Excellent in Every Way

I had eyelid surgery and it was very easy. Dr. Smithwick explained everything before and during and after the surgery. He did an excellent job and the staff - (all the Sandys) were excellent and very caring. I am very pleased with the result and recommend Dr. Smithwick and his staff very highly to anyone needing this procedure.

Entropion Repair

One woman in the staff seems to have woken up on the wrong side of the bed. On another note, Dr. Smithwick preformed a flawless surgery with Aloderm (artificial skin grapht) that was placed on the inside of my eyelid, then stitched my eye shut to un-flip my eyelid that was folded into my eye, causing my eyelashes to rub. This procedure was done on me 2 times before by a different surgeon who reconstructed the right side of my face when I shattered it. that surgeon specialized in Maxilliofacial Surgery. I couldn't be more satisfied with the results of my surgery preformed by Dr. Smithwick. Absolutely phenomenal doctor. He explained everything clearly, and calmly. His service was very quick. My surgery was scheduled almost exactly a month after my first in office visit. He also preformed a small eye lift to even my eyelids and they look perfectly semmetrycal. Would recommend to any person looking for a high quality ophthalmologist.
