Review of Sharon Cathers

-

Worst person to trust with your care. She doesn’t care. Rude, self centered, egotistical, and has only had 2 years experience. Never again. Mean spirited, untruthful, and does NOT know what she’s doing. Lowest class graduate.

Review of Dr. Smelyansky

-

Filthy overcrowded office, one bathroom for men & women which usually has urine on the seat, no TP & rarely paper towels. The office staff lost my checks many times, as well as the faxes that my GP sent. Disorganized and subpar care. I wouldn’t recommend this place to my worst enemy. He only cares about high turnover and making money, NOT YOU! I had him inject my spine and could walk for weeks after. He had no clue what he’s doing. So crowded that there is usually standing room only. Terrible!

Review of Dr. Smelyansky

- in Knoxville TN |

Worst doctor on the planet. He injected my spine in hospital and I wasn’t able to get out of bed for nearly 3 weeks. He doesn’t care about you, he only cares for the money he makes evident by overbooking to the point you don’t even have a chair in his filthy waiting room. I had to sit in my vehicle on three occasions as there was standing room only. His pain management leaves MUCH to be desired. The one bathroom is for both men and women, has urine on the seats, & rarely toilet paper. Terrible!

Review of Dr. Smelyansky

- in Maryville, TN |

I have been dealing with pain management for years. CPS in Maryville was my previous provider. All they did was pretty much here take all this junk, and cover up the problem. Never did they offer to get to the root of my pain issues. I have been seeing Dr. Igor for 4 months now, and he has done more for me in a short period of time than any of the previous has in over 10 years. He already has scheduled testing and xrays. To get to the root of the problems. Thank you. Dr. Igor for listening to me

Review of Dr. Smelyansky

- in Maynardville, TN |

I have seen several pain management doctors in the Knoxville area and Dr. Smelyansky is the absolute best there is he is cautious in his patient selection which just instilled confidence and trust from the git go. I wouldn't trust another office in this town to manage my pain. The office staff are pleasant and accomodating, anyone stating otherwise is the problem not the staff. I give them 5 stars. The Dr. Saw me on the first visit ajd was astonished on how the other PM Drs had treated me.

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
