Emily was very good, however, I never should have seen her in the first place . . . I had asked for a gynecological referral and was assigned to her - this was an unnecessary and inefficient step as I went through the same exam the next day with the NP on the gynecological team. $$ and time wasted for everyone . . .

Dr. Speca is incredibly considerate & thorough! I feel very comfortable talking to her and describing my experiences.

I was completely satisfied w/the expertise and professionalism demonstrated by *Emily Speca. She confirmed my suspicions about having a inguinal hernia and provided me with information on care for the hernia along with contact information for follow-up consultation w/VM surgeons.
  Overall Patient Rating - March 2019
I was provided very helpful print information that explained the likely source of GI distress for which I sought assistance. That information, the time the provider devoted to the appointment, and the friendliness and caring that the provider projected were all greatly appreciated.

ARNP Speca, Emily is very thorough and has an excellent bedside manor. I would highly recommend her.
  Overall Patient Rating - February 2019
I did not feel rushed or judged. Most everything was clearly explained. She has a comforting demeanor. Lab results were sent quickly.
