What other people have to say:
Patient, caring doctor
Dr. Spiegel is unique - he spent a great deal of time with me to look at everything going on and how it is interrelated and connected. Very different from my experience with other doctors who are in and out in 10 minutes and only treat the symptom rather than the source of the problem.
My back thanks to him
I have come several times to Dr. Spiegel with so much pain. Several times without almost been carried. He always make it much better and I walk out of the office. Also he has never refused to take me in and always make time. Which I appreciate with my crazy schedule.
The most helpful care I have ever received
After three years of finding no relief for shoulder and hip pain, I came to see Dr. Spiegel. His intake consultation was extensive and holistic. Dr. Spiegel's hands on muscular manipulations have made a huge difference in helping to alleviate the pain and enabling me to sleep. I would highly recommend Dr. Spiegel to anyone. He listens, provides clear explanations, spends quality time with his patients and his diagnosis and hands on skills are superb.
My favorite physician
Dr. Spiegel has enabled me to manage my chronic pain and other musculoskeletal issues for over a decade, and has been able to mitigate severe episodes most of the time. His manner is warm and engaging, giving the level of detail desired by the patient (I ask a lot of questions) without being condescending or dismissive. He treats the patient as a partner in resolving one's issues, and genuinely cares about each person and his/her ailments. Dr. S stays on top of current knowledge and treatments, and is open to non-allopathic remedies while maintaining healthy skepticism about unproven/unstudied claims. His staff is friendly, competent, and efficient, which is not always the case in medical practices. I'm not generally effusive or uncritical, but I can't say enough positive things about Dr. Spiegel!
