Dr. SmOLAR IS AN EXCELLENT DIAGNOSTIC IAN AN VERY CARING. ONLY PROBLEM is too many patients.
Ft Lauderdale, FL |
The person who finally answered the phone (it seriously rang 20 times) was a jerk and transferred me to Donna, the office manager, who... like the other reviews, was unhappy, unhelpful and rude. Doctor Smoler is pleasant enough if you can wait an hour past your appointment to see him. He has to have an assistant run his computer though, so be patient while he says everything three times.

Extremely knowledgeable and patient. His care management is very effective and has stabilized my rare autoimmune disorder.

I've been seeing Dr. Smolar and his team for a few years now and it has to be one of the best experiences I've had with a doctor ever. Dr Smolar is very knowledgable and very caring and takes time with you to figure out what's wrong. His many years has given him a lot of great experience to figure out even the most difficult issue. His staff is extremely friendly and courteous and good-humored and helpful with all the pitfalls of helping get medicine approved and what not. I'm very happy.

Found to be extremely detailed Bob jones

Dr. was inconsistent, first telling me I could lengthen the time between blood and urine testing, then at the end of my visit, handing me an order for tests I'd shown him from just one month before. He was unable to retain the information I was giving him, making me repeat my test result numbers anywhere from twice to five times. He failed to conduct a complete initial physical exam, and missed my heart arrhythmia. I will not return to him if he's the last endocrinologist in South Florida
