What People Say About Dr. John Sperling, MD
Reply
Dr.Sperling performed surgery on December 20 2018 on my right shoulder after I had torn my rotator cuff. He explained the surgery procedure in detail and answered all my questions concerning the surgery and the recovery process. Spent 1 day at Methodist hospital and was released the next morning. The whole process was a good experience. Dr. Sleeping an SD his staff were great as was the staff at Methodist hospital. I highly recommend Dr. Spelling. He is out NB e of the best shoulder surgerons in the country.

I chose Dr. Spelling following a fairly comprehensive on-line search for the best shoulder replacement surgeon I could find. I traveled half way across the country to meet with him. He delivered everything he promised. If you are looking for "Dr. Warm and Fuzzy" ....he's not your doctor. If you want the best shoulder replacement surgeon in the country.....he's your guy.
