Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Spector My approach to patient care is collaborative and I see the physician and the patient as a team. I will work with patients to develop a plan that is mutually agreeable. I try to take a %"less is more%" philosophy whenever possible utilizing medications and testing only when needed. I am very excited to be back in the South after three years of living in Boston.

Kind, caring, compassionate, knowledgeable. We've worked with Dr. Spector for approximately 2 years and BY FAR he is the BEST doctor we have ever encountered. If you want a doc that listens and works with you collaboratively, he's it. Dr. Spector needs to be a model for other docs.

You won't find a better sleep neurologist than Dr. Spector! He listens, has a good sense of humor, and has good critical thinking skills. You get the sense that Dr. Spector actually cares. It's apparent he really loves what he does and he isn't condescending or off-putting like other docs can be sometimes. He was the first doc...after I was bounced around to numerous others...who figured out my fatigue problem and gave me my life back! :D
