I thought this was a good visit. Jay listened well, and explained everything he was doing as the exam ran its course. I found it really helpful that he could communicate as a "jock", that also happens to be a doctor.He was able to describe the problem, and the treatment regimen going forward, in terms that made sense to me. I'll be back when I injure something else.

Dr. Spector was very friendly and did a great job of explaining my diagnosis. He endured that I understood my options for treatment, and explained the pros and cons of both. The only con was the assistant who was not knowledgeableabout whether something would be covered by my insurance. Other than that it was an amazing visit. Check in process was smooth, X-rays were easy and friendly, and check-out was great too!

Dr. Spector evaluated and treated my daughter. He was prompt, professional, and addressed her (and me) with respect and compassion. He was willing to answer questions and discuss his treatment plan. He was focused on us and my daughter's clinicalconcerns, never appearing distracted as some doctors do. I highly recommend Dr. Spector to anyone looking for a Podiatrist!
