This Dr. I have the utmost respect for! His expertise is second to none, Dr. Spiess was very thorough and to the point. He explained that my first surgery went well and explained my upcoming surgery as well. Just a nice man and very polite to my wife who was in attendance. He answered all of our questions and concerns.

Everyone in this office was so nice. It made breaking my hand less awful. I'm actually kind of sad now that I'm almost healed and won't be seeing them anymore.

Dr Speiss is the excellent example of a doctor any body who want working on them in regards to their health.

Dr. Spiess is an excellent physician. He took the time to LISTEN to me when it seems no other Doctor actually listened to what my main complaint was. I have seen many many doctors for 2 1/2 years and no one could figure out my nerve problem. Dr. Spiess examined me just one time and felt confident of my diagnosis and wanted to help me ASAP with a very complex surgery. I can't say enough how kind and compassionate he has been to myself and family. He was with me every minute of my surgery and stayed with me in the recovery room to ensure my safety. He explained everything to myself and family in a very professional, simplistic way so we could all understand. Dr. Spiess even took the time out of his busy schedule to call my father, who is also a physician, and further explain the surgery to him prior to my surgery. I really can't say enough kind things about Dr. Spiess. UPMC is VERY VERY LUCKY to have a surgeon of this caliber on their side!
