I was referred to Dr.Sperling from my sister's friend who is eplileptic and was seizure free for years because of Dr.Sperling. She said he is world known, he has patients from India travel to him and he specalizes in epilepsy. As a fellow epileptic it was comforting to hear he had such good reviews. I have been seeing him for 2 years now. He properly diagnosed me when other doctors just guessed and over dosed me (his words) with medicine that hurt me more than helped me.
