Millsboro, DE |
Excellent physician and just an all around good man.
in Lewes, DE |
Great sense of humor. Puts you at ease. Explains everything in detail.
in Lewes, DE |
Dr Spieker is very easy to talk to and is very helpful in explaining what my problem is and how he can assist in improving my knee. Thanks.
in Rehoboth Beach, DELewes, DE |
Found out that Dr Spieker does not do surgery just because the MRI shows that something is not perfect. Upon Dr Spieker's advice, I waited 2 weeks and my knee pain, that I've had for 6 weeks, is gone-at least for now as of almost 3 weeks ago.
in Laurel, De |
I have been a patient of Dr. Spieker for many years. I do believe that Dr. Spieker truly cares about the health of his patients. I had shoulder surgery over 20 years ago and never had a problem since. I have always received excellent care from Dr. Spieker and his staff in his office and in the hospital. I would highly recommend Dr. Spieker.
in Milton, DE |
He was able to put me at ease in a somewhat scary situation. He was patient and knowledgeable and I think his whole team, including Henry are awesome!

Frank and easy to understand options. On time - no long waits.

Excellent physician. Have gone to him for a number of different problems which he successfully resolved. Always straight forward and honest. I have and will continue to highly recommend him.
in Millsboro, DE |
Dr. Spieker was very helpful in educating me about my knee issues and he was forthright about the plusses and minus' of possible need for surgery.
in Laurel, DE |
Good experience with the doctor and staff.
in Seaford, DE |
Dr. Spieker was friendly; however, I got the impression that it was all about himself and his accomplishments with acupuncture rather than myself and my condition. Before I saw Dr. Spieker a lab technician came in and wanted to take some x-rays, 3 total in the shoulder area. My problem was not in the shoulder but the neck which was confirmed after I saw Dr. Spieker. He ordered 3 more. Then he said someone would call me within 3 days for another appt. Nobody called back.
in Lewes D.E. |
I have had pain and locking in my right knee for as long as I can remember. One day I woke up and it was swollen like crazy, and quite a bit more painful than usual. I'd gone to doctor Spieker for a few things when I was younger, and decided to come in. After a few appointments we came to find out I had a huge tear in my right lateral meniscus. A few weeks later I came in for surgery, and doctor Spieker and his team did an amazing job. I was back to work in 2 weeks. He completely changed my life
in Lewes, De |

I found him to be very good. He listened to my story. He took the time to address my specific questions. In my first visit he had x-rays taken and made a diagnosis and recommended a treatment.

I came out feeling very confident my problem was identified and the course of treatment recommended was correct.

Dr. Spieker treated me for back and leg problem with Neiro Stimulation System. (NSS). He was very attentive to my needs and explained everything he was doing. I definitely feel better after the procedures although I wish it could have made more of a difference with the pain level. I would definitely recommend trying the NSS treatment with Dr. Spieker.
