I scheduled my appointment online. There was no personal connection whatsoever, ie., no phone call. I wanted an appointment with a doctor instead of a PA. I have nothing against the PA, it's just that other medical practices cannot link results with a PA. It took me over an hour to book an appointment with Dr. Spatola. I am very computer savvy, but I had to try several different options to schedule an appointment with Dr. Spatola.

Dr. Spatola remembered me after 6 years that I had been away, is caring/compassionate, understanding, personable, knowledgeable, professional, takes time so you don't feel rushed, was on schedule so I didn't have to wait, explains things expertly, is genuine, follows through (completed my paperwork in a timely fashion), and is just overall awesome as a physician!

Dr.Spatola is a great physician, patient, kind and a great personality. Leaves the patient feeling heard and seems to genuinely care about helping. If I had to make a suggestion or critique, it would be, that the nurses doing all the pre screening, to have a bit more enthusiasm and warmth towards the patient. It doesn't have to be DisneyWorld but a "Hey, how are you? thank you for coming in today and when we leave maybe a "Have a nice day" it's small, but it's better than a cold shoulder and a "the doctor will be right in" with your back towards the patient as the door is closing behind them. I know that after doing hundreds of patients per month, it's easy to be desensitized but for some people (like myself) it's our first time. First impressions always matter. That's just my take on it, I'll be back regardless because of Dr.Spatola. Thank you for you time and reading this. I hope it helps.
