I have been seeing Cindi at Dr Sonda Smith's office. She has been wonderful. I am very happy with my entire experience there. I have learned so much from Cindi and I trust all her recommendations. I saw another dermatologist in Lafayette before I came to Dr Sonda's office. Not only were they more expensive but I left in tears. They did not listen to me or help me in any way. I will never go anywhere else. Everyone in the office is so nice.

Absolutely love Dr. Smith & her staff. I've had many services done here over the years & have always been impressed & totally satisfied! Lip injections are my favorite. She's extremely quick (60 seconds or less) & consistently perfect at getting them 100% symmetrical! Take it from a very picky makeup artist...if your wanting your lips done or any cosmetic procedure then she's your go-to-doctor!
I love Dr. Smith and her staff. She is busy because she is the BEST! And she hand picks her employees because she wants them to be the best as well. I had a skin cancer scare. I called the office in tears and they saw me the next day. Thank God it was nothing.

My wife and I have been seeing Dr Smith and her staff for several years. I've had some skin cancers and my wife has received laser treatments. I can recommend her office 100%. Besides the excellent treatment I have never seen a doctors office that runs so efficiently. They always see us on time and treat us quickly. Maybe she should consult other doctors on how to run a office.

I've been a patient here for years but once I had broken out in a terrible rash on my face & had to wait two weeks before being seen & they didn't even attempt to work me in. I made the mistake of having lip fillers done here & ended up with uneven, lumpy lips & a hematoma. She also injected me without numbing me & told me "you sure are picky" when I went back for my touch up & expressed my concern on the uneven spots! She basically rushed in & rushed out & was SO RUDE! I WILL NEVER GO BACK!

I was there with my teenage son for acne. We never saw Dr. Smith. We always had the nurse practitioner. She spoke to my son exclusively. While I can appreciate that he needed to speak for himself, the reality is that parental supervision is crucial at this age. We spent a lot of money each visit on several medications that were seldom used properly. I would not recommend this office to anyone. I regret the time and money that was wasted there.
