My appointment was at 11:30 and I was called in at 11:30... This was my first time ever seeing this kind of a specialist, so I was a bit nervous, naturally... Dr. Spitz was pleasant and kind, very patient, he answered all my questions and explained everything to me. The treatment was unpleasant (as expected), but short and must have been VERY professional — 'cause it was successful and fixed the problems I was suffering from!!! I can only say good things about him!

In Dec 2018, Dr. Spitz performed Laparoscopic Subtotal Colectomy, at the age of 63, to address Colonic Inertia. I am now 2 mos post-op, & the results are phenomenal. Dr. Spitz gave me a fresh start at life after many years of debilitating constipation issues. Prior to surgery my diet was very limited, I was dependent on large quantities of daily laxatives, and had lots of discomfort throughout each and every day. Travel was impossible. After surgery, life is much better.

Dr. Spitz was very thorough! He answered any questions I had and made sure I knew exactly what he was doing. He explained things well and was very understanding to my concerns. I would definitely recommend him!

I just had my second pilonidal cystectomy done today by Dr. Spitz and I can't think of one bad thing to say about him as a doctor(aside from directing me with a knife twice, lol), his bedside manner to me and my guests before surgery, the way he educated me about my options this time and called me on my stuff in 2014 for the first one. I needed this surgery done before I could get another one and his team worked with me and got me in quickly and I greatly appreciate it.

Thanks to the concern of Dr Spitz and his office my cancer was diagnosed quicker and I was able to begin treatment sooner. His office is extremely prompt and considerate when I can with concerns and need to make apps. I trust Dr. spitz with my life.
