    He is rude and does not actually care about patients. He is hammer looking for a nail and that is all he cares about. He treats you as if you're an idiot and that you are looking for drugs.

    DR. SPERO HAS AN AWFUL PERSONALITY. HE WAS FINE AT FIRST BUT QUICKLY CHANGED HIS TUNE WHEN HE IS NOT CORRECT. WHEN HE IS NOT CORRECT, HE WILL NOT ADMIT IT.HE DID A REALLY BAD LUMBAR FUSION WITH OUTDATED HARDWARE. MY NEW SURGEON HAD TO CONTACT THE HARDWARE COMPANY FOR TOOLS IN ORDER TO TAKE THE HARDWARE OUT. STAY FAR AWAY IF YOU WANT QUALITY! ALSO IF YOU HAVE ANY ISSUE METABOLIZING MEDICATIONS HE IS QUICK TO ACCUSE YOU OF DRUG SEEKING RATHER THAN FINDING OUT IF THERE IS AN ISSUE METABOLIZING MED
