After having started coming to your office once I got pregnant, I had to see all the doctors there, which is your protocol. I gave birth on a day Dr Spires wasnt there and was very disappointed. The only reason I have stayed at your office is because of him. Honestly I will probably not be staying at your office because you cannot promise me I will have him to give birth again. He is the best you have and if he were to ever leave, I would most definitely follow.

Dr. Spires is a riot and a class act, as well as a great doctor. He inspires confidence in his patients and listens to them and offers relevant suggestions and anecdotal evidence to help them make a better decision. He delivered one of our best friends' babies and we have full confidence in his skills as a care providor.

Dr.Spires is the best doctor. I have had such a positive experience pregnant and delivering my daughter with him. He listens to concerns, provides positive solutions, peace of mind and has a warm and caring approach. Dr. Spires always made me feel confident about decisions concerning my pregnancy and birth plan. That was very important to me having conceived through IVF and having had a previous loss. I am so grateful to have him as my physician and love that he was able to deliver our beautiful daughter via c-section.

Dr. Spires is not my regular physician. He was very pleasant and thorough. He took the time to review my history being that he wasn't my normal physician. Made very good recommendations for future treatments. I was so pleased leaving the office. He is also the first male OB I've ever seen.

Dr. Spires is AMAZING! This was my 4th c-section (1-3 we're from different doctors in various states). I had complications with C-section #3 so I anticipated some complications with #4. To my delight, C-section #4 went without a hitch. Dr. Spires great surgical skill, for certain, aided in my speedy recovery. Dr. Spires is pleasantly professional and equally personable. He showed concern for my concerns and had solutions to everything. I healed beautifully and had minimal bleeding post surgery. Thank you, Dr. Spires, for putting my and my family's worries at ease. I wish the world had more doctors like you. Riverside is lucky to have you!
