I would recommend Dr. Spector. He seems like a happy and professional doctor. I felt like I was in good hands with him! He didn't act rushed and he treated me with respect and care!
I appreciate the time going over each x-ray.
The doctor was prompt in arriving at the examining room. He was friendly, but professional. He diagnosed my problem immediately, explained the issue, and discussed three ways to treat the problem. I followed his initial recommendation for treatment with a RX.
Dr Spector is a gem! He is obviously knowledgeable, has a great personality, did the necessary and made it as easy as possible. He's my family's new podiatrist, and we're his new referral service!
I was very pleased with the level of details provided by the doctor as related to my situation and the prompt actions to determine the underlying causes of the pain and treatment options . I was never left alone in the examining room for more than a few minutes without the doctor or one of his staff attending to me. Everything was handled very efficiently.
I was very late because of transportation problems and they accommodated my lateness.
Everyone was kind and helpful!
