Dr Spady is literally the best doctor I have ever seen. She takes time not only to treat you, but to get to know you personally. She first saw me at my worse, and treated me when no other doctor could figure out my disease. With her care and treatment, she has given me my quality of life back. I’d give 10 stars if I could. Also she has a great staff!! You may wait a bit, but keep in mind she gives each patient equal time, and never rushes any patient. Simply a wonderful doctor!!!!!

Dr Spady is the most caring and compassionate physician I’ve ever seen. I hobbled in her office in so much pain I could barely function. She took my hand , looked me in the eye and said “I can help you!” And she has!! I highly recommend her. The wait time for appointments is worth it.

My only complaint about seeing Dr. Shady was the waiting time. Before running any tests, she just looked at me and rattled off several things that I am suffering from. Not only that, she made me feel very comfortable, spoke in a language that I could understand and she has a great bedside manner and personality. I have recommended her to several ppl and will continue to do so.

I am 63 years old, and in all of these years I have never had such a wonderfully caring, insightful, and dedicated doctor, with the level of intelligence, that I firmly believe Dr. Spady has. She has impressed me since our first appointment when she practiced in Hammond La. She diagnosed my problem in a matter of minutes, after years of treatment by other doctors, with no answers. I have every faith in her ability. We, her patients, are fortunate to have her. I am blessed to call her friend!
