The staff at the office for Dr Spurgas are amazing, you have any questions with paperwork they either answer the phone right away or they get back to you very fast. The nursing staff in the office are hard working, any questions they help assist you. Very compassionate. Pa Jon Streeter is great. He takes the time with patients, cares about them.
