Finally there is hope for my dry eyes in addition to Restasis. Instant rapport with Dr. Smith who really seemed to care about my dry eye problem. Professional, caring and knowledgeable doctor and staff.

I've used Dr. Smith for 12 years - and will use her as long as I breath...The latest interaction with her was for double cataract surgery and new glasses Rx. She is wonderful to work with, takes all the time needed to listen to me, and goes out of her way to make sure I am getting what I need. I have Never been 'over-tested' or over-charged as the one complainant listed here claims she was....never. I have recommended Dr. Smith to friends, family and acquaintances - and will continue to!

Unfortunately it will be my last visit. My family, friends, and myself will never ever go back again. Very very very bad experience. They charge me for a test that clearly I did not request, and they did not even do it properly. Misleading people! What a shame when you feel that you have been robbed by a doctor office. As for Dr. Smith, she is a very nice person, knowledgeable, and an excellent doctor. It is really sad that a patient been fooled...It is a shame!
