I really appreciate the fact that Dr Smiley has always been very prompt with our scheduled time. Many doctors make you wait and wait. In addition to his timeliness, he has a very pleasant demeanor and as far a can tell so far is very thorough. I drive from Aloha to Tualatin to see him as I really feel he is one of the good one's. Sincerely, C. Cannon - patient since 11/2017

I highly recommend Dr. Smiley. He listens to my concerns. I feel his responses to questions are direct. He is approachable and very professional. His staff is friendly and helpful. He takes time to review lab reports and makes recommendations. On several occasions, Dr. Smiley has personally called to give the results of lab work, even when all tests are normal.

Dr. Smiley is a keeper...he is personal, professional and interested in my health...One growing edge would be if he could help me understand how my kidneys effect other major organs in m y body. Does good kidney function equal good liver, pancreas ,bladder,and gut regulation? I did not ask him this....maybe just a minute of proactive teaching would be helpful.? I guess that is an individual case basis...?

My husband is a “brittle diabetic”, which means his glucose level is very hard to regulate; it can drop precipitously in a very short time. Because of this, his kidney function is very poor. A good friend recommended Dr Smiley to us several years ago because her dad had such a positive experience with him. Dr Smiley is a fine physician and my husband will continue to be is patient.
