My son sees Dr Smith for a serious case of excema He had suffered for 5 years, and she was the first Doctor to diagnose his condition correctly. She determined the best medicine for him was Dupixent Injections. Insurance kept denying it, but she and her team wrote many letters to them and it was finally approved. My son is remarkably well since starting this medication. Dr Janellen Smith and her team always kept his best interests in mind. She is a dedicated Dr, teacher and caring human.

This doctor is highly incompetent. She misdiagnosed a skin cancer which was biopsied and removed by another doctor. She was more interested in selling me expensive cosmetic procedures. I was billed $1154 for a basic annual exam. The second doctor I went to charged me only $498, which included removal and biopsy of a growth. UCI has been absolutely horrible about resolving this issue.

Dr. Smith is highly incompetent and grossly negligent. She dismissed my skin symptoms as totally normal on 2 separate visits. I got a second opinion about 8 months later and thank goodness I followed my gut feeling as I had 2 skin cancer operations. One was basil cell the other an aggressive form of squamous cell. Had I not gone somewhere else, I could be dead. Do NOT TRUST THIS DOCTOR, she could end up costing you your life!

Dr. Smith is a wonderful doctor. Her follow up is amazing. She called me 2x regarding a biopsy until she got ahold of me. She has a great bedside manner and puts you at ease immediately with your questions and concerns.
