No nonsense physician. Took one look at a mass in my throat and immediately had me scheduled for surgery and caught the C world early. Great doctor.

Dr Spires is the best. He actually cares about his patients & their well being above the all mighty dollar. He is a brilliant Doctor with bedside manners. My family has been seeing him since 1990 & we have no regrets.

Dr. spires made time to see me on a semi-emergency and helped me make an informed decision about medication(s) that we think gave me a serious reaction from the medication. I think he helped me make the correct decision.

Not only is Dr Spires a very knowledgeable doctor he is also a very caring doctor. He explains everything thoroughly so that you understand completely what is going on. I have been seeing him for years and would never go to another doctor. I trust he and his staff completely and will continue using him and refer my friends and family to him
