Four Stars

Great doctor. Friendly, accurate diagnoses, welcomes innovative treatments, good sense of humor, often performs quick, in-office procedures without charging them to patient or insurance company. Unfortunately, staff is difficult. When I developed acute painful swelling in my right arm (which was ultimately diagnosed as thoracic outlet syndrome compounded by a genetic increased blood clotting factor), the staff would not schedule me for an immediate visit with Dr. Spector. As a result, I scheduled with another nearby physician whose staff would schedule me; I ultimately stayed at the other doctor's practice. So Dr. Spector lost a long-time patient because of his staff. Truly unfortunate.

Money hungry

If you want a doctor who is more interested in how much money he can charge your insurance company than he is interested in knowing you as a patient, then this is your man. He didn't pay any attention to my health as a whole. It was a disaster. I have a new doctor and everything is going great.

Good Doctor, Rude Staff

I left this office because the staff was rude. Dr. Spector is not a bad doctor and a very nice person, but his staff is rude and mean. The wait times are also too long. My time is important too, not just yours.
