i went in to have something looked at on ky leg and I was seen by nancy. Her and her nurse were fantastic! The ended up removing the growth on the spot and, me not being so great with needles or anything doctor related, i got very anxious. they were great though! made me feel relaxed and explained everything to me prior to doing anything. Both were also great about just having a normal conversation and actually seemed to care! overall-great staff.

I'm not sure where they bad reviews are coming from. He was professional, helpful and funny. I will go back.

I scheduled a last minute appointment with Dr Spiro about a skin issue and was pleasantly surprised after seeing poor reviews. I thought his staff and RN were friendly and knowledgeable and I mostly importantly really liked the doctor himself. He took his time in accessing the issue and then gave me plenty of information and time to ask questions.
