He has the rudest receptionist in the world. She has no manners or courtesy what so ever. This doctor is very old and doesn't listen to you. Save your time go somewhere else.

Dr. Spindler is the BEST!! He's knowledgeable and caring, and I wouldn't go to any other rheumatologist. Over the years he has helped me with SO many issues, and when I had to move away for a few years, it was awful. So glad to be back in Houston.
