Adam’s office staff were exceptional. My experience was fantastic, and I watched them work through some explaining with some other clients in a very professional and kind manner. Adam himself was quick, thorough, and made me feel at ease. Ileft understanding exactly the issue, what my options were, and what I should do next.

The office staff said that the info supplied by me on-line does not populate their electr records. Thus, the questions they asked about me were as if I had entered no data. This is not terrible, but is a waste of my time.

Very thorough, including to having my blood pressure taken by an associate before being seen by Dr. Spector. He was very friendly and answered all my questions. Very comforting and gave me a sense of future improvement with my condition, andhow to make sure I could minimize in the treatment area (my foot's tendon).

First - Office decor features supposedly comical pictures of old ladies ogling young men in bathing trunks. In my opinion, anti woman and anti elderly. Second- Woke from anesthesia to find attending nurse and anesthetist jitterbugging inthe operating room. Didn't boost my confidence level. Third- Dr billed for two feet when only one was operated on. Fourth - operated foot looks more grotesque than before.

I saw Dr. Spector because I stepped on a needle and he tried to remove it. In the end it needed to be done surgically under anethesia but what I saw at his office concerned me a bit. He was inthe process of digging into my foot with gloves on and then at one point he reached over and touched the door knob and then resumed digging into my foot. I was extremely concerned about the office hygeine protocals after I saw that.

The staff is very friendly and professional. Doctor Spector is a warm, down to earth individual that is very knowledgeable. His examination was very thorough and he explained everything very clearly in a way that was easily understood. Theoffice location is also very convenient with plenty of free parking. I would definitely recommend Dr. Spector and his team.

I'm glad I was able to make an appointment on such a short notice through ZocDoc. His office is extremely comfortable and I love the photographs on the walls!! I was little late to my appointment but I was still ableto see Dr. Spector. He was able to prescribe a solution to my cracked heel problem. He also suggested contacting him if I have issue with my prescription. I would definitely visit him if I have any more issues.

Dr. Specter and his staff were very professional and personable. He explained in detail my options for treatment. He did not try to steer me to some costly and unnecessary treatment when a more economical alternative would be equally effective. I would highly recommend his services.

The is probably a good clinician, but the office staff is why I will not ever go back. No one ever answers the phone or checks to see if I wa ever a patient. Waiting 1 1/2 hours in not acceptable.

The staff is nice/polite. The doctor took appropriate time during the appt, and answered all my questions. Office is very busy with multiple doctors, and patients. Exam rooms are in high demand. I was 30 min late for apt (called aheadto advise). Once I arrived I waited 1 hr to be taken to exam room. I spent another hour at office between doctor exam, x-rays, orthodic fitting, Rx, check out, etc. Parking at the Wheaton/University Blvd office is horrendous.

The Doc visit was fast and painless. They took x-ray of my foot to make sure it wasn't fracture. One Office staff member had a long day ( almost charged me twice for co-pay & made me fill forms that was already done online ). Overall a decent visit.

My visit with Dr. Spector was great. He was right on time for my appointment which was great because I had my kids with me. He was so friendly and nice and made me feel comfortable with the procedure that hewas going to do. He was very thorough with his explanation of what he was going to do and even drew a diagram to explain further. He was gentle and quick. My visit was great and I would definitely recommend him for any foot needs!

This was a brief, introductory visit. I was late because I had trouble finding the address, so there was no waiting time. As soon as I filled out the 'new patient' information, the technician and then the doctor saw me. Thepeople in the office are very pleasant as is Dr.Spector. I will need a little more time to be able to evaluate the advice that I was given.

I really enjoyed meeting with Dr Spector. I wasn't looking forward to going to a foot doctor but he was pretty funny and made me feel pretty comfortable. He figured out a solution to my issue first without surgery, so I will for sure be seeing him again sometime!

I am so let down by Dr. Spector and everyone that works for him. A year after surgery, I hurt more than before. What I am most upset about, is the lack of concern from the staff. Their true colors didnot show till after surgery, after "pay day" so-to-speak. Please seek another Doctor. You will save yourself from a world of trouble.
