She is not very personable. The last visit I had with her she didn't even touch me. just asked a few questions and sent me on my way... no heart beat check, no breathing exam. I felt as if she was rushing me out of the office.

The doctor was such a sweet heart. She listened to everything I said, didn't brush me off like some doctors like to do. She took her time to ask me question it didn't feel rushed. She answered all of my question. Made me feel like I was important to her as a patient. I'm definitely making her my primary doctor. The office was a good size clean the receptionist and nurse we kind. Overall I was happy with my first experience.

It was a longer wait time than expected, which was OK since it was winter season I imagine they get a heavy load around then. Dr. Spadafina was friendly and very helpful and informative. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a good primary care doctor.

It was my first visit and I didn't know what to expect from her or the facility. We pulled up and I was a little turned off because it's a converted house so I didn't know what to expect. Parking sucks on a Saturday but the office wasn't crowded with only one other person waiting. I filled out my paperwork, met with the assistant and was seated in Dr. Spadafina's office in about 15-20 minutes. She spoke with me first, reviewRd the notes from the assistant and wanted to know if anything was wrong with me that she should know about. She was very personable, professional and knowledgeable. I might have just found my new PCP! From someone who is not too fond of doctors I was really appreciative of my great experience with her.

She was very very friendly and answered all of my questions. She has a very warm demeanor and genuinely cares about her patients. The wait time was decent but I went on a Saturday so they probably had less patients. The office is adorable and everyone; receptionist, nurse, Phlebotomist and the doctor were all very friendly and helpful. I'm very happy to have found a doctor's office I can trust.
