Review for Dr. Speights

Dr Ethridge is an exceptional doctor. I live in Georgia, but continue to use MS Sports Medicine because of my past experience with the Orthopedic physicians there.

Review for Dr. Ethridge

I had ACDF neck surgery for numbness & pain in my neck & shoulders. Dr Calvert was excellent in explaining the surgery and I’m so thankful I had it. I am now pain free and owe it all to Dr Calvert and his wonderful team.
