I enjoy the time I spend with my patients. I love learning about their families, their travels and their ideas. And I have always felt honored to be able to help them live healthier, more fulfilling lives. At Bryn Mawr Personal Healthcare, this is my highest priority.
After graduating from Brown University with a bachelor’s degree in Human Biology, Dr. Spitzer attended Louisiana State University Medical School in New Orleans. He then moved to Boston for his internship and residency in Internal Medicine at the New England Deaconess Hospital, a Harvard Medical School teaching facility. He remained at the Deaconess Hospital for an additional two years to complete a fellowship in Infectious Disease and subsequently joined the staff at the Lahey Clinic Medical Center, practicing both Internal Medicine and Infectious Disease.
By that time, Dr. Spitzer had a young family and he decided to make the move to Philadelphia to be closer to his extended family. After considering a number of opportunities, he opened a practice in Bryn Mawr specializing in Internal Medicine and Infectious Disease. At the time, he was new to suburban Philadelphia and was not sure that this fledgling practice would take off. Thankfully, through hard work and his ability to connect with patients, he was busier than ever.
While his primary interest has always been patient care, Dr. Spitzer wanted to be able to spend more time with individual patients. He never wanted to be one of those physicians with their hand on the door, rushing to move on to the next patient. His strong suit has always been his ability to truly listen to his patients’ medical histories and concerns, in order to properly diagnose and treat their illnesses, whether simple or complex. In 2004, in an effort to provide the highest quality of care to his patients, Dr. Spitzer opened Bryn Mawr Personal Healthcare as a way to deliver the superior level of care that his patients deserve.
