Care Philosophy

I am a solo Internist who simply puts my family members in the place of my patients. This allows me a very easy decision-making process: I just think, "what would I do if my mother/father/sister/brother or child was sitting in the place of you, 'the patient?' " What would I do in terms of tests, the specialists I choose to refer to, surgeries, medications, etc? It truly doesn't have to be any more complicated than that!

Doc Spector is tops! Not only an outstanding physician, but a caring and supportive practitioner with great customer service. Been with him for a decade, as has the whole family now that the kids are beyond pediatrics. Always will be.

Make sure if he says you have a "fatty tumor" and "you'll get more" and its NOTHING to worry about.... YOU GET A SECOND OPINION!

This doctor is informed, compassionate and always gives you the time you need to ask questions. My husband and I both see him and are glad he was recommended by our adult son.

I have seen Dr. Spector 6 years now. He by far is the best doctor out there. The knowledge he has is incredible, and I'm super confident in what he tells me. Every time I come to his office, the staff is super sweet, and efficient. Everyone there goes above and beyond to fit the needs of the patients, and I just strongly recommend his practice !

Have been going to Dr. Spector for years since he was in his old office across from the Festival in Bel Air. Great doctor, compassionate with his patients he really does care about them, genuine easy to talk to (Friendly) his staff is pretty good as well sometimes it's hard to get through to his office during active hours when you call - but that really isn't a fault on their part otherwise great office, decent location - great staff, and great doctor.

Staffing extremely rude and inefficient, I think Dr. Spector does not how the staff is treating patients, they hung up on you all the time, they make mistakes and they blame on you and the worst thing they do not let you talk to your doctor. I'm very upset because I have been feeling ill.. I miss Amanda so much.

if you want an accessible Doctor DON'T go to Dr Karl Spector. My husband and I moved from CA. I deal with acute pain due to numerous conditions and my husband has severe pain due to needing knee replacement in both knees. I called Dr Spector's per recommendations given by friends and family. Neither my husband or myself ever saw or spoke to Dr Spector. Everytime we made an appt we only saw his PA, and she took it upon herself to cancel our pain medication and change the strengh of another.
