wonderful visit with Dr Smiley for X's first pediatrician visit. I am sad to hear he is leaving as we would have loved him to be her pediatrician full time!

April 29, 2019 7:00 PM

Loved Dr. Shirley & team - however, making an appt. w/the Healthy Active Living Team is incredibly difficult. No one at the main # knows what it is and they won't give a better direct line.

April 12, 2019 7:00 PM

Overall, it went well.

April 9, 2019 7:00 PM

I have been coming to this office since 2004; love all the doctors, nurses & office staff that have worked here.

February 5, 2019 6:00 PM

We love Dr. Smiley! He is great with the kids and always takes his time to listen and answer all questions thoroughly!

January 29, 2019 6:00 PM

November 16, 2018 6:00 PM

The best provider ever!

November 8, 2018 6:00 PM

Thank you for the services provided. Experience good!

September 8, 2018 7:00 PM

We absolutely love Dr. Smiley. We feel like we (& our daughter) are in such good hands w/him. He takes the time to listen & answers all of our questions & is so great w/our daughter!

August 21, 2018 7:00 PM

Spent enough time with us & answered all of my concerns for my daughter.

August 19, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr Smiley is the provider for both of our sons and we think he does an excellent job listening and answering all of our questions. We would recommend him to anyone.

July 29, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr Smiley is terrific. The office is frequently not easy to schedule with and return calls are not received quickly enough.

July 25, 2018 7:00 PM

This was the first visit w/Dr. Smiley. I thought he was great. He used strength based language to talk to my sons.

June 13, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Smiley is the best doctor I've had. He spends a lot of time listening and addressing each of my concerns. Advocate is lucky to have him representing them.

June 7, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Smiley was amazing!

May 20, 2018 7:00 PM

we love Dr. Smiley. he is very polite and listen to what you have to say and answers any questions that you may have.

April 30, 2018 7:00 PM

my child's doctor is always professional, friendly and very knowledgeable. Dr.Smiley always makes us feel welcome and is extremely genuine to our daughter and always shows a caring interest towards her. She feels very comfortable when we have our appointments and we only want to come and see him and would recommend him to family and friends.

April 30, 2018 7:00 PM

Felt very comfortable - make my daughter feel comfortable. Was not rushed and was able to discuss all necessary topics.

April 18, 2018 7:00 PM

Very good doc.

April 17, 2018 7:00 PM

Call center for scheduling appointments and sending message to doctor or nurse is AWFUL, a NIGHTMARE - please improve on this area, it makes me want to leave Advocate Health.

March 27, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr. Smiley is a wonderful physician. He responds quickly within his busy day to the portal and answers all questions. I am so grateful to have him as my sons provider. He is thorough and does not rush through his appointments. He answers all questions and is always genuinely concerned.

March 22, 2018 7:00 PM

Dr Smiley shared our concerns, listened carefuly to what we were worried about, researched and read through Miat's records prior to our appointment, and above all, gave us precise instructions on what to do next.

March 16, 2018 7:00 PM

we love Dr Smiley. my son had procedures every 3 months and Dr Smiley is always helpful and addresses all our concerns each visit. He is patient and we are very happy he is our children's doctor.

March 12, 2018 7:00 PM

We are so pleased to have Dr. Smiley as our child's healthcare provider. He's been always helpful/respectful to us.

February 16, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. smiley is wonderful. Listens and asks relevant questions. Very good with my child.

January 28, 2018 6:00 PM

Dr. Smiley is fantastic. Helpful, clear in his explanations, and genuinely concerned for my daughter's well being.

January 14, 2018 6:00 PM

We love Dr. Smiley. He does not make us feel rushed and answers all of our questions.

December 30, 2017 6:00 PM

He was there for X's first check-up before we went home from the hospital when he was born. now he is his regular dr and we love him! he's great! ;)

December 26, 2017 6:00 PM

Dr. Smiley is great. He is easy to understand and is very patient with my questions and looking over my children.

December 11, 2017 6:00 PM

I feel the nursing staff and physicians in the practice are excellent. The one reason that I would hesitate to refer others is your phone center - it is the worst. People that answer the phone are not very personable or knowledgeable. Needs addressing.

December 10, 2017 6:00 PM

I really liked Dr. Smiley as did my son. Very knowledgeable and personable and great bedside manner with my son.

October 22, 2017 7:00 PM

He is excellent and is always patient and listens to everything you have to say. He does not rush and answers all the questions patiently. He analyzes and is also keen on knowing parents inputs

October 16, 2017 7:00 PM

Love Dr. Smiley. Very nice. Wish it was a tiny bit easier to reach the office for very quick questions, but the portal helps w/this. Other than that, no issues.

October 1, 2017 7:00 PM

Dr. Smiley is very professional. However, the parking at his office is HORRIBLE for a mother having to carrying in her children to his office. Also, we waited 1 hour to see Dr. Smiley. I don't know whose fault it is, but that is unacceptable. When you schedule an appointment, you expect that means you will see your Doctor within 15 mins of the scheduled time, NOT a full hour later. Having to put off a baby's routine is very stressful -- and makes the entire day horrible for having a fussy baby and a toddler since both did not nap when they were supposed to. I would never recommend to any mother to have to wait an hour for an appointment that was scheduled months before for her child at this practice.
