Dr spolter knows what he's doing. Knew my whole chart unlike the 10+ doctors I seen in the hospital and he listened to my words. This is a very good doctor. Only had one visit with him but I wasn't expecting him to know details like he did. I will definitely follow up with Dr. Spolter.

Excellent. All professional people involved in the appointment were simply awesome. My doctor K (short cannot spell) was very careful not to jump ahead and communicated tests I would need before my visit next week. She is working quickly as we know my walking could deteriorate quickly. I appreciate the thoroughness and at the same time as expeditious.

I hope doctor would be able to do my biopsy, unfortunately I have to drive toCC in Cleveland to get this one test. Unbelievable. Dr. Spoulter is supposed to be skilled in all areas. However, he said it was on his to do list. Hopefully, he will get whatever he needs to do this particular test; seeing that he said no one can perform it in Akron. I'm checking to see if what he said was true.
