Karl Spector, MDInternal Medicine
“We accept patients 18 and older for almost all medical problems, but we specialize in drug addiction, nutrition advice, and smoking cessation. I realize it sounds “hokey” but our mission is to treat each patient as if they are a family member–with respect, dignity, and empathy. We only prescribe the medications, order the tests and refer to those chosen specialists that we would allow our own family members to take, do or visit. If it’s not good enough for our family, it’s not good enough for yours!”
