Patient Comments (1)
Cambridge, MA |
Dr. Smith has consistently shown both extreme competence and care when I have met with her. One readily senses that she is a scientist with a heart. She once worked through the lion's share of her lunch hour in order to resolve an unexpected eye concern of mine. And she communicates in an understandable, thoughtful way and encourages one to ask a question if something is unclear. To my knowledge Dr. Smith has been formally recognized as one of Boston's superb doctors.
