Dr. Speiser is our family Ophthalmologist. He is great with kids and gives very thorough exams. Dr. Speiser is patient and very gentle with his patients. The on staff Optometrist is also excellent! The office staff is friendly and helpful. We never have to wait in the waiting room. It is an all around very pleasant experience to go to Dr. Speiser for eye exams.

I have been going to Dr. Speiser for years. He is a wonderful doctor. He always explains things to me so I can understand them and always takes the time to answer any questions I have. The rest of the staff is always very nice and accommodating. I refer everyone I know to him.

This guy is the WORST! Not only is he a horrible dr. but he is truly 1 of the worst human beings I've ever encountered! What he put me thru was beyond unforgivable! He has Zero social skills; is basically the strange nerdy type, but yet sadistic enough to completely manipulate his patients with totally deplorable & unnecessary scare tactics - then lacks the integrity to rectify his vile mistakes. A really wretched guy - who has no business being a dr. or working w/ people! An absolute JERK!
