Podiatrists in Wheaton combine the warmth of a small-town practice with the resources of a large doctor group to provide expert medical and surgical care.

Dr. Spector’s first podiatry office opened in downtown Silver Spring in late 1990. He was born in D.C. and grew up in Silver Spring, Maryland; as a youngster he accompanied his physician father on patient rounds at Holy Cross Hospital and saw his mother working as a nurse in a nearby pediatric office. Those experiences helped him build a network in the community that enabled his practice to expand rapidly. He opened an in-office surgery center in 1994 and opened a satellite office in the Rockville/ Shady Grove area in 2000. The Silver Spring office moved to it’s present location

On the top floor of 2730 University Boulevard West (Westfield Mall) in Wheaton. Dr. Spector currently works in the office with Dr. Emmanuella Eastman and Dr. Peter Brieloff. Not only is Dr. Spector one of the founding members of Foot and Ankle Specialists of the Mid-Atlantic, but he was also honored as a Top Doctor by Washingtonian Magazine in 2012 and 2016, as well as a top sports medicine physician in 2018.

Dr Spector is an accomplished athlete, having earned a division one swimming scholarship, and still keeps active running and playing tennis; he founded the Montgomery County Road Runners Run Performance Lab that evaluates runners of all ages. He appreciates the importance of strategizing and planning an active recovery so that athletes (dancers, kick boxers, bikers, runners etc.) can return to action as early as possible. All our doctors and staff enjoy working in the metropolitan area, treating patients from diverse cultures and ethnicities, in ages one to one hundred. We especially love treating children.

Our staff is fluent in English and Spanish.

The rooms in our Wheaton office are spacious and airy with big picture window views of the Washington Monument and National Cathedral. The walls are decorated with jazz luminaries, some of whom can be heard playing overhead. A community bulletin board displays many patient accomplishments such as a high school track record run or a 50-year wedding anniversary.

  9. The doctor is always friendly and says hello, even if he's not ready to work on me. This last visit, I picked up my orthodics. I did not need to see him. Nonetheless, he stopped in my room, greeted me, and asked me if I needed him. He also asked what I was doing lately. As for the office staff, he has really trained them well. The office staff is wonderful. I'm always greeted as I enter, before i even write my name on the pad. If someone doesn't know who I am, and this is often, I still get a cheery greeting. Once I'm identified, I'm asked how I am feeling, how the summer (or other season) was and if there is anything new the office needs to know. I usually don't have to wait more than five minutes or possibly ten minutes.

  10. I've only needed to see Dr.Spector a couple times. In each case he has exemplified the level of professionalism I prefer in medical professionals. The man exudes an air of positivity and confidence that makes visits painless and stress free. I know this sounds like one of those cheeseball fake reviews, but his footside manor really does put me at ease. I can't recommend him enough.
