This year Is the seventh year that I’ve had the knee shot series from Dr. Spellman. I feel very fortunate to have been referred to Dr. Spellman as he has helped me keep my knees in good shape and to avoid knee replacements. Personally I think that early intervention is the key to to protecting the knee(s) from necessitating a knee(s) replacement. Dr. Spellman is honest he told me in the beginning that when the shots no longer work that I’d have to get the replacement, I respect that and am very grateful for his help over the years. I highly recommend that anyone experiencing knee discomfort or who prefers to try a non- surgical method first to see Dr. Spellman. Sincerely, M. Signore

Excellent Doctor
I had to get another shot in my bad left knee. It was done quickly with no problems. Very little pain involved. Just a pricking from the needle like when getting blood drawn.

Efficient treatment without the fuss, good doctor!
I have had various joint injuries and pain through the years and always expect the same dance, ho through 6-8 weeks of “PT”; take an anti-inflammatory and when drained of deductibles enough, get a steroidal shot. Dr. Spellman didn’t bother with the Add-ons (especially since they would have been useless) - he treated the problem, advised on recovery and predicted I’d be back for a 2nd treatment since, as a type 1 diabetic, my treatment was reduced to prevent spikes. It’s nice to see a doctor more interested in Tx than $$$!

Trusted Healthcare Provider
Dr. Spellman is always willing to take time to talk through conditions, answer all questions and discuss options. I have never felt that he has rushed discussions and has taken great care to ensure that I have understood diagnoses and treatment options so that I can make the best decisions about my care plan.

I've been a patient of Dr. Spellman's for over 25 years. I like his surgery conservative approach to treatment, yet recommending surgery when other options have not given sustained relief. I have seen him for plantar fasciitis, carpal tunnel of the wrist, and osteoarthritis of the knee.

I went to Dr. Spellman for a rotator cuff injury from a slip and fall on ice in January. He was very professional and informative and treated the injury with a Novocain and cortisone injection which has given me great relief from the pain.

Caring and Careful
Dr. Spellman expresses concern for my wellbeing while he is administering injections, and always asks for my evaluation of how much good they are doing. I'm pleased that my knee pain has been greatly diminished, and I can walk regularly and go to the Y again. Staff is friendly and helpful.

Dr Spellman and his staff are EXCELLENT! If you are having joint pain- make an appointment today. I was having pain in my knee and was able to get xrays done right on site at my first appointment! Saw Dr Spellman during same appt and he recommended a viscous injection for my torn meniscus. Had my insurance company approved it quickly enough, I could have had that done the same day as well! I was approved for 4 injections over several weeks and after my first injection- I felt 95% better. I have completed my 4 total injections and am 100% back to normal. Dr Spellman was always on time for my appointments, discussed my xray findings with me, answered all my questions in layman's terms and explained all my options. I would recommend Dr Spellman to anyone and in fact, already have!!
