Ratings for Dr. Sasha Smiljanic
I have been seeing Dr. Smiljanic for 8 years now. During that time I have never felt rushed. I find him to have a wonderful bedside manner, and is very direct when discussing the current state of my illness and my prognosis - two things I really appreciate. I cannot say enough good things about this wonderful, dedicated physician.
Dr. Sasha has been my oncologist for 3 years and he is very supportive, understanding, and caring. He takes the time to understand my needs and to also take what is available in the medical and research communities and find the best fit for me....
I was suppose to have six months, under his care, it's been over 2 years, pancreatic cancer is one of the worse types of cancer to have. Dr. Smiljanic is always staying two steps ahead and giving me options once the chemo doesn't work anymore. He is very compassionate, I am surprised on some of the negative comments, he is not that man they describe.
Dr. Smiljanic has been so caring, compassionate to me and my family. He has provided outstanding care going above and beyond. We appreciate the staff at Lions Gate, everyone has been so supportive in this difficult time in our life. Thank you for giving us hope!
Really not happy with the care my friend received. When I asked where the oncologist was, the cardiac specialst (who was a doofus) said "Oh, he was supposed to be here yesterday, he is a busy man, maybe he forgot.") FORGOT? My friend lay in Lions Gate hospital for nearly TWO WEEKS before he got the treatment he needed. My friend's spouse said Smiljanic was very dismissive and not very compassionate when he talked to the family. All along by the cardiologist and others was: "Oh, don't worry, he's not going to die". Well, it didn't turn out that way.
I have been seeing Dr. Smiljanic for 7 years now. I always leave his office feeling that I am being taken care of by a kind and competent physician. He will ask if I am comfortable with his treatment plan, which I find unusual in a Specialist. I have nothing but good comments to make about this kind and considerate man. Even when the news is not good, I leave his office feeling that I am being treated with kindness and consideration. It means so much when you are ill to have confidence in the person who is taking care of you.
