One of THE best! I have a complicated case. He never rushes, is extremely thorough & goes above & beyond with dx & ordering which I appreciate. He reminds me of my son. I believe ppl giving him low marks simply don't understand him and/or don't have endo related issues. I understand how he communicates & works because my son is the same way. A brilliant overachiever who is skilled at multitasking. He is researching your issues while you talk. Age-ism is very real. I prefer young drs. Others dont

Waited two months for appt. Was very sick during that time and it was very hard to get TO the appt. I found him to be cloyingly nice (disorienting) and I gave him a written rundown of my illness (easier than speaking it over & over). He felt my thyroid and then asked me if I had stress. I said yes (of course), he attributed my extreme illness to being depressed! I was so insulted. He ordered no blood tests. He then sat down & said goodbye. I have Hashimoto's. He didn't bother to test for it.

He is young but very professional and knowledgeable, asks me lots of questions every time i see him, types everything in (so i get why some people think he doesn't listen - its because he is writing everything down), I'm 33 and i totally understand this behavior. Always sends in his notes even after appointments and after tests (I don't have to wait for next appointment to get his opinion). I could not ask for a better doctor in my condition.

I was referred by my PCP to Spitzer for thyroid issues. I waited months for the appointment and it was a waste of time. He is not knowledgeable, only tests TSH, ignored my list of symptoms. He ran a few labs that I demanded but he did not know what to do with the results. He adjusted meds and I landed in the ER within a week and went back to my old dose myself and waited several more months to get into to see someone else.

Awesome! Genuine concern, goes above and beyond to take time and answer any questions and concerns. Total trust in him. Gives the time you need, even if he is running behind and you are late waiting to see him. I waited over 45 minutes but, he still thru lunch gave me his time I needed. He has motivated me and I look forward to my next visit. #drspitzer,

Dr Spitzer did listen and writes notes on the laptop as I spoke. He reviewed his impressions and allowed me to comment with corrections. He outlined an approach that involved me in the health process. Endocrinology is about observation, testing, and determining from what I tell him, to tie in the relevant symptoms with a biological cause. It is not a simple take this pill and call me in two weeks. I did not arrive at my condition overnight, I prepared to work with him to correct what can be done

I felt like he wasn't listening to any of my concerns or symptoms, almost like he wasn't believing me...

Dr. Spitzer is pessimistic. He doesn't seem to have faith in his patients. He tends to spend most of his time looking at the laptop instead of the patient sitting next to him. There is always a long wait. I've given this office a fair chance. Pickings are small in this area, but I will be going elsewhere from now on.
