Patient Reviews (2)
in Spokane, WA |
Dr. Smetana is fantastic. She provided excellent care during my pregnancy and delivery, and has impeccable bedside manner. She has always been quick to respond in detail to my questions, and was very respectful of my preferences regarding delivery. Post-baby, she has continued to provide thorough and considerate care.
in Spokane, WA |
She's nice, but doesn't keep her word. At 12 weeks pregnant, I asked her how many weeks overdue she lets patients go. The answer was 42, which was great as I didn't want to be induced. At 40 weeks 3 days, she changed her mind and said her threshold was 41 weeks even though there was NO medically necessary reason to induce. She induced me, threw all kinds of interventions at me when the induction failed, and I ended up with a c-section without laboring at all. I was totally railroaded by her.
