I would have to say that I have experienced and entirely different Dr. Smith than what has been reviewed prior. I have had some very rare and extensive female problems for which I have been seeing Dr. Smith for. I experienced her to be very compassionate and tender and understanding. Having had such 'issues' to be dealt with I have been made to feel that she had all the time I needed with her. She has occasionally needed to bring in another Dr (Haberstroh) for some 2nd opinions concerning my case. I'm sad to hear that the other ladies have had the experience with her that they have. I simply have not experienced Dr. Smith in the same way. I have however had Extremely bad experiences with Dr. Grillo found in the same office. That is one Dr. that I would not recommend. He was my ob for my now 16 yr old son...and I still remember how badly he made me feel and how bad his bedside manner was. Maybe those of us who have experienced Dr. Smith in a wonderful way...should post our thoughts on here as well. We tend to post our disappointments and not our gratitudes.

My husband and I went in for our first visit after finding out we are expecting our first child. Dr. Smith came in to the room and started the exam, never acknowledged my husband at all. The exam was over in less than 5 minutes. I pulled out my list of questions and was told I better pick two. I had to wait till I was 8 weeks pregnant before the office would schedule my 1st appointment and my husband took off work to come with me for nothing. Dr. Smith just didn't have to time or desire to speak to us. Believe it or I went back and the 2nd visit was even worse with another doctor. I felt like I was just a number to them.

My wife had been seeing Dr Yolanda Smith for about 3 months for some problems, and until then had been reasonably satisfied. However on her last time "seeing" Dr Smith, she was told that she would have to see someone else due to scheduling issue. Dr. Smith stopped by telling us that someone else would do the procedure, and then we were treated to hearing a discussion in the hall about my wife to the effect of "you can do it" - "no you do it" - no you can do it" - "ok I'll do it". from our observation, Dr Smith and another doctor were "trading off" my wife as a paitent like a piece of meat. Then, with my wife already disrobed - under a blanket, in walks a MALE doctor whom my wife had never even seen to do her very invasive procedure. You would think that a female would have a little more compassion that to just dump off her paitent to another doctor. The vist only got worse from there. (See review on Dr Grillo on Kudzu) We would not recommend going to Dr Yolanda Smith

Don't go! Never liked any of them. Come to think of it... why did I let them deliver my child?!?!Dr.Smith left a foreign object in me after delivery and I had an infection. Enough said... Looking back I really wish I had changed groups. All of them are sorry.
