Dr. Nicholas Spirtos, DO
Patients see Dr. Spirtos on each visit, as he personally performs ultrasounds and other procedures himself. By tending to routine matters, he can better understand the nuances of each couple's circumstances. He knows from experience that small details can reveal pathways to personalized treatment strategies most likely to result in pregnancy. His infertility treatments have resulted in nearly 6,000 births. "I provide honest opinions to my patients and help them make well-informed decisions," notes Dr. Spirtos. In 1987, following a fellowship in infertility at Detroit's Wayne State University, Dr. Spirtos became the 64th Board Certified Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility specialist in the nation. He then helped develop the first In Vitro Fertilization program in Akron at Akron City Hospital, now part of Summa Health System. He delivered his first In Vitro baby in 1985, just five years after the first In Vitro Fertilization birth took place in the United States. An Associate Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Northeast Ohio Medical University, Dr. Spirtos has contributed to numerous medical journals on topics relating to infertility. In addition, he has also delivered scientific presentations to colleagues and peers both locally and nationally. Dr. Spirtos previously served as Chief of the Division of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility and In Vitro Fertilization/Embryo Transfer at Akron City Hospital, where he is currently affiliated. He is a past president of the Akron Obstetrical and Gynecological Society and is a member of several other professional societies. Born in Chicago of Greek heritage, Dr. Spirtos comes from a family of physicians, extending from his father to four uncles. Dr. Spirtos operates his fertility center by the same timeless values that his parents instilled in him. He insists on integrity, cost efficiency, and a caring, family-like setting for those who seek his help. Except for vacations, Dr. Spirtos works seven days a week. As he explains, women ovulate seven days a week! If you would like to schedule a visit, call 330-376- 2300. Dr. Spirtos serves patients in Cleveland, Akron, Youngstown, all of Northeast Ohio and beyond.

Learn about Dr. Spirtos

Care Philosophy

Dr. Spirtos is the kind of clinically-oriented physician you will appreciate. When possible, he starts with simple approaches to infertility treatment that many times result in success without the initial need for complex, higher-cost options. Adhering to a philosophy that sometimes less is more, patients receive treatments individually tailored to meet their budgets and personal beliefs. Most patients complete infertility treatments without In Vitro Fertilization.

"I give couples choices and they choose which course of action is most appropriate," says Dr. Spirtos. "Every pregnancy is a miracle, but some pregnancies require couples to work hard. My personality is that I like challenges and I am willing to work with them."

Athens, OH |
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.
Cleveland, OH |
No thanks. His bedside manner leaves you wondering why he went into the profession. As Mr. Wonderful says on shark tank MONEY!!!
Akron, OH |

I love Dr. Spirtos!! He always takes time with the patient. You will never feel rushed!! The staff is amazing!! Sandra answers all of your questions and always has a smile on her face. It's nice going to an office knowing your getting the best care possible.
in Akron, OH |
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.
in Ravenna, OH |
Dr. Spirtos is very knowledgeable. I have seen 4 Reproductive Endocrinologists and he is the only one to get me pregnant on the first try.
in Louisville, OH |
He's the best. Don't go anywhere else but here.
