12/03/14 5 5 5 5 Dr. Spiro is the best, hands down. I'd never go anywhere else if I ever choose to have more work. I traveled about two and a half hours to get to him and it couldn't have been more worth it. The way he and his staff treated me was enough, but everything in between made it enjoyable as well. I never thought I could look back at a surgery and be able to say it was fun, but it was. I could not be any happier with my experience, I never left any of my appointments without a smile on my face, and 4 months later, I'm still smiling at my results. My last post-op appointment was a few weeks ago, he told me my results are perfect and I'm actually ahead of schedule with the healing process. My scars are almost gone completely, too. I don't know how I could ever thank Dr. Spiro enough for the confidence he's given me with his talent. All I know is that for the first time in my life, I can't wait to put a bikini on this summer! All thanks to Dr. Spiro and his amazing team :)  Respond

14/12/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Spiro took very good care of me throughout the entire process from my first consultation, through surgery and post-operation. He has an excellent bedside manner and explains everything very clearly. He and his staff were always available to answer any questions or concerns I had. I am extremely happy with my results. Dr. Spiro gave me back my confidence and my results were above any expectations I had prior to meeting him and they are extremely natural. I am very grateful to have found Dr. Spiro. I have already recommended him and will continue to do so.  Respond

10/12/13 5 5 5 5 I cannot put into words how incredibly thankful I am for choosing Dr. Spiro! He was highly recommended to me by two of my girlfriends, but even then, I researched other Plastic Surgeons just to be 100% sure he was the right choice for me. The only thing I regret was the time I spent meeting other doctors. Right from the beginning, Dr. Spiro took his time to explain everything to me. Unlike so many other doctors who see you as just a number, Dr. Spiro sees you as his only patient. After having three children, I never thought I would see a flat belly again. Dr. Spiro made that dream come true for me. I am 3 weeks post op now and every time I look in the mirror, I’m like a child on Christmas morning! I love my new body and that’s because of my Santa Claus, Dr. Spiro! ;)  Respond

06/11/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Spiro is a truly a gifted surgeon! He helped me regain my pre pregnancy figure, which is something I never thought possible. In my initial consultation he spent over and hour with me, taking measurements and explaining all my options. I am a petite woman and had concerns about what my outcome would be. He took his time and patiently answered all of my questions. Dr. Spiro is extremely confident in his abilities and he made me feel so at ease that I instantly knew he was the surgeon for me. I scheduled my surgery that week and it was the best decision I have ever made. I am 5 weeks post op and I look and feel incredible. My recovery went smoothly. There were a few days of soreness and discomfort, but in the end I am so glad I made the decision to have surgery. Dr. Spiro employs an exceptional staff of nurses and office personnel that go above and beyond to address any concerns that a patient may have. I have already recommend Spiro Plastic Surgery and will continue to do so.  Respond

04/10/13 5 5 5 5 Dr . Spiro is an absolutely amazing surgeon. Trust me I did my research before choosing Dr. Spiro, for my breast augmentation. I had a few consultations with other doctors (some recommended to me by friends) and after each of the others I must confess that did not feel comfortable in their care; then I met Dr. Spiro and his staff. I remember leaving his office after the consultation feeling sure I was in good hands and making the right choice in a surgeon. If you have a challenging surgery (as I did); I would NEVER trust any other doctor. The medical staff at the facility was extremely attentive and trustworthy. I had a great experience from the moment I stepped into his office. Dr. Spiro is truly and artist!!

25/09/13 5 5 5 5 Look no further! Dr. Spiro and his staff are the best. They are professional, kind and understanding of your needs. I was very scared to have my breast augmentation and Dr. Spiro and his staff put my mind at ease and guided me through the entire process. Take a look at his website, his before and after photos are amazing. Pictures are worth a thousand words and his work in the photos speak for themselves. I am extremely happy with my natural results it is just what I wanted.  Respond

19/09/13 5 4 5 5 Dr.Spiro was recommended to me by my OBGYN. After 2 pregnancies, I was left with 2 hernias and "pseudo" pregnant belly. Dr.Spiro carefully explained everything in detail and the staff was helpful. I am so thankful to have been under his care. Now 4 months post surgery, the results have been amazing(better than my pre-baby body) and I'm more active and confident than before.

17/09/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Spiro is fantastic, honest and insightful as to what is best for each individual with years of success. His staff are all knowledgeable and helpful and the facilities he uses are the best with exceptional pre and post op experiences. I highly recommend him to any woman desiring to defy a little gravity and repair abdomens that child rearing has created grief.  See Responses

26/07/13 5 4 5 5 Dr. Spiro and his professional staff were exactly what I was looking for when I decided to have breast augmentation surgery. Every visit was a great experience. Dr. Spiro gave me all the time I needed in every appointment to answer questions and make me feel at ease. As a marathon runner and personal trainer, my build is more athletic and the size of my chest was lacking to say the least. Dr. Spiro gave me the exact look and feel of the breasts I have always dreamed of! His results are absolutely amazing and I would (and already have) recommended him to everyone I know. You MUST go see him. You will have incredible results and be treated like gold the entire process.  Respond

14/07/13 5 5 5 5 I had a breast reduction done 5 years ago with another doctor, and was very unhappy with the results. It took my 5 years to find the perfect surgeon to correct the mistakes of the previous operation, and I did not come to the decision of choosing Dr. Spiro for this task lightly. I did a lot of research and consulted with many doctors and knew that Dr. Spiro was the best. He is a skilled surgeon, explains things very clearly and most importantly, made me feel beautiful again after years of thinking I could never look the way I wanted. I feel sexy again and recommend him wholeheartedly to everybody now!  Respond

