"Dr. Mang-Smith is one of the best doctors I’ve had in a long time. She is sharp, attentive, perceptive, a step ahead of me even. I went in for something pretty basic, that thing that is necessary but most women avoid. She asked important questions and offered great solutions to some things I hadn’t even considered addressing. She ordered an important test and the radiology department called me to schedule before I even drove away from the medical building. Dr. Mang-Smith is a Women’s health physician, after all, which covers a lot more than I was even thinking about. I also left with a book and a prescription. I think my life is about to get a lot better. "
"I would not go to any other OB. Katie Mang-Smith is thorough, informative and compassionate. She covers all bases and is truly an exceptional Doctor who cares about her patients."
"If anyone is looking for an OBGYN, Dr. Katie Mang-Smith is outstanding. I always feel very well taken care of seeing her. I really appreciate the extra time she takes to educate me on the issue at hand. Because she does such a fantastic job at explaining to me my “problems” and my options, I leave our visits and am able to go home and do thorough research before making a decision. My experience with doctors in the past has been very different. With other doctors I always felt I left my visits more confused and with more questions than answers and no understanding of where to start my research journey. Dr. Katie Mang-Smith speaks to me like a person and presents me with options and ideas. I also feel like she is able to read the room and understand that (especially in this Valley) not everyone is 100% medically inclined. I consider myself pretty in the middle of appreciating western medicine and holistic health. It is my experience that Dr. Katie Mang-Smith respects that’s how many people are and doesn’t make them feel like quacks. I highly highly recommend her!"
"Dr. Katie Mang-Smith is always willing find ways to explain answers to questions I have until I understand."
"I was impressed by Dr. Katie Mang Smith. It seemed that she had taken the time to review my previous medical history and presented prepared to address my concerns. The authentic and organized approach to connect with me as a person, not just a patient was refreshing. I would describe Dr Mang Smith as intelligent, easy to communicate with and caring."
