Dr. smajkic is very approachable and direct, which I appreciate. I have referred friends who would Agree that his approach is successfull. I also love his no nonsense office with no receptionist which can cause additional anxiety. Just a calm waiting room and never a long wait. Do not hesitate to book this doctor.

I am a new patient. First time with a new psychiatrist can go one of two ways. Most of my experiences have not been good. That said, my appointment with Dr. Smajkic was far from bad. Felt very welcomed, and I saw an honest, focused, and caring doctor. He asked the right questions to get to know me better, and took the time to discuss options for treatment. I highly recommend Dr. Smajkic if you are looking for the care you deserve.

I would call Dr Smajkic "the man behind my miracle". I was dealing with a huge a mount of anxiety and depression. Just after the first visit, Dr Smajkic could diagnose my disorder and prescribed the right medication which changed my life completely. He is extremely smart , passionate and knowledgeable ! He really cares and listen carefully when you talk with him and I 100% recommend him to anyone who seeks a better mental condition

charges a 35.00 telephone prescription refill charge - I have never experienced a doctor charging for this before. Appointments last 15 minutes and are a waste of time.

I have been taking my son to Dr. Smajkic for several years. He is always prompt, sensitive to needs, speaks with honesty and candor. He explains whats best for my son.

Listens well, willing to consider patient ideas; impeccable ethics: he adheres so strictly to prescription laws, he can be a pain in the butt (must come for additional visit for minor medication adjustment within days of recent visit); expensive without BCBS PPO, but worth it; warm, kind, empathetic. Makes you feel comfortable and your problems important. Read his bio- true hero and survivor (whatever you've been through probably can't shock him). Highly recommended.
