Perfection. That's how I describe Dr. Spina. He is the epitome of what one can hope for in a physician, a psychiatrist, a human. He is an amazing doctor, who's treatment approach is working together with the patient every step along the way. He listens, has conversations, is compassionate, and truly has a vested interest in the wellbeing of all of his patients. Dr. Spina's calling is obviously to help his patients live their best life, whether that is through talk therapy or meds. 15/10. :)

Ever since I stepped foot into Dr. Spina's office, every health concern I've had has been met with the utmost respect, care, and compassion. Every other psychiatrist I have ever been to never took into account what I had to say about my experiences. Dr. Spina has been a breath of fresh air and I am so grateful that I have found him! He communicates with me between sessions and checks in on me, which is something that really speaks volumes to how much he really cares.

Dr Spina is the type of psychiatrist that all doctors in this field should aspire to be like. This doctor listens, doesn’t judge, helps you find your way. For more years than I can count, Dr Spina has always been available when needed. He has provided the appropriate support and is always able to explain things in terms that are understandable. And, he gets me. Honestly, I hope he never retires.

I cannot say enough positive things about Dr. Spina. I started seeing him after I had already tried six other doctors, who were awful. I was in a very bad mental state at my first appointment. I had almost given up hope. Now, nearly 3 years later I am a completely different person. I look forward to my visits because I learn so much. Dr. Spina is such a lovely, respectable person. He is genuinely a caring physician and it reflects in his treatment modalities.

I’ve had full confidence in doc for over 15 years since we first met. Unlike some psychiatrists, doc treats you as a person and not cattle. Great man. Highly recommend.

I have been seeing Doctor Spina for many years now. He is an excellent doctor. He is easy to talk to. Very comforting. He is so great at what he does and has helped me with my anxiety tremendously. He is also very professional. I would recommend him to anyone that has any kind of depression or anxiety. He is the best doctor I have ever gone to. I can’t thank him enough.

When I was referred by my primary care doctor to see a psychiatrist I was indifferent, but boy was it a blessing! I found Dr.Spina after searching in the Pittsburgh area & I do not think my words could express or do his quality of care justice. Dr.Spina scheduled me immediately & from the start, he treated me like family. It is no question that he genuinely cares about his patients & takes the time to know & help YOU, not just a diagnosis. I would recommend Dr.Spina to ANYONE!
