All of the office people as well as the nurse staff are very professional yet personable. I have had some misgivings about Dr. Smith's attitudes. At times she seems to have her own agenda and disregard my question or comment. She does not seem open to my input at times. I would have addressed these thoughts with Dr. Smith had she seemed more open.

Every person I contacted on this visit was very cordial and helpful with excellent knowledge to satisfy my needs.

  Aug 3, 2023
The only negative is that Marian is so busy it's necessary to wait 2months or more to get an appointment. She's incredible though.

Everything went well.

Dr. Smith is the most patient, friendly, and helpful doctor I've ever visited. They answered all of my questions and made sure I was taken care of. The staff (nurses, MAs, and front desk) were all very friendly and comforting as well. As someone who gets a bit nervous in doctor settings, this office is the perfect fit for me.

  Jul 19, 2023
Provider was dismissive of my medical concerns and I had to fight way too hard to advocate for my health. I am looking for future care elsewhere. However the medical assistant was a delight!

  Jul 17, 2023
The visit was very good - I liked Dr Smith! My only "bad" experience was the time it took to see her as a primary care provider - 10 months!! In the meantime I was able to receive care at Legacy Urgent Care which worked out OK.

  Jul 17, 2023
Excellent. Warmest thanks! Greatly appreciated!!!!

  Jul 5, 2023
Very positive experience.

  Jul 3, 2023
Everyone was respectful, friendly and well-informed. This includes the radiologist. Dr Smith was very thorough and listened with interest. She referred me for X-rays and ultrasound and to see a podiatrist. And I was having trouble with a prescription from another doctor, so she wrote me a new prescription which was very helpful. I felt like she really got my situation and really cared about my health.

I was late because of traffic, but they still worked in an appointment for me

Dr Smith is an excellent provider. I switched from Kaiser to Legacy Health and have been impressed with the level of care I have received. Dr Smith truly cares about her patients and takes the time to discuss my health concerns and will not hesitate to refer me to other physicians if needed. I have recommended her to my friends.

  Jun 19, 2023
Dr Smith is giving me the best and most thorough care I have ever received from any other health professional. She is caring and empathetic.

Dr Smith is skilled at working with a patient's cpncerns within the context of sound medical practice.

Supposed to be a yearly physical but did not take off clothes or have breast or abdominal exam Felt it was a waste of money as far as my insurance co was concerned. Been seeing other heart related doctors but they do not give a general exam, including skin. Empathetic but wants me back for Medicare wellness!

I really liked meeting Dr. Smith! I'm so glad to have her as my primary care physician. I feel that I am in good hands and that she will be a great health care partner as I continue forward. It took 5 months to get the appointment but definitely worth the wait!

  May 4, 2023
Provider did not agree that my RX was causing my symptoms. I believe they were!!!

I am usually called within 15 minutes, but this time was longer. It was close to 30 minutes.

  Mar 23, 2023
Ironically I have developed headcold symptoms starting yesterday eve with sneezing and sinus involved/related after going to Dr's for an exam and talk about recent blood test results.

  Mar 16, 2023
I have been very pleased with Dr Smith especially during Covid. I would rate her as one of my top care providers

  Mar 7, 2023
I have recommended this provider to my family

  Feb 22, 2023
Dr Smith cares, is through, respects my intelligence and my sensibilities regarding health care. She is kind and attentive. I never have to wonder when she will get back to me because she always does in a timely manner. I feel very fortunate to have found her.

  Feb 22, 2023
I find Dr Smith gives excellent referrals as needed, more on target than any previous doctor I've had. She's very good at most aspects of treatment and diagnosis. The main negative on her, and the only reason I don't give her higher marks, is I find her difficult to talk to. She projects a feeling of superiority rather than one of partnering. She seems to be too much "by the book" rather than listening and being open to ideas that might be more easily brought up with a partnering relationship.

I did not know about the parking garages ticket policy as I did not get it validated and was not asked about it. So when I was leaving I had to try to figure out how to pay for parking and even the lady behind me came up to help process the visaCard and nothing to show I paid for it.. I know it's only $10.00 as I found out later on my visa statement. Just a little sign would have been great.

  Feb 9, 2023
I wish I had found her sooner!

Dr. Smith knew what was wrong with my right toe my just looking at it. She is a really good doctor. I have always been happy each time I have gone to her.

  Jan 5, 2023
Dr. Smith is always thoughtful, intelligent and a great listener. She always ends by asking, " Is there anything else you wanted to ask me?'. This is a very helpful reminder.

  Jan 4, 2023

Dr. Smith is knowledgeable about ehlers danlos syndrome and hypermobility. I don't have to explain it to her every time I come in. I really love that about her. She has also been really understanding about my transition starting hrt and top surgery. Not to mention how helpful she's been in figuring out my FMLA paperwork.

The medical assistant who took my weight and my vitals and recorded the reason for the visit was AMAZING. She was so incredibly kind, caring, helpful and sensitive. I told her how I had missed my bus stop and had to a mile to the bldg, & she was so empathetic and brought me 2 cups of water. She was an absolute Angel. She deserves so much praise.

  Oct 6, 2022

  Oct 5, 2022
