Completely disorganized office staff. Took my son to the doctor and wasted my money and time. Had to call 4-5 times just to learn if they have received the lab results. Front desk don't answer calls or leave you on hold for 15-20 mins and then drop the calls. They DO NOT callback once they receive lab results to setup a follow-up appointment. If you call around 4pm, it goes to answering service even though front desk staff are scheduled to work till 5pm. Doctor also don't speak proper English.

Love Dr. Spinetti, however, his front office staff is rude and argumentative and talks down to people. We would look for another Dr. if we did not really like Dr. Spinetti so much.

Terrible experience with both dr and staff. My child suffered for an extra month because of their negligence of patient care. I found another dr after the second visit to Spinetti office.

The wait is a little on the overwhelming side but once you're in the observation room the Doctor is very informative and observing. High statured and knowledgeable

Often waited weeks for appointments, would also regularly wait 2 hours to even see the doctor and when I did it was for 5 mins at most. He completely disregards any questions, if you're having issues etc then sends you on your way with whatever treatment he alone determines is the best, I wouldn't be surprised if he receives pharmaceutical subsidies
