Very unhappy with my Dr. Spelts. I went to see him to have osteopathic manipulation treatment, and was told that he doesn't actually do that because they don't have time for that type of work with current insurance issues. All I received from seeking out his care was a referral to overpriced physical therapy and a SIX HUNDRED DOLLAR BILL. I can't even begin to tell you how angry and upset this makes me. I sat in his office, unable to move my neck and he offered no tools to help me get better.

I highly recommend Dr. Spelts. He is very thorough, knowledgable, and takes the time to explain your condition and treatment and ensures your understanding of both. He also takes the time to answer your questions and concerns. Outstanding experience !
