Dr. Smollow is tops.

Dr. Smollow is very caring and calm. I took one of my friends to him. She liked him a lot and she had not seen a doctor in many years. He is so respectful and every single person in that office loves him. I met him when I was 8 months pregnant and 18 years later I am his patient still.
