    Surprisingly easy to make an appointment for this time of year in Manhattan. Staff was great and very nice, despite my tardiness. Dr. Smilen is very warm and does not strike me at all as a typical burnt-out doctor, as opposed to many other docs I've seen. He explained everything in depth, entertained my "Dr. Google" questions with zero snark, and actually came up with a treatment plan for me. He helped restore a bit of my faith in doctors' commitment to their patients :-)

    My visit with Dr. Smilen stands out as my least satisfying gynecological visit ever. First, the examination was the only painful one I have ever had in "that area," due to the fact that he just shoved the instruments in, seeming not to care about my comfort. Secondly, he was accompanied by a younger male doctor (or med student?) whom he was instructing, and within earshot of me, described my anatomy in unflattering terms as an example of what happens when a woman ages. Insensitive.

    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.
