Verified Patient Reviews
Visited on the recommendation of a friend. Dr. Spielfogel was able to take of my issue with no problem. He also helped me get the right medication at a reasonable price when my insurance didn't want to cover it.
Cheerful and helpful staff. Very professional.
dr meet with me had an assocate do the work he did good work
My office visit with Dr. Spielfogel was excellent! I am so glad that I found him on Zocdoc. Dr. Spielfogel treated me for the pain in my foot and I left his office happy and satisfied with the treatment that I received from him. I highly recommend him to anyone who needs a doctor for foot pain.
Dr. Spielfogel is a professional. I liked him, his staff and the way his office was run.
Dr, Spielfogel was excellent. However, the office had no record of my appointment booked through ZOCDOC.
This was my first visit. I made the appointment on the recommendation of my husband who previously saw Dr. Spielfogel and said he was excellent. The doctor was personable and professional. Staff was also accommodating and very pleasant.
Very good bedside manner and attentive staff. Would certainly recommend.
The visit to discuss and take measurements for replacement orthotics went well. I had every expectation that the doctor's office would get back with me regarding how much, if any, of the cost would be covered by my insurance. It's been more than 3 weeks and I've heard nothing despite leaving a message for the doctor's office. Given how costly it is to attract new patients I'm quite surprised at the lack of follow-up - but I'm glad to find out now before spending more money here.
Efficient and accurate
Evidenced highest level of expertise. Answered all of my questions and addressed all of my concerns. I will definitely come back.
Nice guy, knows what he's talking about, He diagnosed the problem and mapped out a plan to fix it
Very professional. He listened closely what I had to say. He conducted an exam, which included x-rays on the spot. He then clearly explained my options.
Great doctor. Professional, courteous. and knowledgeable.
Very good podiatrist. Highly recommend him..
Dr. Spielfogel's demeanor was very friendly and he was extremely informative on what I could do to help my condition. His office staff were also very friendly and funny. I would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of a podiatrist!
Fantastic. I went to him for a second opinion prior to getting surgery and I am so happy I did. Incredibly knowledgeable and comforting!
Dr. William & his staff were very professional and friendly. The doctor took great care of me and fixed my problem. I also appreciate their office accommodating my need to expedite my appointment because I was visiting their office on my lunch hour.
Dr. Spielfogel was able to treat my foot injury in weeks after dealing with other doctors for close to 10+ months. He really took the time to diagnose properly and knew immediately the right approach for a solution. I have not had any further feet issues in the last 2+ years after being treated by him and appreciate his continued support via checkups and customized orthotics. Thank you!
He is very precise and careful. Also pleasantly friendy. Have been happily using him for years
Very pleasant and professional. Highly recommended
Excellent very impressive
Absolutely outstanding! Asked lots of questions to get to know me as a patient and then used that information to ask more distracting questions while fixing my foot. Was patient and nice. Outstanding bedside manner. Front desk staff was outstanding, too - took the time to be absolutely certain that they could accept my very confusing health insurance, which I greatly appreciate!! Overall the best experience I've had at a Dr's office in a long time.
I went to him to get a second opinion to treat plantar faciitis. I recommend!
Very thorough and efficient. Highly recommend him.
Great doctor the staff was exceptional
Dr. Spielfogel was great. I had seen 2 other doctors who didn't help me. Dr. Spielfogel figured out exactly what was wrong and I'm feeling much better. He's no nonsense and answered all my questions well. He's also a nice guy. Great find.
I felt rushed and without a positive outcome for my condition/complaint.
It was ok
I will never return to see this physician.
The visits were average. He seemed to know what he was doing, but didn't explain anything very well. However, I still haven't been able to pick up my orthodics because every time I call his office, they are closed. Not sure if they're out of business or what... very frustrating since I took a lot of time to go there twice to be fitted and tested. And now my feet are still in pain, and I don't have any orthodics.
it was great, very sweet man! It was very thorough and he was even able to take the x-ray there and then no wait at all!
Wonderful Services, the staff and Doctor were a great help.
Dr. Spielfogel didn't mess around. I'll be going in for a check up visit in 2 weeks. I thought he was really honest and cared about getting my foot back in working order
I wish I had met him sooner !!
i have been there twice and i think they were very good and he's a great doctor, he knew the problem right away and got us a great solution! no chasing ur shadow here!...i would highly recommend him!
Dr. Spielfogel is professional yet friendly. I felt like he was actually listening to me. I didn't feel rushed through my visit and I didn't feel like the doctor was going to find problems where there were none. This was only my first visit but he seems very knowledgeable and I will be back.
Very good, my immediate problem was addressed professionally and timely.
William was extremely friendly and described to me everything that was going to happen. Although wait was approximately 45 minutes and the place looks a little bit "outdated', the service is exceptional. Thanks!
The doctor was very straight forward and professional. His brooklyn staff were not at all professional and nice. When asked a question about getting an authorization for an MRI. Her response was "do you know how many i have to do ahead of yours". Its a shame to have to think twice to see a physician based on your office experience.
I was late and they were still very accommodating. Was to the point but was very personable. I was in and out.
I thought it appointment was ok. His front office staff was not super helpful with my questions or with explaining the office procedures, and it was a 9:05 appointment that I waited until 9:45 for. I also felt like I was given lots of x-rays with little explanation as to why they were necessary, though I am sure they were. Overall, he is very kind and seems like an excellent doctor.
Very professional, up to the point, no nonsense, highly recommended.
"he front desk had no idea I had an appointment as 'the girl who does the internet thing wasn't there." But the doctor did see me nonetheless and did a biopsy rather than just diagnosing me on the spot which I give him five stars for --and made an appt for a follow up to review results.
He was very professional know is craft
I liked the doctor and his staff, but the wait time was terrible (just over 1 hour), without so much as an apology. Office was clean, but very 'tired' (old paint, old furniture)
Dr. Spielfogel was fantastic. Very knowledgeable and zero wait time. I definitely recommend him.
Excellent doctor. Great experience at his office, sweet staff, the works.
Very efficient and knowledgable. The staff was friendly and nice. Definitely a great doctor.
Established trust quickly by comunicating his caring. Great quality for a professional
