Dr. Spar was my primary doc from around 1997 until I moved out of state in 2018. She listens and cares, and I always found her to be accessible and helpful. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

Dr. Spar is the best doctor I've ever had. She is always prepared to answer any questions and she reviews my chart before she sees me, so she is very familiar with my medical issues.
