Review of Dr. Smelyansky

-

I was not able to communicate with him, in terms of substance. I asked him two questions and he kicked me out of his office, saying he did not have time for me. I was shocked and insulted. So he absolutely will not talk to you. He does not know how to talk to patients, and his problem had nothing to do with his accent. My referring family doctor apologized to me profusely for sending me to him.

Review of Dr. Smelyansky

- in Heiskell tn |

First kicked me out for not having I'd, after being a pt 14 months I'd. Returned for 1 month and was called in for two hour notice of RANDOM pill count. I informed them I didnt drive and couldn't make it in two hours because I didn't live in their county. They said they had second hand info of an anonymous call saying I was selling my meds. Didn't have the balls to speak to me directly. Coward,treats cash pts better. My brother was cash pt. Would not listen to my side of story, COWARD, sorry dr

Transferred from another clinic that did not accept my medicare supplement and found out the supplement doesn't cover the medicare difference in cost. Doctor was rushed on first visit and didn't even examine me,just looked at reports rather than the original MRI films. All paperwork, past history and insurance billing. No hands on care I'm afraid. Staff is pretty nice though.

Review of Dr. Smelyansky

- in Madisonville |

After three surgeons and two PCP's, all telling me that I'd been in a difficult job for years and I was experiencing wear and tear, Dr. Smelyansky Took the time to try and find the cause of my pain. He did xrays and found the problem. Then he began to treat my pain effectively. He and his office staff are courteous and responsive and I wouldn't consider going anywhere else. If you have pain, this is the place to be.

Review of Dr. Smelyansky

- in Knoxville, TN |

After experiencing negative encounters from other clinics, I was wary and prejudiced when I came to Omega Pain Management. M,y concerns were completely without merit. As an RN, I have been on both sides of the stretcher, both provider and patient. Dr. Smelyansky and staff are stellar examples of professionalism. I have never waited after signing in more than a few minutes, never waited for the labwork, and again, prompt attention in the exam room. I 100% recommend Omega and Dr. Smelyansky.

—I couldn't ask for a better doctor. Like someone else said, he treats you like someone needing help instead of a drug adic. Everyone in the office is wonderful. The dr. and everone in the office has my greatest respect.

Would not bring my worse enemy here! After 3 years of treatment on 10 mg daily of methadone, at a reputable pain management doctor in Atlanta b4 returning to TN, on my 1st visit here this dr pulls me off of it cold turkey because"it is baby dose and I am not methadone clinic" - neither was my other pain doctor! I spent 6 days in withdrawal which I had never experienced and was horribly sick! He says not possible w/such low dose. Gave me rx for 30 pills told me to figure out taper!
