The first visit he was very professional, kind, and caring, he listened, took time with my son and even the immediate family as well. He answered all questions and addressed any concerns. A plan was in place to follow thru with. Unfortunately the longer my son went to him all this wore off. He did not listen to my son, he did not address issues, he didn’t care. Dr. Spishakoff never returns any messages or phone calls The plans he sent in place never came thru. Called him in a crises and n

Dr. Spishakoff takes his time with patients making sure all wiestioms are answered. His office staff is friendly and helpful. The inly drawback is that the wait time can be long but that is due to the doctor taking his time and listening to his patients

My mother went to see Dr Spishakoff after having been in the ED and urged by those doctors to see him due to having fluid in her lungs. Dr Spishakoff came to the front desk himself and told my mother that he would not see her because he was not sure her "insurance would pay" and that he wanted to get home to his family (it was July 3rd). Grievance filed with the insurance company. This is for the clinic on Ogden.
