What People Say About Dr. Timothy Spurling, MD

Not just a great doctor who goes way over and above to provide the best of care but also a fine man and someone I consider a friend. When I was in ICU in a coma the last time I had a bowel resection he came and visited and spent time with my wife and family, and more than a week later he came and visited me when I had finally made it to a regular hospital room. This is a very special man and doctor who really cares about his patients. I have the utmost confidence in him and respect for him.

Very upfront with the information I asked for,scheduled my procedure that day and called my prescription in the same day without me having to ask. None of my other doctors will do that.
