My approach is holis­tic, inclu­sive and non-judg­men­tal where every­one has a voice in their recov­ery and con­ti­nu­ity of care. The patient and fam­i­ly are a inte­gral part in the path of recovery.

"I was very impressed that Dr. Spishakoff had read my file before I arrived. I have had drs in the past that didn't even look at my file before my 1st visit. He is easy to talk to, and he knows what questions to ask."
