Bayside, NY |
I have been going to this dr for a good amount of years. Up to recently i must say my respect for him and his office hit new lows. I was admitted to the hospital jan 2017 for a total of 9 days. My wife tried contacting him to let him know and still to this day april 3rd i cannot get any feed back from him. I am currently trying to obtain medical records to send to my cardiologist and his office is terrible at any kind of assistance. I am done with him. Next!

I started seeing Dr. Smolow a few years ago and loved him. Now recently he has really changed. He has not helped me with any of my health problems, he doesn't even try, he's become incredibly rude and condescending. I left his office almost in tears because of how horribly he treated me. His staff is no better. The secretary I spoke to gave me an incredibly hard time even scheduling an appointment with him when he's been my primary care doctor for a while now
