At the request of a friend, I went out of state for a third opinion to see Dr. speaker. He treated me like a member of his own family. He took time, he was kind, honest and didn't rush into suggesting surgery and gave me other alternatives. I would highly recommend him for your orthopedic needs.

I have been a patient of Dr. Spieker for about 30 years. He is professional, friendly and very caring about his patients. I have had both shoulder and knee surgery and could not have been more satisfied with Dr. Spieker and his staff.

Does a great job and really knows how to get you fixed properly. He did rota-tor cuff surgery on me and has been working on my knee issue. He does an excellent job and briefs you very well on your condition and the procedures to be used.

I feel Dr. Speaker is one of the best doctors in the Lewes area. He listens well and does a good job explaining conditions and appropriate options. He has operated on me 2 times and both have stood the test of time. I have also consulted him on other problems. In restaurant terms "Would I recommend to a friend? Would I order again?" In a heartbeat!

Dr. Spieker has always been top notch in my book. He actually invests his time listening to my concerns and it is obvious he takes a great deal of pride in his work. I have had a twenty year professional relationship with this doctor and he has repaired just about all four corners of my worn out body and then some. I can’t recommend him enough!

Dr. Spieker is amazing. He listens to what the problem is, and presents solutions that WORK. I suffered for years with knee pain, and today I'm pain-free WITHOUT surgery. I'd recommend him to anyone with joint problems.

Dr. Spieker is a consummate professional who clearly excels at his work; he reviewed my case history initially, then established a treatment plan which didn't involve surgery...treatments took some time, and I have to admit I was skeptical up until the end of the 'shots' into my knee. But after 2 more weeks, I have turned a significant corner and can now walk and workout relatively pain free, and the pain continues to subside...GREAT WORK FROM A GREAT DOC...

Two doctors told me I needed surgery for my shoulder but my research told me otherwise. I went to Dr. Spieker about a year ago (he advised strongly against surgery) and I am almost symptom free. Had to go outside of my insurance network to see him but it saved me big time in the long run! Secret to his success in my experience: passion and knowledge in his field and he actually (wait for it...) LISTENS. That made all the difference.

I am 50+ years of age, so I've seen one or two doctors in my time (sigh). Dr. Spieker is effortless with his craft; and a pleasure to be in the company of... He makes his patients feel important, spends quality time educating; and moreover, his bedside manner removes the overall anxiety one would feel being at the doctors office. In my observations, you see the connection with his staff as well, for he truly cares about people - a rarity anymore. Thank you, Sir.

Doctor Spieker is excellent in what he does. He explained what the problem was with my knees and walked me through the procedure to fix both of them. He and his staff were courteous and caring.

Dr. Spieker is very knowledgeable in his field of medicine. He always took the time to thoroughly explain my issue and offer solutions. His action plan helped tremendously without the need for excessive testing and surgical procedures. I never had to wait an extended period of time for my appointment. The office seemed to run on schedule during my visits. Overall, I found the staff to be friendly. I would recommend Dr. Spieker and Orthopaedic Associates of Southern Delaware.
