I have been a patient with Dr. Spirakes for several years and would never change to someone else. I love her dearly for saving my life. I followed her advise to have yearly testing on possible future health problems. She was able to keep track on these and advised me of what care I needed. She cares for her patients as if they were her family. I give her TEN STARS !

I love Dr. Spirakes. She is everything you would want in a primary care physician. She is attentive, thorough, listens to your concerns and spends time with you. I only stopped going to her because we no longer live in the area. The only complaint I have is that sometimes the wait times to see her can be a little long

We have been seeing Dr, Spirakes for years. My husband and I see Dr, Spirakes and we are African Americans. I have pretty good health so normally when I see her it is for my yearly routine exam. Nevertheless, when I get there it feels like I’m visiting family. We discuss children, grandchildren, shoes, unhealthy diets etc. I always make sure to bring an recent family portrait. Oh yeah we talk about my health too! It is always a pleasure. Thank you Dr. Spirakes. Linda Hobbs

I had my annual wellness meeting with Dr. Spirakes January 29th. I am thrilled to have her as my Doctor and appreciate her vast knowledge and wise counsel regarding my well-being. She is friendly, honest, thorough and very efficient. She is easy to talk with and answers question honestly and is open to discussion of medial issues and treatment plans. I also appreciate the efficient manner in which her office handles Prescription and medical orders with no hassles at all. She is a great person and a wonderful Doctor.

Dr. Spirakes is wonderful! Not only is she a thorough, knowledgeable, and trustworthy doctor, but she really takes the time to get to know her patients. I go into my appointments feeling like I'm catching up with an old friend rather then speaking to my doctor. I also love her tenacity in encouraging her patients to live healthy and adopt positive lifestyle choices. I feel that she truly cares about her patients, which is extremely important in a provider.
