Dr. Spates is one of the most wonderful and professional physicians I've ever met!

I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Spates! I saw him for a mohs surgery consult after being diagnosed with basal cell carcinoma (and after seeing a very unpleasant mohs surgeon the week before). Dr. Spates was amazingly pleasant, professional, and caring. I knew I was in such good hands. The next day I had the mohs surgery performed by him - I could have made a better choice. He is truly a pro - he has wonderful hands, professional and courteous staff, a very pleasant and caring personality, and mostly - he knows exactly what he's doing and he does it so well.If you need mohs surgery in the NJ area - don't think twice and go see Dr. spates!

Wonderful dr!

Dr spates is awesome! Not only did he speak to me in a calming manner, but he also knew all about my problem before I even arrived. Surgery was quick and he even personally called me to make sure I got home safely and felt ok. He provides a direct ext too to call if you have a problem. Not many dr take the time with their patients like dr spates does. Love this dr but hope I don't have to see him again for surgery lol.
