Summary: Excellent MD and Staff
March 8th, 2017
I have been seing Dr. Spektor for more years than I care to admit and in all of those years his professionalism and care has always been above the rest. He also has a good sense of humor which helps when one is anxious.
My husband had cataract surgery at Bascon Palmer and he had some issues and difficulties so I was more than hesitant when my turn came up. I finally relented and just had cataract surgery with of course, Dr. Spektor. The results have been amazing! He was reassuring, punctual and along with his entire staff provided personal and astounding results. I CAN SEE, 20/15 not even 24 hours after my second eye surgery. The whole process with his staff starting with Christina and Maria who answered my every silly question was a pleasure.
I recommend him without any reservations. To me he is the very BEST!!!
Thank you Dr. Spektor.
