Dr. Spitz is very professional and knowledgeable, and he has a great personality! He took the time to give a detailed explation about my surgical procedure and the risks, and he recommended an approach that will be less traumatic and will speed my recovery. I think he’s great and based on his 5-Star ranking, his other patients agree!

The concern is my nausea and stomach pain on the center right side of my abdomen below my ribs. Dr. Spitz seemed very concerned and felt all over my abdomen to see where the pain was and wants to get to the root of the problem.

Dr. Spitz was amazing to meet with, he made me feel comfortable in making the decision to not have the Bariatric surgery. He gave me the added confidence to continue on my weight loss journey, and I have lost another 5 lbs since last week when I saw him.

Dr Spitz has an amazing way to frankly tell you the truth about your health and yet not belittle. He builds up the confidence needed to start a new normal. He is Spokane’s version of Dr “Now”.'m m m

Very productive visit. Front staff very welcoming and congenial. Dr Spitz was excellent. He was able to answer all of my questions to my satisfaction and throughout the whole counseling session I felt like I was the most important person to him at that time. He was in no hurry at all and made sure all of my questions were answered prior to taking me to a case worker. I believe he was with me for over forty minutes. Very happy with this office. All of the staff were great!

Outstanding surgeon that performed an RNY Gastric Bypass on me in Dec 2018. Minimal incisions and minimal pain. I especially liked Dr. Spitz' bedside manner. He followed up daily post surgery - and was always willing to answer questions. I especially appreciate his straightforward, professional manner. His surgical team was very professional and thorough. The Rockwood Surgical Group performs more bariatric surgeries than any on the west coast. Dr. Spitz is the best of the best.
