About Jennifer L. Smolinski, MD

“I truly care about my patients and I take the time necessary to properly address their medical concerns,” says Dr. Jennifer Smolinski. “As part of my job as a doctor, I also fulfill a role as a nurturer and confidant. I enjoy getting to know my patients.”

Dr. Smolinski says there were many reasons she decided to concentrate on obstetrics and gynecology in medical school. She felt that this specialty was one in which she could truly be an ally and a friend to her patients. “I love the opportunity to take part in major events in women’s lives and being able to relate with my patients,” says Dr. Smolinski. “It is so rewarding to be able to teach women and encourage them to become advocates for their own health and the health of their loved ones.”

Prior to joining OBGYN West, Dr. Smolinski worked at another OBGYN clinic in the Twin Cities. While in residency at Penn State College of Medicine, Dr. Smolinski received the Arnold P. Gold Foundation Humanism & Excellence in Teaching Award two separate times.

Dr. Smolinski and her husband (who happens to be another physician at OBGYN West, Dr. Bigos) have three children – Dominic, Marian, and Sebastian.  Their household is always busy – especially with their crazy Bernese Mountain dog named Xiba.  In her “free” time, she enjoys family trips to the Minnesota Zoo and the Minnesota Arboretum, fishing in Lake Minnetonka, date night with the hubby, and curling up with a good book after the kiddos go to bed. Her secret passion (aside from her loving children) is horror movies and true crime.
