If one needs surgery then this is the highest recommendation I can give. Doctor Leo Spector and his staff are some of the best I have ever encountered. Everything went like clockwork. I would like to thank Doctor Spector for his knowledge and sincere caring for my well fare.

Dr. Spector has always been very courteous and professional. He always greets me with a smile and explains things to me in a way I can understand. Above all, the biggest impact he has made has been erasing the back problem I had. I can now look forward to a more productive life. Dr. Spector is the BEST!

Wonderful doctor. Great personality. Dr. Spector was very patient with me and listened to my medical concerns. He has guided me to a Physiatrist who will develop a physical rehabilitation program that will help me to regain my spinal health. :)

He is the best spine doctor you can ever find.I am very pleased with my results.

Dr. Leo Spector saved my life, and by that I mean he made my life worth living again. I spent 30 years in agony with back pain. I’m 62 years old. Dr. Spector performed my fusion surgery and I now feel more like 30 than when I was 30. Over the course of 30 years, I’d seen many doctors and had multiple surgeries. He’s absolutely factual in his professional conversations, understands what he asks you to do, and knows what it means to live in pain. Not only that, but he actually gave me relief

Dr. Spector was very patient and explained the procedure of lumbar fusion very carefully, three times over a year and a half as I kept putting it off another 6 months. I am sure he knew it would be needed, but I had to realize that myself. I was ready when I could not walk 100 meters without pain. I am a year out, nearly pain free, and can walk several miles. I had all the modern hardware implanted and am grateful for it. Get two opinions Top praise for Dr. spector. Happy choice for me.

Dr. Leo Spector was very careful in his examination and recommendations. He advised lumbar fusion, but was patient and waited until the symptoms progressed and a year later I was on board with the decision.

I saw Dr. Spector in April 2016 had an MRI came back for the results. Dr.Spector was so kind and passionate , even thou he knew he was not going to be doing surgery on my spine he took extra time with me and my husband and set me up with the most wonderful specialist .He went beyond any Dr. that I have had and if you need a surgeon I would not hesitate to recommend Dr.Spector. I want to thank you again.
Great bedside manner. Caring and compassionate. Not that I want to see him again but he is my only choice for my neck issue. Highly recommend!!!!!
