Horrific Specialist I had to cancel the surgery at the hospital that they booked for me. I returned back to her office to inform the staff that I will not be seeing her within two weeks after thinking about what happened at the clinic. The staff were very kind and suggested that I should see someone else in the clinic, however, I wasn't interested as Dr. Carlissa Wittner-Smith behavior is highly unacceptable plus no doctor would ever send one for hospital surgery without test and physical examination first. Dr. Carlissa Wittner-Smith behaviour is highly unethical, very bad bed-side manners. She greeted me, then after I waited for her to ask any questions which she never did, I gave a brief explanation of what is happening, after that, she said nothing. She abruptly turned and left and gave her staff orders to give me dilation pills, pamphlet to read, and the staff booked me in for surgery in a hospital, and I never saw her again. Communication skill is definitely lacking, and she needs to go to "charm school". I didn't need surgery, nor hospitalization, I don't have cancer until this day. I saved myself an unnecessary procedure, and I never seen another OBGYN since as I just had some spotting between my menstruation because I was working too hard at my job. Of course, she will never know because she just assumed, didn't communicate, nor examine. I have nothing against her nor do we have personality clash. As a result of this incidence, I would definitely not recommend Dr. Carlissa Wittner-Smith to anyone.

Very nice & doesn't rush you. Always asks if any questions. Saw her with 2/3 my babies but didn't actually perform either c-sections. Still would recommend her.

I have had two surgeries with Dr, Wittner-Smith. She is amazing. Her skills are beyond any other that I have met. Friends can not believe how fast I am recovering and even my family dr was amazed at her skill with laparoscopic surgery. I travel from out of town to see her .Her staff is always friendly and helpful as well as punctual.

Careless with no bedside manners. She will never guide you and her only majic answer is that she has no crystal ball. However, she should have a brain ball!!

Dr. Wittner-Smith was my OB when I was pregnant with my daughter. She was everything I could have asked for in an OB and more. She always answered my questions and gave me reassuring answers. Dr. Wittner-Smith was on call the night my daughter was born and ended up performing my c-section. My labour was long and stalled for hours and she helped me decide it was time for a c-section without pushing it on me. She did an amazing job and I plan to go back to her when we decide to have our next baby.

I chose this physician based on the first hand observations I had made of the care she gave to others. She is calm and collected under pressure, she has common sense in spades, and is truly invested in achieving the best possible outcome in any given scenario. She has no hidden agendas, and will give you her best assessment honestly every time. She respected my own assessment of my health and situation, and together we made the decision to do my hysterectomy. I was nervous, of course, but her confidence made it easy to follow through on that difficult decision. My initial recovery was a breeze, and when unexpected complications arose a few weeks post-op, she was quick to deal with them, and I was quickly back on track with my recovery. I now feel healthier than I have in years, and as a bonus, only five months post-op, you can hardly see the scars. My only regret about my experience with her is that I didn't seek out her care sooner.

I chose this doctor based on the reviews I read on here, unfortunately my experience was completely different. Although she was nice to me, she didn't take any interest in my concerns or any of the issues I was having. She was dismissive and apathetic in regards to my concerns, I ended up having sever issues with my delivery which were related to her negligence as she didn't bother assessing me properly in the last month of my pregnancy. I was very lucky that the doctor on call in the hospital was fantastic and delivered my baby safely. The hospital staff even pointed out some of Dr. Wittner-Smith's mistakes and how all the issues with my delivery could have been avoided. She's also always stressed for time and never takes the times to see/talk/listen to you properly. I have a background in healthcare and knew what specific concerns I had, she was super dismissive and brushed aside anything that I had to say, I felt like she treats her patients like idiots.
