I've seen Dr. Spellman for a number of years, various different 'ailments', from a neck injury, sore shoulder, hip injury, to tendonitis. He is always kind, thorough, patient, and very professional - both, he and his staff.

I was completely satisfied with my five visits to Dr. Spellman to treat my knee. Besides giving the injections that worked well, he was able to make several points to me in a unique way about what to do and what not to do in using my knee.

I visited Dr. Spellman after experiencing some growing discomfort in my right knee. X-rays were taken on location during my initial visit. Dr. Spellman then reviewed them with me, thoroughly explained the nature of my condition with the help of some reference photos, and put forth a suggested treatment plan. Although an initial cortisone shot failed to provide much relief, the administration of five weekly lubrication shots has my knee feeling right as rain, with marked improvement noted after the 2nd injection. Both the doctor and staff were pleasant and courteous, scheduling was easy, and with the exception of one day when things got a little backed up, there was virtually no wait time. No pain was felt during the injections and Dr. Spellman always asked to make sure I was comfortable. He also took great care around the injection site to guard against any possibility of infection. I'm greatly impressed with the efficiency & quality of care provided by Dr. Spellman and his staff.

I came to see Dr Spellman for the pain in my wrist. It has been bothering me for few weeks not going away as I expected. Dr Spellman diagnosed and explains the problem I have with my wrist and recommend the treatments for it. He fix the problem right away. I appreciate the explanation and suggestions how he plans to treat my wrist now and in the future that assures me I am in his good hands. Thank you Dr Spellman

Dr. Spellman is a seasoned veteran orthopedics health care professional. I came to him with very painful knees. After two different sets of x-rays he verified both knees as being arthritic. He carefully gave me cortisone shots then rescheduled me for three sets of lubricant shots. I must admit that Dr. Spellman has a very gentle touch. There was no pain getting them. After almost a week since my last visit I am feeling 100% better! My only regret is wishing that I went to him years ago!

Dr Spellman is both friendly and professional, he has treated my arthritic knee over the last six years with great results. He did arthroscopic surgery that lasted approximately four or five years until symptoms returned. I have just finished a series of three shots today to maintain the ability to walk and work with a minimum of pain. I would definitely recommend Dr. Spellman to get yourself back to your old self when you could move without joint pain.
