Dr. Smith was concerned about my "switching horses mid-stream". He really listened to my concerns, and explained everything he saw going on in my eye, in detail. My previous doctor was like prying open a clam, to get any information. Dr.Smith is very straight forward, open and honest. Dr. Smith is very professional and courteous. I got the second opinion, which I was seeking. Dr. Smith allowed me to make up my mind, without any pressure. My decision to switch has become comfortable. Rich V.
