  13. love my doctor and his staff. prompt, efficient, and always so caring

  14. Dr. Spector is the best foot doctor, especially for athletes.

  15. Dr. Spector said that he was not able to make my appointment time at 1:30 PM because of an appointment he had. He did not say that this meeting he had was an emergency meeting, rather that he thought that he might be running late. With less than an hour's notice, my appointment was moved to 2:15 PM. Because of this change in appointment time for his convenience, two appointments that I had made for later that afternoon had to be cancelled. An emergency, I understand. For convenience sake, I find that somewhat rude. While I am glad the appointment was reschedules/changed, it was made two weeks previously and it would have been better had it not been changed.

  16. Very kind staff at the desk, the nurses, the doctor - to a person. That helps a lot when you are in pain!
