Care Philosophy

I try to listen carefully and to understand the person before me and her complete medical history. My exams are gentle and thorough. I feel it is important to discuss treatment options in an understandable way. I strive to provide compassionate, intelligent and skilled care in the same respectful way that I would want my own family to be treated.

It seems that the first concern was contraception. As important as maybe creating a client for hysterectomy in the future. Never to see what the real problem is (it was a polyp that went on untreated for so long that I almost felt that I was going to die from so much bleeding). Or maybe understand that a woman wants to have another child, even if she is considered past her prime. Only God knows when is your prime or time, but a doctor can help by running the right tests at the right time.

I have left a previous review of Dr. Smith in which I expressed my difficulty in receiving a refund for overcharging me for delivery. Since then I have called the office numerous times with promises of a call back and have received none. I in fact received a letter saying I still owed them money. I had to call my insurance company and have them call Dr. Smith's office directly to have them admit to owing me money. Since then I have still not received a refund, when I call I am told that the per

Dr. Smith is an expert at delivery, she certainly knows what she is doing. However, seeing that pregnancy lasts 10 months and the delivery is only one part of it, I would not go to her for my next pregnancy. Dr. Smith keeps visits very brief and to the point. That may be fine for someone who has gone through childbirth a few times before, but women with first time pregnancies need a Dr. that will going to reassure, answer questions, and help prepare patients for birth. Her and her staff came off
Thank you very much for your feedback. I am sorry to hear that your experience was not positive, as I strive to listen well and to address all my patients' concerns. I would appreciate it if you'd give me a call or email me at the office so that I can learn from what made you unhappy. My staff and I are always striving for excellence and would love to have you back. Thanks for the information.

I could go on and on about why you shouldn't go to Dr. Smith's office. I would never recommend anyone go here. The front staff is horrible, you get very little amount of Doctor time; the only good thing about this office was the nurse.
Thank you for the feedback. I would appreciate it if you could call me at the office or email me, as my team and I strive to treat people well and I would like to learn from your concerns.

Love her! Delivered my first two and soon to deliver my last in June!! Very compassionate and warm!!
in Birmingham,MI |
Just had an initial visit because my previous doctor retired. Being a health professional myself, I am extremely watchful of professionalism,quality of care and cleanliness. Dr. Smith and her staff receive A+ from me. I complimented the doctor on how nice and professional her staff was which you don't see in too many offices! I especially appreciated the personal call to me to assure me all my diagnostic tests were normal. I highly recommend this practice!
in Beverly Hills |
Excellent , professional , easy to understand. Great staff . Super clean beautiful office .
in Royal Oak, MI |
She is the BEST gynecologist I have ever been to! She immediately put my mind at ease about a serious medical condition that I was sure was going to require surgery. We are trying an alternative therapy first!And so encouraging about other health concerns! Wonderful bedside manor!
in Brighton, MI |
She is very kind, patient & gives excellent pt. care. I highly recommend her & travel a great distance to see her since she moved further out.
Troy, MI |
Very friendly, kind, and thorough. I have had no issues with her, or her staff. I recommend her.
in Livonia, MI |
She will not return s phone call. Her office staff (receptionist) speaks with you about diagnosis. She sent a letter stating falsehoods, (saying I missed appointments when I rescheduled them).
Milford, MI |
She delivered 2 of my 3 children. I've had 2 procedures with her & have had outstanding care. I now live fairly far from her office, but am happy to travel to Dr. Smith. I trust her judgement & she's very gentle & sweet.
