I made my appointment with Dr. Spiegal based on the review I saw here...and he was good. He took his time to listen and didn't waste time going over other stuff as soon as I told him that I've been throughphysical therapy already... he sent me in for MRI immediately for the pain I've been dealing with for sometime. Recommended for sure.

I have been seeing a podiatrist for almost a year and felt like they didn't listen to me. I went to my first visit with Dr. Spiegl and I felt like he heard me as a person and not just anothernameless patient. He looked at me when he talked and really listened to me. It was worth the 1 hour drive. I would recommend him.

I really enjoyed meeting Dr. Spiegl. We don't have the answers we need just yet but he is willing to look a little further to decide the best course of treatment for me. Getting a little more information and more directionbefore making a decision is best and I like that about Dr. Spiegl.

I have seen doctors in NJ and NY for a problem with a neuroma, both wanting to do surgery. He was able to diagnose a different source for my pain, hopefully I will not have to have surgery.

Dr. Spiegl is very arrogant. He seems annoyed to have to talk to you at all because whatever he recommends for you is obviously the correct choice. He was, personally, in the exam room with me for less than 7 minutesbut you should see what was billed to my insurance company. I knew of him through reputation, and I'm sure he's an excellent surgeon. But, he should be forbidden from being around patients until they're under anesthesia.

My visit went great. Dr. Spiegl was thorough, caring and communicative and what sometimes can be a dealbreaker - the office staff was superb! Everyone was so warm and caring, from the front office to Dr. Spiegl's assistant to the technicians.All questions were answered patiently and at no point did I feel rushed although I was the last appointment of the day.

The wait was horrendous. There was no explanation. The office was freezing cold. The magazines sucked. The PA was alright-had more bedside manner than the doctor did.

He seemed professional and knowledgeable but I left his office upset every time because I never saw him until at least an hour after my appointment time. In fact I walked out of my last appointment because I waited almost 2hours in the waiting room and he never showed. Why set an appointment time if you are never going to see the Dr. until 2 hours after the scheduled appointment ;~O(

I liked the doctor and the majority of the staff. but it was weird that i have to call a totally different person, who i didnt meet to schedule my surgery. and she has yet to answer, which i find odd.even when i called the office directly and got transferred to her extension she still didnt answer.

Front office staff was very rude and not friendly. An hour and a half before I actually got to see the Doc. Multiple times nurses and PA's would come to my room to let me know it would be "2 moreseconds". Not impressed with the customer service side of the business, but I do believe the Doc is knowledgeable and will put together a good plan for my feet and ankle issues.

Took a long time to finally see Dr. Spiegl himself. I was treated very harshly in taking my xrays. The xray technician claimed that she was rushing trying to make sure I saw Dr. Spiegl because there were a lot ofpatients and she wanted to make sure he didn't leave. I didn't understand this being I did have an appointment with him, so why would he leave. Once I saw Dr. Spiegl he was very expedient in getting to the issue and what he needed me to do for him to give me sound medical advice for my condition.

I had my appointment with Dr Nicholson. I didnt have to wait too long. The medical assistany noted down all the details and I had an x ray done in a short time. The doctor came within a few mins ofthe x ray and went over the details. I had a spasm in my back muscle and what I liked most was that he took time to explain what was happening, pulling up diagrams on the computer etc.

Many good things and one bad thing. The good: *Dr Paul Spiegl is great, very professional and smart. *The nurses, the PA, the technicians, the receiptions - they are all very nice and helpful. *The clinic is great - clean, organized,it feels good. The bad (and it's very bad): *The wait time. I found myself waiting more than 1.5 hours a few times. It seems that they have a problem with Dr Spiegl's availability because he is sometimes called for urgent surgerys or something like that. Whatever it is, I understand that things can happen, but why not inform your patients? If the doctor has gone somewhere and won't be availble for 2 hours, please call the patients who have appointments (or let them know as they sit in the lobby) and inform them about it, so they may reschedule or find something to do! This is a CONSTANT problem with this place. I've been here at least 8 times and there was only once that I waited 15 minutes. All other times were AT LEAST 45 waiting if not more than that.

Doctor Spiegl and his immediate staff are great. The office staff need to work on their side of the business. When a doctor did'n know he had an appointment waiting that rests on the office staff and booking group to make sure they are on the same page.

DrSpiegel allowed the patient to talk abd he listened without cutting the patient off. The patient can best describe what they are feeling which can aide the physician to get closer to a correct diagnosis.I felt that hw had good bedaise manners and I was impresaed with the visit.
