As a new patient I waited 20 minutes or so over my appointment time to be seen. Dr. Smollen seemed to be in a hurry to get my exam done and over with- spent maybe 5 minutes with me. I will not be returning.

Dr. Smollen is extremely professional and patient when you have questions. She is up to date on new information and forms a great professional bond with her patients! Delivered 5 weeks early and she was great at talking me through everything and keeping me calm. Will definitely go to her for subsequent pregnancies! Never had a better experience with a doctor.

Dr. Smollen took a lot of extra time to talk with me about my concerns. It was very helpful in understanding what would be happening from beginning to the end.

She really knows what she is doing. She delivered my son May 2015, and was great!

I researched Dr. Smollen & read many reviews prior to scheduling an appointment & have been disappointed thus far with my experiences with her & some of the staff. I felt there was a lack of communication and an unwillingness to take extra time to explain and answer questions. Also at times I have found the staff to be unprofessional such as carrying on loud personal conversations in the reception area, eating in the exam area & clothing with obvious pet hair on it.
