I think Dr. Spellman is wonderful. He has taken care of my husband's glaucoma for many years and then did his cataract surgery when my husband was ready. He is meticulous and thorough in everything he does. He is also very kind. So naturally when my cataracts were ready I had Dr. Spellman do the surgery and everything went great. I have perfect vision now and the surgery was easy!

I highly recommend Dr. Spellman. He was recommended to me by several friends who had cataract surgery with him and were very happy with the results. He did my cataract surgery and everything is outstanding. It was a breeze. What I appreciate about him the most is that he takes the time to carefully explain everything. Very nice guy. His staff are charming as well.

Had cataract surgery. First eye was great. Didn't want second eye done because i felt great and could see great. Dr. Spellman hounded me and hounded me and insisted I needed to do the second eye. I have been in pain and miserable with constant watery, aching blurry eye!! I didn't want the second surgery!!! He would not let me wait! I could READ! I was comfortable!! I was happy! Now I am miserable and in pain everday!!! I can't even enjoy reading to my grandchildren.....
