Patient Reviews (4)
in Clawson , MI |
Started taking my son to Dr. Spanaki when his seizures were increasing and his previous doctor actually told me she did not know what else to do for him. We found Dr. Spanaki who was very reassuring and patient. She was beneficial in evaluating our sons condition. We really appreciate her efforts to control his seizures and help ease our minds. Dr. Spanaki is a true professional. I would highly recommended her.

Dr. Spanaki is an amazing neurologist! She is truly one of a kind. I've never met a doctor that cares about her patients more than Dr. Spanaki does. She is not only very kind, helpful and smart, but she will sit with you until all of your questions are answered. She makes you a part of your care plan. She is very knowledgeable and explains everything in ways you can easily understand. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a neurologist, especially when it comes to seizures.

As a patient of Dr. Spanaki, I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a nuerologist specifically in the areas of epilepsy and seizures. Dr. Spanaki stays current on new medication and procedures. She treats her patients as individuals with separate needs and is quick to respond when left a message. My pharmacists have often commented about how responsive she is. Dr. Spanaki is the one doctor I do look forward to seeing. I often refer to her as Wonder Woman.
in Almont, MI |
No other doctors I met in the course of having seizures for 30 years impressed me as being more concerned for my welfare than Dr. Spanaki-Varelas has every time I've seen her. I think that she is one of a kind. I could not recommend her highly enough. She came to my room in Henry Ford Hospital Detroit numerous times following my brain surgery to see if I was doing OK, and she went out of her way to make sure I felt well cared for. God bless her. I've remained seizure free for 4 1/2 years.
