Dr. Spiess is very good at what he does and I consider myself very fortunate to be in his care for my injury

July 24, 2018

Despite a full schedule, Dr. Spiess/his staff agreed to see me on short notice, when the UPMC Presbyterian ER surgeon who closed my wound said that I needed to see a hand surgeon within 5 days.

July 20, 2018

Appointment for 9:15...didn't see doctor until 10:30.
