Our commitment to you
Retina Consultants specializes in treatment of diseases that affect the retina, vitreous, and macula. We have earned a reputation for providing the highest quality, compassionate, patient-centered care. Founded in 1978 by Harold A. Woodcome, Jr, MD, and Caldwell W. Smith, MD, ours is the oldest "retina-only" practice in Southeastern New England. We continually strive to serve our patients’ best interests by practicing evidence-based medicine and utilizing the latest proven technologies.
Our doctors are board certified, having undergone extensive training in ophthalmology (diseases and surgery of the eye), followed by highly-specialized training in the field of vitreoretinal surgery. They are members of the American Society of Retina Specialists, and the New England Ophthalmological Society. All of our doctors are members of the American Academy of Ophthalmology, and have been involved in research and several clinical trials.
The members of our staff are courteous, efficient professionals, able to assist you in the office and on the telephone with every aspect of your office visit, treatment, follow-up care, and insurance claims.
We will discuss your condition with you in detail and develop a treatment plan that you find acceptable. Do not hesitate to ask questions. We believe solid doctor-patient relationships are built on mutual understanding. We welcome suggestions or complaints regarding our service.
If you would like a second opinion, do not hesitate to tell us. We can recommend appropriate specialists in the region, and send them information about your case.
Your medical record is strictly private. No information regarding your condition will be given to your employer, friends, or relatives without your written permission, except when required by law, as in cases involving industrial injuries or assault, for example.
Our patients can access their medical records and office visit reports securely online in our Patient Portal.
Our three offices are conveniently located to serve all of southeastern New England.
