I've had Dr. Smosarski for the past 15 years. He is an excellent doctor. His nurse is excellent. He is very caring, considerate of our needs. As long as he is practicing, I will keep him as my doctor.

Reading the rest of these comments, something terrible wrong it happening to Dr. Dave's Practice!!! I have to concur with much of what has been said. I think Dave is a great man, easy to talk to, knowledgeable and provided great care. But over the last 8 - 10 months the level of health care i have received has diminished to ZERO. I am not sure what the issue is but i have decided to start the search for a new doctor, which is a shame because he is such a good Doctor.

Beside that, his support staff are absolutely HORRIBLE... RUDE, OFFENSIVE, NO PEOPLE SKILLS, NO CONCEPT OF PATIENT CARE...the only reason i have stayed for the last 2 plus years was because of Dr. Dave sill and bedside manner, but not anymore, the PROs no longer balance out the CONs with this Clinic....

Most unorganized staff I've encounter to date! Dr Smosarski is a very gently, pleasant person but is very distracted and dismissive .. He seem to always be in a hurry to get rid of his patients instead of listening to your health concerns. Normally this would not be so upsetting if it was easier to get an appt to revisit him. The women that answers the phone for his office is the most unpleasant ppl I've ever spoken too. It's frustrating to call his office knowing how horrible they treat the patients on the other end of the line. I have anxiety everytime I need to call for an appointment because of their attitude. I have complained about them numerous times but yet they remain unchanged. Something should be done about people like that to prevent them from working in the health care facilities! The same women answers the phone for all doctors in that building, so no matter which doctor I choose to visit, the call through these same women. The most recent bitter woman I got on the other of the line is Sharon ... These women should be prison guards, not healthcare receptionist

I think dr David S.s is sometimes compassionate & @ times he is very drastive & throes to rush his patience away -: he should really focus on his Staff & hike patients more !!!! He needs to focus on his profession as a Dr !!! Cause alot of his patentece is fed up of his status as a dr -: put yourself in your ppl shoes rats sufferin !!!! Karma is always watching you Sir !!!!!!!

I've had Dr.Smosarski as a family doctor since he moved to Hamilton. Back then he used to be a wonderful, caring doctor, one that you could actually get in to see if need be. I still think Dr.Smosarski is a wonderful human being and a great doctor. But since all the changes with grouping together with the other doctors, it is ridiculous to get an appointment, you have a to wait a month to see him? I mean come on. As for his staff? I have never ever in my life ever seen someone so absolutely ruder than the one he has answering the phone. I think it is time to search for another doctor. I feel as patients we should be treated better

I think his staff are the most negative people I've spoken out of all the health care facility I've been too in the past.. They appear to be without people skills and should be put in a room with the filing cabinets instead of being allowed to speak with patients. It have gotten to the point where I don't want to call for an appt because of the rude attitude of these women.. They clearly don't like their lives and project that negative tone on patients..the doctor is very gently and too kind to fire them all. I feel very aggravated whenever I have contact with his staff, like a weight goes on my shoulder if I have contact with any of the women who answers the phone or the ones at the counter..

Very unfriendly staff, who will not pull up a file to reference over the phone. They also enjoy hanging up on myself and my wife. They also have forgotten to call to cancel appointments in which Dr. Smosarski had to leave for the day. Thanks, I'm out a half day of work because you couldn't be bothered to pick up a phone. The doctor failed to order a MRI for an injury that occurred 18 months previous. Had 3 appointments to "remind" him of the needed imaging. And also had two physiotherapists contact him for prescribed imaging, and one of them works in the same building as him! MRI results came back. Their is a tear in my hip. So he sent me to see a hip replacement specialist, who actually laughed and asked me "why on earth would Dr. Smosarski send you to me". Not exactly knowledgeable in my books.
