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.

Dr Spitzer has been generally helpful-but a bit faddish-he needs to Chill a little-maybe age and experience will improve upon this-secondary reccommendations-not helpful at all !
