Praise for Dr. Smialek!
“Dr. Smialek has been the perfect match for our daughter, Alice. We decided to switch to a naturopathic pediatrician when Alice turned 12 months old. It was frustrating to go to a traditional pediatrician only to be rushed in, have her weighed and measured, then made to feel like I was an ignorant parent for opting out of vaccines. We desired a doctor who would respect alternative vaccine schedules, try natural remedies first instead of prescribed drugs, and also take enough time to examine Alice as a whole. We feel so blessed to have discovered AZ Natural Health and Dr. Smialek! EVERYTHING she has recommended for Alice has been for the better, such as probiotics to help boost her immune system and a fantastic homeopathic remedy for motion sickness. Each visit has been a positive experience. Dr. Smialek’s very name represents her – she truly is a genuine, kind person with a constant smile on her face!”
