Dr. Spiess was friendly, however, he quickly left the room and came back with a scope. Telling me “it won’t hurt” stuck it down my nose into my throat. The worst is, that scope cost over $150. I wish he would have told me it was a procedure. I didn’t see it as anything extra I was going to have to pay for. I wish doctors would realize patients don’t make the money they do.

I am very happy with the care Dr. Spiess gave me. He very skillfully cleaned both of my ears so that I can hear much better now, and he confirmed the opinion of the audiologist that a hearing aid will help me. He also gave me some very valuable information when he told me that some dizziness I've experienced lately and thought might be ear related was very likely instead the result of some dehydration (a diagnosis I had suspected but was not even sure was a possible one).

Had throat surgery with Dr. Spiess and the procedure was extremely positive, i felt prepared for the surgery and recovery. The Recovery went exceptionally well, while i know that this is somewhat due to my body, i have to give credit to the surgeon for doing his part to make the recovery as easy as possible. I have read some reviews that gave very low reviews due to the speed/percieved quality of their visits. While i can see some validity in this perspective, i have found that these visits have been what i made of them and certainly not enough of an issue to drop 1 star let alone 4. I like to be prepared with any questions regarding my own health and then i dont hesistate to ask them. I have found that Dr. Spiess was more than willing to provide answers and professional medical opinions to answer my questions. If i had fewer questions than the appointment was otherwise brief, but not so much so that i felt as if i was being neglected.

Dr Spiess became my doctor after a few years of sinus problems. My sinus problem worsened and Dr. Spiess and I decided I would need to do sinus surgery. My surgery went better then expected and I could not be more pleased. I feel so much better!!!! Dr. Spiess and his staff answered all of my questions and they were helpful in getting ready for surgery and following surgery!

Dr. Spiess has been my ENT specialist for a few years but I have seen him more frequently of late due to a ruptured ear drum. He performed two surgeries. He, with his staff, have been great to work with. He is personable- remembering trips I was taking and would ask about the trips upon follow up visits.

Dr. Spiess provided me with excellent care. He answered all of my questions thoroughly and did his due diligence in figuring out my sinus issues. He did my sinus surgery and everything went well. I can now breathe, smell, taste, and hear normally again. I would definitely recommend him to anyone having chronic sinus problems.

I am very happy with the care that i received from Dr. Spiess and his staff. I was a bit it concerned about my inability to breathe at night but Dr Spiess diagnosed and performed my septum surgery successfully. While i expected stints and a great deal of pain following, i had neither. Dr. Spiess uses the latest techniques. He prescribed pain pills following the surgery, i didn't use any of them. My surgery was 100% successful thanks to his skills and knowledge. I would highly recommend Dr Adam Spiess as a caring and knowledgeable ENT physician.

Dr. Spiess took excellent care of my son’s ear tubes at 1.5 years and more recently, his tonsillectomy at 3.5 years. As a parent, it can be scary to put the care of your child in someone else’s hands (especially when it comes to a surgical procedure) but after two experiences doing so I can confidently recommend Dr. Spiess and his team. Thank you again!
