in Slidell, LA |
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.

She is the most caring and compassionate doctor I've met in years. She takes her time and listens to her patients and gives the best of care.
in Ponchatoula, La. |
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!

in Covington, La |
Dr.Spade was the most caring and concerned doctor I have ever met. From what I understand she is one for the hardest doctors to get an appointment with with and now I can understand why. As a new patient I had to wait 4 months for an appointment but it was well worth it. Can't say enough good about her.

Dr Spady and her nurse Shelly are the best when it comes to health care one word stands out, EXCELLENCE
