He has an excellent bed-side manner. I knew as soon as he walked into the exam room that I would like him because he had a nice smile on his face. He is a good listener, and I am sure, an excellent diagnostician. I thoroughly trust him. The office staff is very friendly. The person who makes appointments is, too.

Today is my first visit with Dr. Smilen. I was so grateful for his attention, patience, diligence, and thoroughness. His nurse Susan was just as amazing and made all attempts to make me comfortable. This is the first time I was taken care of in a manner that I am not accustomed to with many necessary procedures being completed during my appointment. I highly recommend Dr. Scott Smilen for your medical care.