09/07/13 5 5 5 5 Very pleasant staff and so pleased with the results of my breast augmentation. I had a triangular shaped breasts naturally and was concerned the implant would not come out with a symmetrical and aesthetically appealing look. I was so happy after my surgery , Doctor Spiro is not only personable and professional, his work is off the charts. I would highly recommend him!  Respond

25/06/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Spiro came HIGHLY recommended to me as the top choice to perform reconstruction following a unilateral mastectomy. His skill & consideration of my circumstances were exceptional, & his excellent & caring follow-up exceeded my expectations. I am forever grateful for his outstanding care & artistry on my lat-flap procedure. Subsequently, I also had Dr. Spiro perform an in-office nasal-labial injection to soften the look of those folds. I was quite nervous about this (more so than my reconstruction to be truthful) b/c though I desired to look "fresher" I was concerned about looking over-filled & "done." I needed not worry however; The results were subtly & lovely, & in my particular case lasted well over a year. I would also like to add that Dr. Spiro's entire team & office staff are truly exceptional. This of course is a huge factor when dealing with the overwhelming logistics of paperwork, insurance matters & scheduling that accompany a breast cancer diagnosis and reconstruction.

25/03/13 5 5 5 5 Dr. Spiro explained fully the procedures he would be doing for breast reconstruction, following my surgery for cancer. He was pleasant and spent plenty of time with me and answered all my questions. His nurse Mary Beth is also great for returning calls, and the office staff - wonderful manner. All were helpful to reassure me, and make a very trying time much more pleasant. Would recommend to anyone needing breast surgery, whether after cancer or augementation/reduction.

29/03/12 5 5 5 5 At age 17 God gave me a beautiful body and now at the age 53 thanks to Dr. Spiro I have a beautiful body once again. 7 years ago I had a breast reduction and tummy tuck to help prevent arthritis back pain. The doctor who preformed the surgery did a horrible job. I felt nothing less then mutilated, and my self esteem was shot. No matter how hard I dieted and worked out at the gym my figure was a nightmare. After discovering Dr. Spiro and seeing what an amazing doctor he is and seeing the miraculous surgeries he had performed, I chose to have him perform a new breast surgery correcting everything that was wrong from my previous surgery. He removed my scars and gave me beautiful even breasts by implants and a lift. He also he performed a un believable tummy tuck and body sculpting. I don't know how I could ever thank Dr. Spiro for the wonderful new level of self esteem and happiness I now have and adore everyday of my life. My endless thanks to Dr. Spiro! - Joann Moran  Respond

18/01/12 5 4 5 5 Dr. Spiro has highly recommended to me by another surgeon when I was diagnosed with cancer five years ago. Dr. Spiro reconstructed my entire left breast through a tram flap procedure. As painfully difficult as it is to be diagnosed and treated for breast cancer, I have truly been blessed to have my body restored in such a way that I feel I truly treated cancer. Cancer took a lot away but in the end it gave me so much more. Dr. Spiro is an incredibly talented surgeon who is also a man of integrity and compassion. I would highly recommend Dr. Spiro to anyone who is searching for a perfectionist in the field of platic surgery.  Respond

08/01/12 5 5 5 5 After being told by the Chief of Plastic Surgery at another hospital that I would never be symmetrical I almost found it hard to believe Dr. Spiro when he confidently told me the steps required to make me whole again. I feel blessed to have found Dr. Spiro. His skill and talent are beyond words. He and his entire staff are wonderful. Dr. Spiro not only gave me outstanding results, but gave back the sense of normalcy that cancer tried to take away.

16/04/09 5 5 5 5 Dr Spiro is a genius who did breast reconstruction after double mastectomy. My other Doctors have been amazed at the wonderful job that he has performed. The mastery of his surgery is truly remarkable. I have tremendous respect for him. There have been other patients that I have become friends with that share my outcome. Either as a reconstruction or a cosmetic reason this is the Doctor to see. I cannot laud him enough for my experience that has helped my recovery. My mother had beast cancer also and was disfigured for the rest of her life. Dr Spiro has spared me from the disfigurement that I was so glad to avoid.

10/03/09 5 5 5 5 I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Spiro AND his office staff. He is an incredible surgeon! I had 2 hernias repaired as well as abdominoplasty at the same time... 6 months after the birth of my twins. I saw Dr. Spiro numerous times after surgery for follow-ups and was always treated in a very professional manner by his staff. They were always helpful on the telephone as well. It is now 18 months since my surgery and I look and feel incredible. I (sadly) had my last visit today. Anything I decide to do to my body in the future will be by this doctor. THE BEST!!!

25/08/08 1 1 2 4 This is a good surgeon, however, he doesn't care about you at all after the surgery. His medical assistant doesn't have experience and not nice with patient, morover, she doesn't report to the doctor about the patient's problems. This person can't work with sick people and their problems after surgery, she is not qualifies for it. Everything what she does makes patient feel worst. I never would recommend this office to anybody.  Respond

27/11/07 1 1 1 3 When I first visited Dr. Spiro, he came across as very attentive and informative. After my surgery however,and 3 post op visits later, while never requesting any follow up tests to see where my problem was coming from, he informed me he could not help me. Poor attitude from staff members as well, when I requested information for another physician who is operating to correct damage from my previous surgery. Would not recommend this Dr. to anyone.  See Responses
