My wife and I moved to Seattle a few years ago. We had three children and a fourth on the way. One of our children has a very serious birth defect. We were referred to Children's Hospital for care. Upon asking which pediatrician would be best for our children - especially our youngest- Dr. Spector's name was suggested by every doctor we talked to. As he was only taking newborns at the time, a few of the doctors at Childrens did some arm twisting and got us into his office.
He is fabulous!. He arranged our first visit at the end of the day so he could spend the appropriate time with our son and our special needs. That visit was over 3 hours long! The care he has provided has made an incredible impact on all of us. He starts hospital rounds at about 6 AM and I have been told that he rarely leaves the office until 9PM. He returns all calls each day. His covering doctors are excellent as well.
He is a character. He used to do standup comedy and irreverent humor and his blue jeans are a trademark. He says "life is far too important to take too seriously".
I have been told that if he does get serious, get worried; there is something really wrong with the child. My children love him and look forward to their visits.
P.S. if you are an intensely politically correct person, he is not for you. (This year for Halloween, he was the tooth fairy>)
