Patient Comments (8)
Mars Hill, NC |
He and his office staff are so compassionate and friendly while still being professional and productive.
in Knoxville, TN |
After experiencing negative encounters from other clinics, I was wary and prejudiced when I came to Omega Pain Management. M,y concerns were completely without merit. As an RN, I have been on both sides of the stretcher, both provider and patient. Dr. Smelyansky and staff are stellar examples of professionalism. I have never waited after signing in more than a few minutes, never waited for the labwork, and again, prompt attention in the exam room. I 100% recommend Omega and Dr. Smelyansky.

DR Smelyansky follows the rules. He's caring and offers any relief he can. I'm so happy that I found him.

—I couldn't ask for a better doctor. Like someone else said, he treats you like someone needing help instead of a drug adic. Everyone in the office is wonderful. The dr. and everone in the office has my greatest respect.
Would not bring my worse enemy here! After 3 years of treatment on 10 mg daily of methadone, at a reputable pain management doctor in Atlanta b4 returning to TN, on my 1st visit here this dr pulls me off of it cold turkey because"it is baby dose and I am not methadone clinic" - neither was my other pain doctor! I spent 6 days in withdrawal which I had never experienced and was horribly sick! He says not possible w/such low dose. Gave me rx for 30 pills told me to figure out taper!
in Maryville, TN |
He and his NP already decided before they came into talk to me that they were not going to treat me. They talk loud and have not so thick walls. I was not even given a fair shot at getting to talk.
in Jasper, TN |
For a year I had been stuck on the couch afraid to move because the pain I was experiencing was horrible.The "other" pain clinic never could seem to get my pain under control.If your stuck in a terrible position because of pain,Dr.Smelyansky is your man.I'm no longer crying my eyes out everyday.I'm able to do physically activity for the first time in a year.
in Oak Ridge, TN |
Dr. Smelyansky does not listen to what you are telling him. Has long list of procedures that he performs,but when ask about having something done says not set up at his office to do them. A couple of nurses in back very rude.
