    Dr Robert Spiera was the first doctor to diagnosis my Stiff Person Syndrome, after years of visiting drs! He thought out of the box when all the other doctors were looking elsewhere. He will spend extra time researching issues and referrals (if needed) to be sure you receive the best care. He's a brilliant practitioner.
