Dr. Spayde was my surgeon in Feb. 2012 and he is the reason I am able to be active and work in a field where I am on my feet all day. I trusted his judgment completely and it paid off. Jonathan was wonderful as well. I was a teenager when I had the surgery and Jonathan and Dr. Spayde were wonderful to my parents as well as to me. Look no further for a great spine surgeon.

Dr. Spayde eased my concerns with this surgery & explained more to me about my situation than two previous appointments with other doctors. His course of action went beyond what the other doctors had identified as needing treatment. He is thorough & uses the most updated surgical methods. I highly recommend Dr. Spayde.

Dr. Spayde and his staff have been wonderful. After suffering with pain for 37 years I can now enjoy my life again. Not enough thank you's to express my appreciation.

Dr. Spayde performed a laminectomy in June and I'm completely back to normal after suffering with nerve pain for six years. My surgery and recovery was incredibly easy and I can't recommend this doctor highly enough. I put off the surgery because of fear of complications, but in hindsight I suffered unnecessarily. Had I known what I do now I would've had surgery done after my first MRI in 2014. Great Doctor and staff.

I can't even tell you how much I appreciate Dr. Spayde and his PA, Jonathan. I had major back surgery in Aug 2011 and was back playing competitive tennis 6 months later. I am still playing to this day, plus pickleball, and aquatic classes at age 61. I would highly recommend Dr. Spayde and his whole staff to anyone (which I have many times). He is so personable and very positive in his bedside manner which you don't always find in surgeons. He is state-of-the-art and knows what he's doing!

I can’t say enough nice things about Dr. Erik Spayde & P.A. Jonathan Rice. Dr. Spayde is a GREAT surgeon. He is so caring, compassionate and knowledgeable. Jonathan is Dr. Spayde’s equal. My surgery was complicated but Dr Spayde made it seem like it was routine to him. He really knows what he is doing! If you’re considering back or neck surgery, I highly recommend you go see Dr Spayde! It could make all the difference for the rest of your life. I trusted him with my life & I'm glad I did!
