Absolutely fantastic. Dr. Sprecher was able to figure out what was going on with my child. My daughter was very comfortable with her and her staff and was able to open up. My only regret is that I waited so long to schedule this evaluation.

Dr Sprecher handled our daughter with the upmost professional care. I am taken back by some other reviews. One reason for a lengthy wait is because the evaluation process takes 2 to 4 hours. The second appointment is usually 90 minutes but Dr. Sprecher took the extra time she needed at the followup which I am sure put her a behind. As soon as we arrived we were given paperwork and rating scales to complete which was part of the evaluation process. My child felt very at ease sharing her problems with her and her staff. Dr. Sprecher handled the info shared with her in the most professional manner and did assure confidentially with my child. While i would like to have known what was said, I appreciate that my daughter was able to be open and honest and that the info stayed between them. I have the upmost faith with this provider. We received our report in a timely matter because there weren't any issues with billing which is often the case. I was very impressed.

I brought my child in to have testing and when we came back for the results we waited an hour before seeing Ms. Sprecher; when we did go back, I brought up the fact that I didn’t appreciate that we had to wait so long and no one even bothered to speak to us to apologize for the wait or notify us of when we would be seen. I understand that everyone runs behind but that happened both times we went. Timing is a real issue when you have other obligations. The biggest thing was when Sprecher told my child that I looked stressed and needed some fairy dust and that one time she (sprecher) had to wait for 4 hours for an appointment among other things that should not be discussed with a child at an appointment for them, not to mention told my child the trash she was talking “was between them”... very unprofessional.

Every time we have to use this office to complete a psychological we have to beg for the report to be given to us. They never answer their phone or provide the results back.

I was finally able to get an answer to my questions and help by son. Understanding what is going on is so important prior to trying meds. I highly recommend getting a psychological evaluation. Dr. Sprecher is brilliant. My insurance company denied part of the testing but she completed the testing she needed to do without getting paid. She will not put her name on anything if she cannot stand behind it.

Traveled 90 min one way to see this doctor. She helped me get my social security benefits with a detailed evaluation. Well worth the time invested.
