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!

as a health professional myself, I want to applaud Dr Speiss and his staff for service excellence well beyond the expected. I felt confident in my in office care as well as my disposition care. I would refer Dr Speiss over and over again.

Very positive experience!

November 06, 2015

Dr Spiess is one of the best doctors I have ever seen, very knowledgeable on the subject matter of my concerns. I have seen many doctors in the past years for the problem I am having and he was the only one that cared enough to dig into it. All the other doctors I have seen have been bad.

Doctor Spiess was friendly, courteous, competent and Professional
