Specialties

Dr. Laurence N Spier has the following 2 specialties

  • Vascular Surgery

    Vascular surgeons treat and manage disorders in your veins, arteries and your lymphatic system to ensure blood circulation in your heart and in brain is the best it can be. They're well-versed on how your vascular system works with the rest of your body and they can treat conditions that may cause blockages or buildup.
    They can perform many of the same diagnostic testing as interventional radiologists can, such as angiography and MRIs. In addition to diagnosis, they provide critical care and treatment for aneurysms, artery blockages and trauma injuries that involve your veins. They can also help patients manage diabetes, blood pressure and cholesterol as well as treat artery disease. Treatment for more serious cases might include bypass surgery or surgery to remove plaque.

Warm, Genuine and Compassionate

I had my first visit with Dr. Spier this week after my Pulmonologist thought I should have a lung biopsy based upon my Cat Scan Results. I was a nervous wreck for one week prior to my appt. with Dr. Spier. Dr. Spier not only put my mind at ease regarding my results, but made me feel completely comfortable and at ease from the moment he called me into his office. I have read other reviews that says the Dr. Spier is only in business for the money. I am baffled by these reviews as Dr. Spier, who is a surgeon, told me I did not need a biopsy. I highly recommend this doctor. You will not be disappointed. I am so grateful to have met this Dr. and received his professional consultation.

Dr Spier is professional, supportive, and did an excellent job on my surgery. He has an excellent bedside manner and visited me in the hospital every day during my recovery. I would highly reccomend him to anyone needing thoracic surgery. In addition, his using laproscopic methods greatly sped my recovery and overall wellbeing. I had heard stories of others going through surgery the "old fashioned way" which means large painful incisions and long recoveries. With Dr Spier this was completely not the case, and my recovery was quick and quite pain free. Again, he is a wonderful doctor and I highly recommend him. One last thing, Dr. Spier and his staff have always been easily accessable for questions, whether in person or on the phone.
