Are you unsure of how much your practice will grow in the upcoming months/years and wondering whether or not Spruce will be able to accommodate the changing needs of your growing practice? Again, I have only one piece of advice: get Spruce NOW!
As a private practice psychologist who is currently growing his practice at a rapid rate, I too had all of these concerns/questions… But with in the first half hour of my initial consultation with the amazing members of the Spruce team, my concerns vanished! And now, less than one week in, all of my phone/fax numbers have been successfully ported, my questions promptly answered, and my Spruce system in perfect working order! I could not be happier, my clients could not be happier, and I simply could not give Spruce a higher endorsement!

Trust me, you will thank yourself almost immediately!!!
I Highly Recommend Spruce
I recently switched my private counseling practice over to Spruce and my only regret is n not having done it sooner. I love being able to send and receive faxes in my phone. Having a secure phone “line” that uses my existing phone is wonderful. I can tag clients so I can do searches for people with similar issues and email them information that might be relevant to them. I can “page“ myself to remind me to do a client related task or follow up with them. (It’s kind of like the marking.) I can get off of the phone with a client and immediately write a note to document the call. I can do video sessions. I’m looking forward to improvements such as clients being able to access from their PC (right now they have to use a smart phone) and better reporting so that I can more easily send out the client records when requested. But they’re a great service for a great price. My anxiety level has literally gone down because of the seamlessness of this service. Thank you Spruce!

Nice Features with Some Room for Improvement
I started out using both Spruce and Doxy, and now use almost exclusively Spruce. Doxy just wasn’t clear enough. This is highly functional, and has many nice communications features such as messaging between appointments and the ability to send documents.
I would like to see additional features added.
One limitation is the lack of the ability to add a third party to your call, which limits ability to utilize translation services. Maybe there is a way to use it that I cannot think of but...well I haven’t figured it out. Also, I wish I could figure out how to integrate some forms into the communications. I am sure that I could, but the Spruce education is not as user friendly as I’d like. Also, I wish that I could line up my appointments, as I do on my colander. Again, maybe there is a way to do that, but I haven’t figured it out.

Hi there, thank you very much for your review and for your detailed feedback. We are happy that most of Spruce's features are working well for you, and we appreciate your improvement requests, which we will be sure to pass along to our product team for consideration. Adding multiple-user-videos and calendars are great areas for improvement. As for your intake form questions, many Spruce users choose to send their intake forms via a PDF attachment in a secure conversation, or to use some of the pre-made forms available as part of your Spruce Visit library.
