wonderful visit with Dr Smiley for X's first pediatrician visit. I am sad to hear he is leaving as we would have loved him to be her pediatrician full time!

Loved Dr. Shirley & team - however, making an appt. w/the Healthy Active Living Team is incredibly difficult. No one at the main # knows what it is and they won't give a better direct line.

I feel the nursing staff and physicians in the practice are excellent. The one reason that I would hesitate to refer others is your phone center - it is the worst. People that answer the phone are not very personable or knowledgeable. Needs addressing.

Love Dr. Smiley. Very nice. Wish it was a tiny bit easier to reach the office for very quick questions, but the portal helps w/this. Other than that, no issues.

Reviewed on October 16, 2017 7:00 PM

Dr. Smiley is very professional. However, the parking at his office is HORRIBLE for a mother having to carrying in her children to his office. Also, we waited 1 hour to see Dr. Smiley. I don't know whose fault it is, but that is unacceptable. When you schedule an appointment, you expect that means you will see your Doctor within 15 mins of the scheduled time, NOT a full hour later. Having to put off a baby's routine is very stressful -- and makes the entire day horrible for having a fussy baby and a toddler since both did not nap when they were supposed to. I would never recommend to any mother to have to wait an hour for an appointment that was scheduled months before for her child at this practice.
