Ive been waiting for a call back from her since Apr 5th 2021. She is an incompetent irresponsible person. She doesn't take the needs of people seriously when requesting help. She should have her license revoked for misconduct and being irresponsible towards mental health patients. Very disappointing.

Very good psychiatrist. A real listener who will communicate with you in a very detailed way. She takes her time and doesn’t yawn watching the clock like some of her colleagues do. I have known for more than 20 years and was her patient for almost 19 years. I relocated overseas in June 2017. However I am going back to the States by the end of May and will definitely schedule an appointment with her. I forgot to mention that her receptionist is also very friendly

Having seen her for over a year now, I highly recommend Dr. Smolarski to anyone seeking mental help. I have referred many folks to her, and all have said that she has helped them. She is very compassionate, knows how to refer therapists in the area, handles medicine RX and therapy plans with you and let's you know that she is there for you. Once you get in to see her........don't let her go!!
