I hope to make all patient experiences positive; however, I understand it is unrealistic to fulfill all patients needs. I monitor comments periodically and will take critical comments in the most constructive way to improve patient experiences in the future. To those of you who have taken the time to provide your experiences...THANK YOU!!!

We selected Dr. Spoon as the OB Doctor for our pregnancy. He is extremely helpful and detail oriented on every single examination. The office environment is the most organized I have experienced before. The staffs are friendly as well. I'll suggest you notified any related health concern to Spoon. Even though He is not capable to answer the question, he will still keep the condition in note and track. His office also response the question fast. Definitely will recommend to anyone I know.

I enjoy getting to know my patients lives and their needs.  I strive to make your experience easy. comfortable and productive. Medicine is not always so black and white, so I intend on making it as understandable as possible.  I don't want you to worry! We've got this! 

Dr. Spoon Jr. says...

I enjoy all aspects of OB GYN, whether it is problems of the young, middle age, or the "Golden Years."  Menstrual issues, hormone imbalances, fertility problems or pregnancy related care... I like it all. General gynecologic concerns such as STD screening, Cancer screening, painful conditions or urological problems, I intend to help make your life better.

Dr. Spoon Jr. says...

Obstetrical care-I take pride in being informative and making it fun...Babies ARE beautiful!! 

All kinds of gynecological surgeries, especially minimally invasive procedures which makes life so much easier on the recovery. I strive to make the experience as painless as possible...and to make it look good!!
