What People Say About Dr. Patrick Spalding, MD
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful
A word of caution with this Dr.....think many times before becoming a patient!!! I went in for a NovaSure Procedure, nothing else was authorized by me or my insurance...he performed a partial DNC when I confronted him, he stopped, and I left. He & his staff refuse to give me a copy of my medical records. The CA State Medical Board working on my case currently-still NOT complying. They also refusing to refund my money for a procedure that was not done. I have a case pending elsewhere for this.

Dr. Spalding is great. He's very honest and to the point, which I appreciate in a health care provider. The nurses in his office are very kind and personable. I also love that he has midwives in his office. Fantastic care all around. I always felt like I was being heard, my needs were met, and I never left confused or uncertain.
