Treated me like a human being and was willing to listen to and respect me. I didn't want sedation during cataract surgery, and he was OK with that. Most doctors would have already left on a power trip and done it 'their way' instead of mine.

i am a relatively new patient, in that i have had two exams. after the last exam (jan.2016) i was told my cataracts were ready for surgery. surgery was scheduled within a month. i am totally pleased with the results, as well as my new prescription. i have worn glasses since i was 17. i am now 74,

The Asheville EYE Associations group is very well organized and handled my check-in very smoothly. Dr. Smith was neat and friendly. He obtained good background information about my eyes by asking questions, and conducted a careful and through eye examination. Since I had no eye problems needing his attention, and I was taking good care of my eyes, Dr. Smith suggested my next appointment would be scheduled in two years. So they will call me to schedule an appointment in January, 2018!

I can enthusiastically recommend Dr. Smith for any kind of eye care. He is skillful, professional, and very kind, and he has an excellent staff. My recent cataract surgery was, thanks to all of them, virtually free of stress or discomfort. I feel so lucky to have found Dr. Smith.
