Dr Spiguel is a consummate professional!

Dr. Spiegal is great, but he really needs another physician to assist as he tends to always be backlogged seeing patients.

The doctor was outstanding

March 24, 2023
My primary care physician (Dr. Andre Spiguel) has always shown great care and concern for my health. From day one in July 2017 until now in 2023, Dr. Andre Spiguel has been consistent in all forms of my overall care, from hospital care to surgery to CT Scans to X-rays, medications or any questions about my future care, Dr. Andre Spiguel has answers to my questions/concerns/needs and he also helps reduce my stress, worries, jitters and nervousness. His staff of Resident Doctors are always well trained and knowledgable. They know the right questions to ask. On this day of my appointment, my Resident doctor is Dr. Jaqui Kakalecki (she is a very good resident doctor) Thank you very much.

Felt comfortable

March 16, 2022
Dr. Spiguel has the best bedside manner I've encountered in some time. His calm, approachable demeanor was welcoming and exactly what we needed. He did an outstanding job explaining things to us along the way and ensured he took our perspective into consideration the whole time. He was thorough and kind. He took time to answer questions and helped us feel comfortable in what we were dealing with. Would recommend him to anyone in need of ortho oncology.
