What People Say About Us!

I’ve been seeing Dr. Smith for almost ten years and I can honestly say that every experience has been excellent. I’ve had skin cancer scares, acne treatment, laser hair removal, Botox, restylane, if they offer it, I’ve done it. Not only is Dr. Smith an incredible doctor, she had obviously handpicked her staff to insure top notch care to all of her patients. When a medical office has the same staff every time you go in, year after year, you know they’re doing something right. I have recommended Dr.Smith and her office more times than I can count. My entire family sees her and we are not going anywhere:)
Might I add that after reading previous reviews that it is a shame that such cruel and malicious reviews have been written due to a rescheduled appointment.
If you’re looking for a dermatologist or a cosmetic procedure that they offer, you won’t regret scheduling with Dr. Smith:)
