As a physician specially trained in emergency medicine, Michael Spigner, MD leads a team of expert health care clinicians who treat people with illnesses or injuries that could be life-threatening or pose an immediate risk to their health and well-being.

Whether it is a life-threatening event, such as a heart attack, or a condition needing rapid treatment, such as pneumonia, Dr. Spigner attentively and compassionately listens to all patients to understand their health care needs and provide the most advanced medical care available.
A former firefighter and emergency medical technician, Dr. Spigner has strong clinical and research interests in strengthening continuity of emergency-related medical care, including EMS personnel, air and ground transport physicians and nurses, and emergency department clinicians.
