primarily by reviewing files while an optometrist sees patients. This can create as much as a 3- week lag time between when testing is performed and patients are informed of Dr Smythe's assessment....more
