    How was your appointment with Dr. Shpiner?

    Sep 12, 2017
    This was my second visit to Dr. Shpiner. My first was when I was diagnosed with Stage IV lung cancer two years ago. This visit was because I thought I had sleep apnea. Dr. Shpiner took the time to read all my recent medical reports I brought with me and review my medications. He then made adjustments in the medications and said I don't have sleep apnea. My 'symptoms' were cleared up with the medication changes/adjustments. Wow! I feel great.
