What People Say About Dr. William Spellman, MD

I saw Dr. Spellman for knee pain, which he quickly diagnosed as being related to arthritic changes. He administered hyaluronic acid injections for 4 weeks, which led to a significant decrease in my pain level. What I really appreciated was the time Dr. Spellman took to explain what is going on anatomically with my knees, give me recommendations on activity modifications and my treatment options. I never felt rushed, yet I never had to wait long to see him on my appointments.

Dr Spellman was very helpful and his staff was great! I had problems with my insurance company covering my knee shots, and they worked with me to get it taken care of. The knee therapy worked very well. I’m very happy with them.

I had visited Dr. Spellman for shoulder pain. From the moment he entered the examination room, it was clear that he cared about the patient. He had a very pleasant demeanor. He was NEVER rushing through the examination, as if he had to get somewhere after this. He took time explaining what rotator cuff meant, using a model of shoulder joint. He provided an explanation on what treatemtn options are available and a rough statistics on how many patients feel relief with each option. Prior to the procedure, he clearly mentioned what was in the cocktail of medicines and what each one of those was supposed to do. All through the examination and the procedure, he engaged me in conversation that the procedure was quite painless. He stayed in the room for a good 10 minutes after the procedure to make sure that there aren't any immediate side effects and made sure that the procedure was effective in providing relief to my shoulder pain. Needless to say, he had answered all my questions.

Dr. Spellman gets right to the problem. He is very direct and does not waste time. No surgery was needed so I can't recommend him for that but feel I would go to him if it was needed. His staff was extremely nice and helpful.
