This review is based upon nine years of care by Dr. Speck. I'm one of those patients who asks many questions. I want to learn about the "why" behind the recommendations. Dr. Speck unfailingly met all my medical needs including my curiosity. She is not simply a superb practitioner. She has created a new form of healthcare that integrates your diet, exercise and self care issues into her practice. Very few cardiologists do this and fewer still do it with her skill and the skill of her very capable staff. I think she is quietly setting a standard for what heart care should be. I feel very lucky to be her patient. John Kydd

Dr Speck, and her staff, Maureen and Kathleen are awesome! Very attentive, attention to detail, and welcoming. Dr Speck is an attentive listener, and gives thoughtful suggestions based upon the specific needs of the patient. You have Dr Speck's undivided attention when speaking with her, which is becoming a rarity in medical practices. I am an active and fit guy in my late 60's, and saw Dr Speck initially for some cardiac concerns. A careful workup was done, including an in office VO2 max exam, and extensive bloodwork. She made helpful recommendations based upon this data, tailored to my individual needs. She also had excellent referrals for some troublesome joint issues, which are now much improved. I would heartily recommend, without reservation, Dr Speck and her outstanding staff.

Dr. Speck is a very experienced & knowledgeable doc with specialties in cardiology & internal medicine. Her advise is caring and practical. I have had a lot going on in my life & forgot to fast for my blood draw. She was able to determine that the results were still well within any guidelines for concern by mentally extrapolating the data. Her location in Ballard isn't as convenient for me, but I find the extra driving is actually worth my while, because of the exceptional care!

Dr. Speck does this work because she is passionate, she does NOT put insurance first but her patients are #1! She has run a battery of tests on me, listened to my every concern, promoted cardiac rehabilitation in a supported environment. What I like most, is I truly believe everything she is doing is to prevent further damage BEFORE health worsens and that is very rare these days! In my experience, Speck Health PUTS PATIENTS 1st! Thank you for practicing care, concern, professionalism and equity in your medical practice as an African American female, I have felt your sincerity and appreciate your expert support.

I had very nuanced questions and concerns about improving my "healthspan" and Dr. Speck not only listened carefully, but was on the same page regarding what we could do to achieve my health goals.

Dr. Speck is the very knowledgeable on heart health and life style factors that go along with living an active and healthy life. I am very happy I found her three years ago. She has rounded up my cholesterol numbers and driven down the undesirable ones. As a seventy-two year old man I could not be happier with my health. Thank you Dr. Speck, Mark Weller

Dr. Speck, Thank you for being so thorough, excellent at listening to each concern and responding with clear explanations of your thinking about each of my questions. I felt you took my health as seriously as I do, and looked for evidence with a comprehensive evaluation. I went to you with a history of various diagnoses, guesses, symptoms, worries, confusion and uncertainty about my heart. You explored and discussed each of them. I left with a clear understanding and confidence in your findings, and a great perspective of my heart health. That has resolved my long- standing anxiety about it, which I’m sure is good for my heart and mind! Thank you. Ann Douvier
