Dr. Steven M. Smolinski, MD

Obstetrics & Gynecology | Male | 46 years old

I believe that listening to and respecting your patients is a critical skill. I want patients to walk away from their visits understanding their issues and treatment rationale. I owe it to my patients to stay up to date with the latest knowledge and techniques in my field. Preventive care is the best way to avoid major problems or to catch small problems before they become big problems. I approach problems starting with the least invasive treatments and progressing until the problem is solved. It is important to be able to offer minimally invasive approaches when surgery is necessary. Pregnancy is not a disease and should be respected as a natural process. However, I can manage most high risk pregnancies. Labor is a natural process and rarely requires an episiotomy, vacuum/forceps, or a cesarean section. Patients should labor in a calm, supportive environment with as little intervention as possible. However, an epidural is always an option!Read more
