*Dr. Spindel listens well, and warmly. His concern for his patients is excellent. He makes sure you understand in a kindly manner. This was a joint appointment along with the liver specialist, *Dr. [name]. Very well done, by both doctors.

*Dr. Spindel is a great MD to work with. The need for his care was initially alarming which caused me anxiety & worry. But he explained everything so calmly & so well that I was put to ease. I really appreciate him, his care, & his staff. Everyone is extremely nice, patient, & willing to answer questions.

Extremely good experience. *Dr. Spindel even made time to see me for a related matter just after I left this appointment. This was greatly appreciated and allowed me to deal with the issue the same day.

*Dr. Spindel was very attentive and most impressed was that he himself wrapped my wound rather than putting it off to a nurse. That showed the care he as as well as a humility not often seen in drs. as well-qualified as he.

This appointment was a followup scheduled while in the hospital. I found Dr Spindel to be very pleasant and quite informative. He was very thorough in his assessment of my condition and provided a great deal of information regarding treatment and prognosis.

I chose Infectious Disease as a specialty because I enjoyed the detective work that goes into taking care of patients with complicated problems. I have been in practice since 1995 and came to Kaiser Permanente Northwest after having been in private practice in Portland for almost five years.

About my practice

Our Department of Infectious Disease cares for hospital patients in the Portland metropolitan area. In Portland, we staff clinics on both sides of town and we also travel to Salem to see clinic patients. We use evidence-based medicine to provide the best practices for antibiotic and vaccination policies at Kaiser Permanente. We collaborate with the Department of Gastroenterology for the care of our chronic Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C patients. Some of our doctors work in the Immune Deficiency Clinic, while others provide oversight for our Travel Clinic. It gives us the opportunity to provide care for a diverse variety of patients and illnesses.

How I thrive

My hobbies revolve around spending time with my family. We enjoy camping, hiking, geocaching, and taking the occasional RV trip in our 1988 Minnie Winnie (the engine has only caught fire once). I attend campouts with my son's Boy Scout troop and activities with my daughter in Girl Scouts. We also get out and root for the Timbers, Blazers, and once or twice a year attend a Mariners or Seahawks game. We've always had Shelties and our current two are named Monte and Moira.
