I sort of liked Dr. Spiritos quirky personality and his love for his Greek heritage. I didn't mind that he was straight-forward. However, I can only conclude he is in it for the money even though he claims to be "affordable." They make you come in multiple days in a row for appointments so you keep having to pay your co-pay each day, and he collects the insurance money for separate visits. He said that trying to get pregnant would be a waste of time because my wife had "bad eggs." However, he took our money and tried artificial insemination. Another physician I told this to was baffled that he tried artificial insemination without the use of Clomid. He said the only way for us to have children would be through an egg donor. An egg donor pregancy costs approximately $30,000. On top of that, you're not even guaranteed a successful pregnancy! He never gave us a prescription for Clomid pills. I could only surmise that this is the case because he doesn't get anything out of it.

My daughter is now 30 years old. Dr. Spirtos was able to help me achieve my pregnancy with insemination being diagnosed with PCOS and husband who had a vasectomy reversed with low sperm count. My experience 30 years ago was a positive one. I think you’re vulnerable when you go through infertility treatment, hormones on high. You have to realize there are many different personalities out there in the world. I found Dr. Spirtos to have a dry sense of humor which made my experience much easier to endure. When dealing with a “scientist” you have to remember they deal with facts and numbers and strategies. There isn’t always room for warm and fuzzy when their minds are constantly in thought. I appreciated that about Dr. Spirtos and was grateful for his expertise all those years ago.

Dr. Spirtos is amazing. After 3 failed inseminations &1 failed IVF w/another dr in Akron, Dr. Spirtos got me pregnant with my first son, then my 2nd. My 1st is almost 15 yrs old. #2 is 9 yrs. Spirtos is incredible. Takes you on like you are family. I truly love this man. IVF 9x total. Worth every penny. Spirtos is my hero. I love the man. If you want a family, go to Spirtos. The others are sub-par, in my opinion. I am an RN, and I know when I know a great physician.

Do not be expected to be treated like a human being. To Dr. Spirtos it is your privilege to have him get you pregnant. Never question his decision making or choices in your care. When I miscarried, I was told "you can see there is no heartbeat. get dressed and come to my office and we will schedule your D+C." AVOID this doctor. You have so many better choices in Akron.

Dr. Spirtos was caring, respectful, efficient, and very good at his job, thankfully. He was thorough in his exams, testing, and explanation of reasons for doing them. He made me feel like an individual, not another name or dollar. I really liked that his office is small-the continuity of seeing the same staff each visit was comforting. Every one of them was helpful, personal, and friendly, which I believe to be extremely important when going through something as difficult as infertility.
