Spectrum Health Services is where I go for my medical care. This office is much more than a clinic they are all inclusive. They have helped me with my personal affairs as well. Walking into the doors of this facility is like walking into the home of a family member. The staff is caring, nurturing and they understand what iam dealing with. they look to be moving into a new building. Therefore I am sure they could use any support they can get. The things they do, benefit the community. Every year they have one of the largest, most informative and entertaining haleth fairs. This year I went and was able to get my children dental exams and they learned what to do in case of a fire. Overall, the family had a blast and we ended up staying for hours. This group deserves it.
