I used Dr Sperling for my stapendectomy surgery in July 2017. He took time to explain the procedure and answer all my follow up questions. He also personally called the day after the surgery. I'm thrilled with outcome; life changing! The office staff was also kind and professional.

Dr. Sperling restored my hearing! He wrote the textbook on Stapedectomy surgery for otosclerosis. Other top specialists (in Boston & NYC) sd they didn't think they could and left me in tears re potential side effects. I had lost most of the hearing in my left ear due to otosclerosis (build up of calcium on stapes bone). I'm a college professor in RI and had a hard time hearing students in the back of the room or comments from colleagues in meetings. Wish I had not wasted time w other docs!

If I could give this D bag negative stars I would. Terrible bedside manner, had no answers at all for my reactive tinnitus and hyperacusis and I doubt he even understood what I was telling him. I guess if you have an ear infection, he may be helpful because he could write you a prescription. Not only that, he's just a grade A bung hole on top of his incompetence. Hopefully this review helps someone stay away from this clown and actually find a knowledgable and caring Doctor instead.

An amazing Dr that you should not hesitate to have any procedure performed by him....he gave me hearing back and I can't be any happier. He has amazing bedside manner and takes the time to answer any questions or concerns....Look no further...He is your Dr!!!

I have beem a patient of Dr Sperling for several years he is the best best your doctor you can have a fine I live in Brooklyn and it was well worth paying a toll over the bridge to see him in Staten Island I had a clogged ear with water and he removed it and also remove the wax from both ears as it feels good to be able to hear again

I would not recommend Dr. Sperling on the basis of the staff experience I had. I attempted to see him with an elderly client. We were given the West Side address. When we arrived, his staff said we were supposed to go to the East Side. As my client is very old, I explained that I could not take her across town and requested to be seen by another doctor in the office. Over 2 hours later, we were still waiting. No one had even done a preliminary assessment of her needs. We finally left.
