I have used Dr. Smitas as my general practitioner for over 3 years and find her attentive, interested in my problems and helpful. I think caring is the best word to describe her. Never seems in a hurry and patiently listens.

Dr. Smitas is a wonderful physician. She respects and cares for the whole person, not just a disease. She is patient, kind and extremely perceptive. I respect her more than any other physician I have ever known. She cares deeply about her patients.

Dr Smitas really listens to you, takes time with you and doesn't rush. Appointments are on time with little waiting. Well run office, and I feel fortunate to have her for my primary doctor.

Dr Smitas is a kind and caring person and an attentive listener.I would recommend Dr Smitas to any gender or age group, you never feel like a number or that she is in a hurry.

Bright, Personable, Friendly and easy to get along with. A Harvard undergraduate and a former Professor of Medicine at Brown University. Also a diabetes specialist. She does not press you to do irrational screenings even if she is being measured by them. Medicare in early 2016 stopped these. Last week, Andy Slavitt, Medicare?s acting administrator, announced the end of a program that tied Medicare payments to a long list of measures related to the use of electronic health records. NYT
