I had been going to him for 15 years before I moved to Florida. He is amazing! Skilled physician with superb assessment skills and a warm and comforting bedside manner. You may have to wait for him but that’s because he gives everyone the time they need. I wish he would move to Florida!!

Dr spelling was knowlegable but the office billing is horrible. They requestwd paument up front then never contact me that my account was over paid. they were rude and stated they could hold my Payment for 30 days which is what they did. Meanwhile I owed the money to the doctor and got bills from his office. The worst is to miss manage other people's money
