Atlanta, GA |
Dr. Spivey treated my mother for primary biliary cirrhosis as a result of Hepatitis C several years ago. He is a very intelligent man with fabulous bedside manner for the patient AND the family. I can't imagine there being a better doctor in his field. Don't hesitate to see him if he's an option for you.

If you are sick in one of the many areas of Dr Spivey's field of expertise, he NEEDS to be your doctor. He is smart, caring, efficient, disciplined, a great manager (rare for Doctors), and a wonderful bedside manner. I have had first hand experience with his prior location at Mayo Clinic-JAX, where I had my transplant, and had a wonderful experience, and his former place of employment at Emory-ATL, where he and his team saved my live...AGAIN!! Dr Spivey is a Class Act!!
