I have seen Dr Smartnick for over 4.5 years. He has helped me deal with some of the most difficult experiences of my life such as post traumatic stress related to domestic violence. He takes time to listen to me and conceptualizes things in a way that help me understand my feelings and how to cope. He also works with my other physicians and coordinates care wonderfully. I have found him to be extremely kind and caring and his staff as well.

This doctor should have his license taken away. He is a liar, reckless, and has probably caused more harm then good. Please check out any business this sorry individual works for because if they would hire him I would assume there standards are as low as his.

I was sent to Dr. Smartnick by my primary care 5 years ago and having never had a psychiatrist, I didn't realize how poorly I was being treated for my depression/anxiety. -does not spend time with patients -does not listen at all - he is constantly talking over you -never knows what you are on (that he prescribed) and messes up the dosages that he gave you -discouraged me from seeking counseling -After being hospitalized anxiety he refused my request for a doctor transfer w/in his practice
Horrible experience! Shouldn't be allowed to call himself a doctor! I needed serious help and he did the exact opposite.

This individual is one of the most arrogant people I've met in my 49 years. Unfortunately for society, he's in a field where recommendations don't apply and he doesn't have to follow patient or family wishes, he can do what he desires (charge insurance). He has taken the power that we've given him through the law and abused it to a level I've never encountered. This man should not be allowed to practice medicine in the United States. There will be something done about this incompetent doctor
