    I've been Dr. Spambalg's patient for 5 years. She is an exceptional physician. Unlike so many doctors today, Dr. Spambalg looks at each patient as an individual. She is thorough. She remembers and studies my history, labs, and lifestyle and makes recommendations accordingly. She has extraordinary follow through, even calling during off hours to follow up on a specific detail discussed during an appointment. Her staff is professional, they are timely and I could not recommend her highly enough.

    Dr. Spambalg is an A+ doctor. I don't think I've ever been to a doctor who is so thorough! She will keep on you though if you are overweight, but not in a nagging way. She stopped taking Blue Cross PPO, which I have so, I couldn't afford to see her anymore. My regular MD monitors my thyroid, but it is NOT the same as her monitoring. I'm considering returning to her and paying cash for my visits. She's just way more thorough at monitoring my thyroid. I highly recommend her.
