Patient Comments (3)

Dr Smith is very thorough and respected by other providers. I am in the healthcare professions as well and extremely happy with my care management. I have regular annual appointments as well as had 2 separate eye injuries which required Emergency Room attention by Dr Smith. Highly recommended.
