Dr. Spector is absolutely through and meticulous with regard to treating serious foot problems. He provided me with real relief from nagging Plantar Fasciitis as well as another foot problem.

I have been a patient of Dr. Spector's for over 10 years and would recommend him to anyone. His approach to foot care is comfortably conservative, which I personally find reassuring having had unsuccessful surgeries years ago. He spends a great deal of time with each patient yet there very rarely is more than a few minutes spent in the waiting room. All of his staff are pleasant and courteous, making each visit a very positive experience.

I had a very painful ingrown and infected toenail last fall. It was the only time I've ever had that and I was very nervous about the procedure to remove it. Dr. Spector and his staff were very kind, patient, and reassuring. The day I went in for the procedure, he was very kind, explained what he was doing, and there wasn't a bit of pain involved. I actually a very pleasant and relaxing time.

My mom went to Dr. Spector until her death last year. He was fabulous with her. She had always been in pain for years until she stated going to Dr. Spector Now my husband and I are patients too. He has an excellent bedside manner and is an excellent doctor. A rare combination these days. The office staff has always been pleasant to deal with and you are taken at your appointment time. I would definitely recommend to my family and friends going to Dr. Spector.

Cozy and warm atmosphere in the office. Office staff friendly and helpful - from the initial phone call to the time of arrival. Dr. Spector was very compassionate and easy to talk to. He listened to my concerns, took x-rays in the office, and diagnosed the problem. I had seen couple of other foot doctors in the area who did not help me. Within 1 week, I am pain-free for the 1st time in months. Highly recommend the office of Dr. Spector!!!!

I had terrible pains in my feet for twenty years. Went to at least 10 doctors who were going to take the bone out of my big woe, shot me up with steroids etc etc. Dr Spector cured my feet and sent me for physical therapy. I am 81 years old and can walk two miles every day with out pain. I highly recommend Dr Spector to everyone.
