Trying to reach the office for any pre-surgery communication was difficult and stressful. I found Dr. Smith to be rude and arrogant and will never return! My advice ....stay away..

Dr Smith has done 2 MOHS procedures for me - one in Wellesley office and one in West Roxbury. He was great! He explained to me what he was doing and scars are minimal. I didn't talk a lot to Wellesley office staff so can't comment but my regular dermatologist is in West Roxbury and they are great!

I worked with Dr Smith many years ago when he was just starting out and when I worked for another derm we sent many patients to him for surgery. He even did surgery on my 90 yr old grandmother. He is an awesome surgeon. I have seen so many of his patients after surgery and they loved him. Is he arrogant? Yes, he is but I would go to him in a heartbeat for removal of skin cancer

Courteous staff. On time appointment. Doctor and staff kept me informed throughout the procedure. What more can one ask for in a practice.

My Wellesley-based dermatologist recommended I meet with Dr. Smith for a MOHS consultation. I called the office on Monday morning, February 26 to schedule an appointment. I was told by the receptionist that she would talk with Dr. Smith and call me back in a day or so. Over five weeks later, no callback. Not good.

I had my appointment today with Dr Smith. To be honest, I wasn't impressed with the scheduling. I must have received 3 phone calls prior. Due to limit space on this site to review, all I can say is DONT GO HERE! Dr is so arrogant. Staff unfriendly, and no communications within office. I actually left his chair it was so bad. Dr told me to find another dr than can perform surgery without a scar. Never in my life has this happened to me, where I actually left without surgery. Trust me on this revi

Have had two mohs procedures done by Dr. Smith. Last one was a 5 hour; 61 stiches procedure. He and his staff were great. He explained everything as he went along; checked with me often to see how I was, etc. Kept me comfortable, engaged and happy.
