I was seeing Dr. Spedale before he decided to work with MDVIP. I would like for him to know he is a very good doctor and has a personal touch to his practice. He has two associates in Kimberly and Hannah that show concern for his patients and are very helpful whether it is on a phone call or through email.
Thanks to all of you.
