    Dr Smith listens to your problems and handles appropriately.

  • May 04, 2019

    Dr. Smith listens to what is issues I am having. Then does checks to see what the problem could be. Orders tests when necessary. I feel that I matter and that my health is in good hands with him.

  • May 03, 2019

    DR SMITH LISTENS TO MY HEALTH ISSUES, BUT IS NOT HELPING ME TO GET BACK TO MY HEALTH,HE IS VERY LOW KEY PERSON, HE ALWAYS ASKS THE SAME QUESTIONS, I DON'T THINK HE HAS EVEN REVIEW MY FULL MEDICAL RECORDS TO KNOW HOW TO TREAT ME AS A PATIENT. I A VERY DISSAPOINTED BECAUSE AT THIS POINT IN MY LIFE, 60 YEARS OLD, I NEED ANSWERS TO FIND OUT THE ROOT OF MY ILLNESS, WHY I FEEL SO TIRED, MY HEALTH IS DETERIORATING, I LOST MY JOB DUE TO HEALTH REASONS, I HAVE LOST EVERYTHING THAT I WORK ALL MY LIFE FOR. THE MINUTE I LOST MY EMPLOYEE PROVIDED HEALTH INSURANCE, AND GOT A STATE SPONSORED INSURANCE FOR POOR PEOPLE, NO ONE CARES ABOUT THE PATIENT

  • Apr 30, 2019

    Already have recommended Dr. Gregory Smith to other people. He is very easy to talk to, mostly because he listens, then comes up with a healthcare plan to fit your personal needs

  • Apr 18, 2019

    Hey, I'm 57 years old and I inherited this doctor after my doctor retired and moved on and it's been the worst experience I've never gone through my life. I have an 8:30 appointment is 1st appointment. I'll sit there for 45 minutes to an hour to be seen for 5 minutes. This guy's pathetic. He should be discard and then I dropped off paperwork for something that happened in February and made me schedule an appointment to come back in. It's been weeks and the mid lost half my paperwork. They couldn't find it. This guy's the most pathetic pile of you know what on the planet I would not recommend them. I I think that he shouldn't be even be working. He's the worst doctor I've ever had my whole life, and I'm I'm done.

  • Apr 15, 2019

    My PCP was not in the office this day and I appreciate the schedulers making it possible for me to see Dr. Smith on a same day apt for a UTI.

    It was ok

  • Apr 11, 2019

    Very good interaction. Great Dr.

  • Apr 11, 2019

    Last visit was my third visit in a row where he did not examine me at all. They were about 5 minute visits. He would make a medication change, offered no advice, not very caring, never laid a finger on me. I'm being seen for high blood pressure, he never listens to my heart, feels my pulse and I just feel like he'd rather be doing something else other than taking care of me. He makes medication changes, but doesn't make lifestyle modification recommendations, which are very important, as I've had lots of side effects to every medication that I've tried.

  • Mar 24, 2019

    Dr. Smith was great

  • Mar 12, 2019

    Dr. Smith listened to my medical issues. He was knowledgeable and quick to response to them. He made recommendations on how I could improve some of my issues through further exercises, and ordered some tests to see how I was progressing with the medication I was currently taking. I was very pleased with the outcome of my appointment with him.

  • Mar 11, 2019

    I think it'd be helpful if we did the required lab work before meeting with the doctor, then it would be, they would be able to give better consultation about what is going on with my health at that time.

  • Mar 08, 2019

  • Feb 18, 2019

    Dr. Gregory Smith was very very patient. He listened to me a lot. He asked me the questions about how I was feeling and dealing with stuff with my health and he put a lot of thought and what kind of med he would recommend me to go in and start a new treatment for my menopause and the side effect. It was just great. I was not expecting that we would go so smooth and so well on the first appointment, but okay. I'm so I'm totally satisfied. Like okay. I think he's a good person and a great doctor. Thank you very much.

    He was warm, welcoming, and totally interested in his patient. He is very thorough, he was looking over the records, found a couple of things that needed to be brought up to date. And as far as I know, he's done that, so I was impressed. Are we finished?

    I was very satisfied with Dr. Gregory Smith as with my diabetic ongoing treatment. The problem is, is that I (INAUDIBLE) Providence so I don't know how that's going to work, but I liked that the appointment that I had the day before yesterday with Dr. Smith. I liked the care, I liked the nursing, I liked it all. But I don't know how the insurance is going to work for this.

  • Jan 08, 2019

    The office staff was rushing me to complete papers and then when I got in room I felt rush for everything. My thoughts and questions went out the door. This is the reason I left Kaiser.

  • Jan 05, 2019

    I enjoyed Dr. Smith very much. He was very personable and listened and seem to be concerned about a couple issues and I felt it was a very excellent visit. He took my blood pressure a second time, when I wasn't quite so nervous, and had a better reading. So anyway, I was very pleased. Thank you.

  • Jan 05, 2019

    Dr. Greg Smith is probably one of the finest family care doctors I've ever been attended by. Very knowledgeable, very articulate, very careful, very caring, and his staff is impeccable. He has a bunch of RNs that are just out of this world. I can't recommend Gregory Smith any higher as a credit to Oregon Health Sciences University.

    Dr. Smith is the most wonderful primary care physician and family physician. There....I've only had two doctors in my 55 years of living that have been exceptional and he is very exceptional. He is the best listener. He's helped me with many different issues, a broad spectrum of issues, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anybody, young or old.
