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.
in Rehoboth Beach, DE |

I have been seeing Dr. Speaker for several years now and have always been very satisfied with him and his recommendations. Dr.Spieker is very easy to talk to and explains things so that I can understand them.
in Bethany Beach, DE |
Takes time to evaluate situations. Explains all options to you. He does not rush to surgery. Is enthusiastic about physical therapy and homeopathic options. He resolved shoulder issues I had from artillery shrapnel wounds for years. He also treated my torn knee meniscus resulting from a crazy twist in the gym. Both treatments greatly improved my quality of life. He is an athlete that has injuries himself and has stayed very fit so he is aware of how your body will likely react to treatment.
in Lewes, DE |
An MRI showed a torn meniscus. I expected surgery, but Dr. Spieker was cautious. Since pain hd subsided, he suggested waiting a month for a follow-up before deciding. Now I am active with no pain, so thankful I did not have surgery at this time. I appreciate Dr. Spieker's thoughtful attention to my many questions.
Philadelphia, PA |
Dr Spieker explained my injury and options to remedy it. I was very confident in his analysis.he didn't try to push for an operation as another Dr. Had. I would highly recommend him.
in Lewes, DE |
I saw Dr. Spieker for follow-up with a broken shoulder (no surgery); he immediately switched me into a more aggressive form of physical therapy. With his recommended change (and help of Shore Movement Pete Mohacey) I made significant progress on my full range of motion. Dr. Spieker understood and encouraged my desire to continue with my weightlifting and to get back to 100%. I highly recommend Dr. Spieker and thank him for having my shoulder back and happily progressing in the gym.

in Lewes, DE |
Dr. Spieker listens to your problem, is very perceptive, explains what could be wrong. He doesn't just jump to surgery, he recommends PT and if this helps then all is well. My husband and I both have been to him, we have complete trust in Dr. Spieker.

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 Ocean View, DE |
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 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 |
Efficient, explained my knee problems, identified proposed solutions/treatments, listened to my concerns, reacted.
