Dr. Smolen is by far the most arrogant and insensitive Doctor I have ever encountered. Sadly Providence Pediatrics is highly rated otherwise, however we were forced to see Dr. Smolen due to a last minute sick visit and he was the only available provider and now we know why. He would not listen to our concerns, talked down to us as though we were completely crazy and told us to read his blog. Perhaps he is a good doctor of which we will never know since we will never return to see him. He should not be dealing with children or mothers of children since his bed side manner is extremely lacking. He was successful in getting my son more upset than I have ever seen before and after being told our son did not have an ear infection and was simply "high maintenance" we went for a second opinion only to find our son, in fact, had a double ear infection. Do not see this doctor if at all possible. I would recommend anyone in his place.

As opposed to the previous reviewer, my family has always had stellar experiences with Dr. Smolen. My children have seen Dr. Smolen their entire lives, and he always takes the time to answer any questions I have and to explain what's going on with my children's health. He is always prompt, efficient, and has a down-to-earth demeanor that puts both me and my kids at ease. His gentle way with children makes doctors visits much less stressful, as my kids actually LIKE seeing him. For this family, Dr. Smolen is the only pediatrician in town!

Wouldn't recommend. We've only seen Dr. Smolen once, but decided to ask not to see him again. I don't know why, but he spoke down to me like I didn't know much of anything as a mom. He also didn't seem to want to listen to any of my concerns about my child. Wouldn't recommend him, especially as a children's physician.
