Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Spector is a very down to earth and personable physician. I had a wart under my foot that he has treated with amazing results. He makes explains everything clearly and gives his recommendations. 5 stars very a great physician and office staff.
He was able to immediately diagnose my issue, recommend a solution, and provide pricing.
Nurse was rude and ratchet but doctor was great! Wasn't seen until an hour after appointment
My visit was easy and he was very professional. On time, quick resolution and I am very pleased
Really great Doctor. He was very insightful about the condition that ails me and the steps needed to treat this condition.
I had a most pleasant visit to this office. From the receptionist, to the nursing assistant, to the doctor, everyone was professional and very friendly. I was most pleased with Dr. Spector. He listened to me, and addressed my problem. I was most pleased.
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.
Very satisfied! Professional, quick and pleasant. Great sense of humor. Was back and had X-rays already done within 10 minutes of getting there. Highly recommend Dr. Spector, and his assistant was great too.
Great physician. Will be back. Office staff was friendly. Felt right at home.

Dr. Spector and his staff were professional and knowledgeable. The practice was very clean and up to date. I usually look closely at those details. I did have to wait a bit in the waiting room, but he spent his time answering my questions at the consult. I highly recommend Dr. Spector.
Very impressed with the efficient manner in which the appointment was handled.....Fairly quick visit and DOCTOR was very professional and did not push "extras" on me, as so many podiatrists can do.... Will definitely return again. Jean C.
I appreciate Dr Spector's I appreciate the honest diagnosis and nonsurgical interventions and approach Dr. Spector gave me. Great professional office staff too!!
Great guy, great staff! I would definitley recommend.
Dr. was prompt and professional. I had an ingrown toe nail but he said Medicare doesnt cover a proceedure to remove it so I only had a nail trimming.
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 knowledgeable about 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 clinical concerns, never appearing distracted as some doctors do. I highly recommend Dr. Spector to anyone looking for a Podiatrist!
