He's the BEST! I would recommend him to anyone!

Dr Smith and the entire staff at the Retina Institute see many patients on a given day. That can result in a hurried and seemingly not complete investigation of the reason for the visit. I have had two appointments with Dr. Smith and crew and can state unequivocally that they, as a group, take their time, do not hurry the patient, do all the tests and investigations that seem to be required and absolutely instill confidence in the patient that what the Institute has done is correct.

Highly recommend Dr. Bradley Smith. I had a retina detachment a couple of years ago & was terrified when my opthalmologist in southern IL said that I needed surgery asap. My husband & I drove to St Louis on a treacherous, snowy nght. We arrived in SL about 9 pm & they were prepared. Dr Bradley T. Smith was my surgeon. He made me feel at ease before & after the procedure. Staff at Retina Institute was excellent & very knowledgeable. I am doing great...thanks to Dr. Smith & his associates!

Dr. Smith treated my mother under an emergency situation and we couldn't be happier with the care my mother received from Dr Smith and his entire staff. Professional, courteous, and supremely knowledgeable! We give Dr. Smith our highest recommendation!

A wonderful person and doctor. Caring, compassionate, bright and treats every person with dignity. This man is a highly skilled doctor of ophthalmoloy. Dr. Smith has performed emergency surgery on my eyes several times. I respect him and his knowledge and skills. Without his help, I would not see. Who cares about waiting a few more minutes in the waiting room when you know this man might be helping someone keep their eyesight? Thanks Dr. Smith for help!
