AnonymousDr. Spina has been extremely helpful in terms of both our initial meeting and ongoing support. He makes himself available through email/text and encourages you to reach out with any questions. He genuinely cares about your improvement and takes the time to make sure any worries are addressed.
- Emme VI initially reached out to Dr. Spina because I was completely overwhelmed and out of ideas to help myself. Since then, I've been very happy with my progress - I feel like a fog has lifted: I'm less depressed, taking better care of myself, have more control, and tools I can turn to to lower anxiety. Compared to others I've seen in the past, I'd say he listens more carefully and is more open. His approach has put me at ease, which has helped me better explain myself, even though that can generally be difficult for me. There has never been any pressure to take medication - it's always an informational discussion about the possibilities and their pros and cons. In fact, there's a specific medication I took in the past that I don't want to take again, and he completely respects that choice and encourages me to make such decisions for myself. It's clear that he wants to help and he has been available by phone, email, and text between in-person appointments. Highly recommended.
- Elyse KI really cannot say enough positive things about Dr. Spina. Before I began attending his practice I was having difficulty completing simple tasks and felt buried beneath my mental health. He is a very communicative provider who can be reached via email and text outside of regular appointments, and is very open and honest about treatment options and plans of action. Dr. Spina truly cares for his patients and their wellbeing by providing a stable and informative environment while allowing patients to be in control of their treatments and appointments. I do not agree with previous comments about him being a 'pill-pusher,' rather he pushes patients to discover and work towards finding a balance that works for their lives and mental health. I have never once felt pressured to try a medication or treatment that I was not comfortable with. Dr. Spina listens and provides guidance and insight feedback that has greatly improved my overall wellbeing.
