Patient Comments (1)
in san diego, california |
Dr. Smith has been named to The Top Doctors in San Diego for the past 8 consecutive years, an honor bestowed upon fewer than forty physicians across all medical specialties. He saved me from going blind. I was poor and homeless and without medical insurance. But he accepted a payment plan and was very helpful and supportive. God bless him.
