Dr. Spalding has been the first physician to sit down, listen to me, examine and discuss treatment options. I've been through so many specialists and he was the first to actually help me. His staff was polite and helpful via scheduling. His NP was very nice. Dr. Spalding was recommended to me by a coworker and I will continue to use him as my rheumatologist.
