    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.

    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.
