How was your experience with the doctor?It’s great being a part of the Mount Sinai system because they reference other providers in the system’s notes. I didn’t have to put a ton of effort in to bring him up to date and he was very clear about my options. Hopeful about resolving plantar fasciitis with his help.

How was your experience with the doctor?This was my 3rd treatment on my Baker’s cyst with Dr. Spinner and each time he’s been speedy and attentive given that I tend to be a bit high maintenance.

How was your experience with the doctor?I’m SO happy I found Dr Spinner. I’ve suffered with chronic pain for many many years and have been dismissed by a lot of doctors. He helped me diagnose where my pain is coming from and I couldn’t be happier. Barely any wait and the office staff is super friendly too :)

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Spinner was very easy to speak to and very pleasant. He was also quite knowledgeable and clear in presenting his diagnosis. I suffer from a very rare congenital disorder and Dr. Spinner is one of the very few doctors that I have met that has even known patients with this condition. It has been such a relief to know that I now have an informed resource to turn to when an unusual medical problem occurs that would be difficult to diagnose and resolve with most doctors. I would highly recommend Dr. Springer!

How was your experience with the doctor?Came with back pain (severe muscle spasm, happened twice in the same spot). He checked a couple of things, laughed, and said that I'll get better. Sent me home in 5 mins after 55 mins of the wait. Maybe he's good with "pain management" of old people, but not good for people who are active in sports.

How was your experience with the doctor?Waited over 1.5 hrs to see Dr. Spinner. Everything was fine after that though I am unclear how feedback from the x-rays will be communicated, he mentioned I can call the office to set up a time to talk on the phone. He used some hand-wavy idioms like "you're exposed to more radiation walking on to an airplane than taking 8+ x-rays of your spine" and "an MRI is just a picture, it doesn't really tell us that much."

How was your experience with the doctor?A modern office and friendly staff welcomed me on my first visit to Dr. Spinner's office. All referrals and records were electronic, so there was no need to spend too much time on paperwork. From the recptionist to the Physician's Assistant everyone was friendly and helpful. Dr. Spinner was also friendly and knowledgable, and immediately put me at ease by answering all of my questions and giving me hope that further testing could help us get to an accurate diagnosis and treatment of my issue. Thanks!

How was your experience with the doctor?The info on Zocdoc doesn't transfer to their system so you'll need to sit and waste your time filling out paper work when you arrive (despite someone confirming over the phone that I would not have to fill out any other paperwork).

How was your experience with the doctor?He was great. We will see how long it takes to get a follow-up with the recommended treatment. Oddly, I filled out paperwork on here, was told the office doesn't sync with ZocDoc. ZocDoc called me after I got a text from them and told me they SHOULD have the paperwork. The initial woman who created me and gave me pages to fill out, was ok. When I walked up to turn in the forms, some other woman said I had to give the forms to the woman who gave them to me - where ever she was! So, I waited and then asked her again... Finally, another woman took them. Just so so. But he seems great.
