I was a patient of Dr. Spanier's for many years, as he & I worked together to try & find an answer/accurate diagnosis of various symptoms. Tho had 'mild' battles w/anorexic & bulimic tendencies, I was originally seen & treated for major depression, chemical imbalance, mild OCD, & possible Bipolar as well/whewie, lol! So, he had quite a challenge w/ me! Tried most all avail. Rx's, etc, & I b/c worse! On a hunch, & labwk, ex was lacing my food/coffee-but not w/ my Rx's! Dr Spanier's the very best!
A literal lifesaver. I have been seeing him for over 9 years. As I struggled to recover from an eating disorder he was the only provider whose advice I trusted consistently and who has seen me through to the point of solid recovery. I see him now for medication management and he is as concerned with my health and wellbeing as when I was in the throws of my ED. I do not know what our community will do when he retires. He is an invaluable resource for many people who suffer with ED's.

He is a personal lifesaver and a champion for women suffering from Eating Disorders. Part chemist, part artist, he approaches the hardest moments with humor and wit. I started seeing him at 13, and have been with him for the last 16 years. I cannot recommend him more.

Dr Spainer started seeing me when I was a young child around the age of 12 for anorexia. I was at a point in my life where I had no direction and was so scared. I had no idea the battle I would face, and I could not have done it, nor would I be where I am today without this man. I saw him all through school until high school. He will forever be in my heart, he is an amazing, caring and sincere doctor. thank you from the bottom of my heart, Gwen Wood
