    Gregory SMith is an excellent provider (PCP). He listens, observes and makes excellent care recommendations.

  • Sep 20, 2019

    He had me waiting in the exam room for 50 minutes and no one checked in and no one apologized for the long wait. I will not be coming back to see that dr

  • Sep 19, 2019

    He was very thorough and very concerned about everything.

  • Sep 19, 2019

    Staff was running behind. Appt was at 0930. Didn’t get taken back till nearly 1000. Had another at 1100 and made MA aware. Staff did great and making sure I was seen. Very good service. Waiting about 15min for lab but had to leave in order to make my other appointment.

  • Sep 15, 2019

    Oh, yeah, I like he's a good I like him. He's okay for me. That's all, he's a good provider for me. Okay. Bye.

  • Sep 12, 2019

    Dr. Smith is an excellent listener. He is professional and caring at the same time. The diagnosis and treatment that he recommended following our visit left me feeling that he truly understood my issue, and that I had hope in recovering from the physical and emotional problems I had shared.

  • Sep 12, 2019

    My doctor was 25 minutes late coming into my appointment. I was scheduled to have a complete physical and he basically only had 15 minutes to work with me and wanted me to come back another time and get the physical done when that was what I had scheduled the visit for. I wasn't real happy about it.

  • Sep 10, 2019

    Adequate care. Don't feel a real connection.

  • Aug 24, 2019

    I Love this doctor.

  • Aug 20, 2019

    Dr Smith was yet again, late to the appointment. He is ALWAYS at least 10-15 minutes late to every appointment I've had with him. This isn't the fist time I've left because of how late he was. 40 minutes this time. I show up 10 minutes early because according to the office, that's what he requires, and then sit in the exam room for an additional 40 minutes. If he's going to be late, letting his patients know would be nice, or communication with the staff to let patients know would also be helpful. I get it, things happen but this is a constant thing with Dr Smith. My time, no matter what he may believe, is valuable. I do what I'm supposed to, show up when I'm supposed to, and I expect the same. A little common courtesy never hurt.

  • Aug 17, 2019

    I was seen on time. Dr Smith was entirely focused on my concerns and provided a way forward with a series of exercises and return in 3 months.

  • Aug 10, 2019

    Dr. Gregory N. Smith M.D. is very good at what he does. He is helpful, informative, courteous and kind.

  • Aug 04, 2019

    The patient was very satisfied with the provider.

  • Aug 02, 2019

    I had an appointment with Dr. Smith for a body scan to see if there were any moles that might need attention. As always, my experience was done in a timely manner by both the doctor and his technician.

  • Aug 01, 2019

    Timely and excellent service by wonderful people. The Orenco station staff brings great pride to the policies of OHSU and sets the standards for others to emulate. A real ?? gem to the community

  • Jul 19, 2019

    Dr. Smith is everything I have hoped for as my primary physician. I feel blessed to have finally found the right physician I feel I can trust and speak with comfortably, he listens and is thoughtful in his responses. He is very much appreciated.

  • Jul 18, 2019

    I feel like he is not really listening to me, and he doesn't convey how he has come to a decision, unless I really press for answers.

  • Jul 06, 2019

    Very good. Good listener. Good advice Appropriate questions.

  • Jul 02, 2019

    The staff were very friendly. I was treated promptly and professionally.

  • Jul 02, 2019

    aLWAYS TAKES HIS TIME WITH ME AND LISTENS.

  • Jun 30, 2019

    Dr. Smith and staff are very nice. I had to wait for 40 minutes even though I was on time for my appointment.

  • Jun 29, 2019

    The experience I had with him, he explained everything very well and I understood everything very well with help from the interpreter and everything, everything, everything.

  • Jun 28, 2019

    Yes. Yes, this is [Name] and Dr. Greg Smith's been you're really good with me. He was one of the things I really liked about Greg is that he's a good listener as well as asking questions pertinent questions. So it's a it's a two way. It's a conversation and we get some stuff done. So I really I recommend him highly.

  • Jun 28, 2019

    I feel that Dr. Smith listens to my concerns and tries to reassure me and inform me of what.... what is going on.

  • Jun 28, 2019

    I really appreciated seeing Dr. S. He was answered all of my questions clearly and gave good instructions. Most importantly though, he was both competent and KIND. Thank you!

  • Jun 19, 2019

    It would be helpful if a provider is running late for a courteous call so that we can determine if we need to reschedule. After tracking the doctor down, I was finally able to see him at about an hour after the check in time. With running late, I was not able to take the time with the doctor that I should have due to other dr appointments that I had that afternoon. It created a rush and was not valued time with the DR. If we have to be on time and prompt, it would be nice if our time was appreciated also. I get there are times that Dr's run late, a opportunity to reschedule my day or appointment would have been appreciated.

  • Jun 17, 2019

    Prompt, efficient and thorough.

  • Jun 17, 2019

    My experience was better than what I expected and I expected a great experience it took me a while to sift through drs that accepted our ins and saw a video of dr smith and instantly knew that was the dr I wanted to oversee my family?s health. Thank you so much for the amazing experience.

  • Jun 14, 2019

    This was a new patient get established visit. Dr Smith was acquainted with the medical summary that I submitted before the visit, he handled my concerns well, made the needed referrals, suggested some changes about gout, ordered some lab tests, suggested a shingles shot and scheduled follow up. The student was upbeat and did well. My needing to call for specialist referral appointments was new to me. Previously, the physician's office made the appointments and faxed the appropriate notes to the specialists. I am glad Dr Smith and I made some connections. I feel confident that he will act in my best interests.

  • Jun 14, 2019

    Hour late on last two appointments for medication consult lasting 5 to 10 minutes. Returning every 3 months is a waist of time and money. Previous doctor only required 6 month appointments when I was taking 2 class 2 drugs.

  • Jun 07, 2019

    Yeah, my....my appointment went very, very nicely. Everything was done very professionally and very quickly. The doctor was great. He explained everything to me what was going on, and we went over my options and it went smooth and very nicely. I.... I can.... I can sing nothing but praises for Dr. Smith and all of the staff that were in there. They were great. Thank you.

  • Jun 07, 2019

    The visit, the doctor, the clinic, the nurse, or C....CMA, they were all wonderful. Doctor was very knowledgeable, did a very good job. I was very impressed. Thank you.

  • Jun 06, 2019

    He took a lot of time with us and was very thorough.

  • Jun 06, 2019
