Dr. Spector is a very dedicated person to his profession. My husband did have a problem when he contacted the office because his big toe had swelled up. He was told by the receptionist to go to [...] as they couldn't give him an appointment. He called back because the problem reoccurred within 2 weeks and they never responded for over three days. Dr. Spector told us when we explained this to him on our visit [...] to never accept that from a receptionist. He said we must insist that they put us through to him. He said he would never tell a patient to go somewhere else as that is why he is here to take care of his patients.

Dr. Spector is one of those old-school doctors that are hard to find these days. He takes the time to explain how diseases and the body works in laymen's terms and you never feel rushed or like you are taking up too much of his time with silly questions.

I left another hospital to continue my care with Dr. Spector at Temple. He treats his patients with great care and I did not find that with the physician that had replaced him at his last facility.
