Review of Dr. Smarandache

-San Marcos, CA |

Being a life long vegetarian/vegan, I came to her to do my annual blood work. She is very opinionated about what's considered a healthy diet. She told me I needed to eat butter and meat. I have hereditary dry skin, and she concluded immediately that I needed to eat animal fat, all these without even asking about my family history. I asked to get my annual mammogram and fibroids checked out, never heard back from her on that. I'm not going back to her.

Review of Dr. Smarandache

-Fallbrook, CA |

Comes across as minimizing your problem. When asked for a referral for an MRI and an orthopedist for my serious back pain during an office visit she appeared to be resentful of the request. She did, however, submit the 2 referrals to the insurance company. The MRI shows severe spinal stenosis in 3 areas along with moderate in 2 vertebrae. She does not seem to be taking the pain very seriously. I just requested a referral for the pain management department and have also put in to change my PCP
