I saw Dr. Spellman initially because of severe knee pain with each step I took. After five weekly visits to get injections, I have had my first day of walking about with NO PAIN AT ALL!!! I would highly recommend Dr. Spellman to anyone needing an orthopedic doctor.

I visited Dr. Spellman for a low back/hip problem. He took the time to listen to/develop an understanding of my issues, review my X-ray films, conduct strength/flexibility tests and develop/ explain his diagnosis and treatment methodology. His explanation included review of illustrations in a medical manual relevant to my condition. He was patient, attentive and thorough.

I came to Dr. Spellman with a torn meniscus. I liked his conservative approach and that he didn't immediately start pushing surgery. He was attentive and used professional photos and table models to inform me about my injury and what steps I might take to help relieve the pain. His focus was on helping me understand the situation and helping me make my own decision about the best course of action for me.

Highly recommended. Dr. Spellman always takes the time to provide a detailed, simple explanation of your condition and immediately initiates or prescribes the appropriate the medical treatment to alleviate the issue. His treatments, injections and expertise have been most effective for me over many years of shoulder, knee, back problems and other assorted injuries.

Dr. Spellman is an excellent healthcare provider. He's very thorough and professional. He listens to his patients and is very attentive. He has treated me for a number of minor injuries over the past 8 years with excellent success. I've recommended him highly to my friends and colleagues and will continue to do so. In my opinion, he is a true healer!

Dr. Spellman and his staff are terrific. I arrived at my scheduled time and was seen within 5 minutes of arriving. I needed an x-ray and got that done within 10 minutes, returned to Doctor's office and Dr. Spellman had the results soon after. He reviewed the x-ray results with me and provided a plan of treatment. The entire visit was very prompt and efficient, from arrival time to exit was approximately 25 minutes. I will return to Dr. Spellman again if I have any other orthopedic issues.
in Hatfield, PA |
Seen by doctor himself, not an assistant. Very professional, respectful, friendly manner. Listened carefully and answered questions to my satisfaction. Asked for feedback.
in Lansdale, PA |
Great experience surrounding my ongoing care with the Doctor himself and the staff. Dr Spellman explained my condition simply in human terms and didn't sugar coat a thing as sever as my condition is getting. I am able to stay fit and active as he explained my limitations as well. I recently got married ans switched health carriers. Melinda really held my hand in the transition to my new Keystone policy and was even able too obtain my ID cards herself before I even knew my own ID #'s. TY!
in Lansdale, PA |
I actually look forward to my office visits. The staff is very friendly, I rarely have to wait more than 5 minutes. Dr Spellman listens and takes as much time as needed to be sure I understand any procedures he has to perform. He instills trust and knowledge with his explanations. I highly recommend him to anyone in need.

last week I could't walk because of back pain I saw Dr. Spellman and he explained in laymans terms exactly what the problem was and prescribed accordingly. Had a 2nd appt. a week later I was walking great. He took the time to show me some exercises to do to help the back and took the time to explain the issues. What a great help Dr. Spellman was, and I will continue to seek his advice. Thank You Dr. Spellman

Dr. Spellman evaluated my pain and made several recommendations for treatment. He explained each one to me and I made my decision on his recommendation. He has treated my arthritic knees for at least 5 years and let me know when it was time for a total replacement. It was the best thing I ever did. He has a great staff and it is very easy to schedule appointments. I have been very happy with my experience with him.

Dr. Spellman took his time explaining in great detail what my condition was and the steps he would recommend in treatment.
in Lansdale, PA |
Dr. Spellman evaluated my knee problem thoroughly and made sure I understood what the cause of my pain was. He then outlined a course of treatment and carried it out efficiently, being careful to elicit my response to the previous week's treatment each time. The pain that had kept me from walking and using stairs went away and stayed away for six months, which is better than I had hoped.
in Norristown, PA |
Thoroughly evaluated me and then took sufficient time to explain and show me what was occurring with my shoulder. Carefully and thoroughly explained treatment and talked through each step as administered. Made sure I was no longer in pain and scheduled a follow-up in case I needed it. Overall, completely satisfied with the treatment I received.
in Lansdale, PA |
Very no nonsense and to the point.
in North Wales, PA |
Dr. Spellman went well beyond expectations to resolve a painful elbow infection. On two occasions, he adjusted his schedule so that he could quickly address my issue. Dr. Spellman & his staff saw to it that I experienced minimal pain during treatment. He was very friendly, extremely thorough, and took the time to listen & manage expectations. I thanked him for performing a procedure during non-office hours. His response was, "we need to help people." He is truly a treasure.

After having a knee injury that was still painful after 4 years Dr. Spellman provided me with several treatment options. The one he recommended strongly to me is currently working, I have less knee pain and now I am more active than I was since the injury.
in Gwynedd, PA |
I have been a patient of Dr. Spellman for over 20 years, as have my children. I have nothing but great things to say about my experiences. From my experiences with minor injuries to having surgery, everything has had great outcomes.
in Lansdale, PA |
I saw Dr. Spellman to get a second opinion on my right hip. Unlike the previous doctors I had seen, Dr. Spellman took the time to explain and demonstrate exactly what was happening and why the pain was not in my hip although it was caused by deterioration in my hip. He also suggested a reason for the pain could be torn cartilage in the hip socket and outlined a procedure that could test that theory even though he would not be performing it himself.
in Perkasie, PA |
After frustration with the big offices in our area, I was forthunate to find Dr. Spellman to assist in an ankle injury I had been suffering with. He was very knowledgeable, conversational, and listened to me thoroughly. He spent more time making sure my treatment was effective then any Dr. I have been to in 20 years. I would absolutely recommend calling Dr. Spellman for your orthopedic needs.
in Lansdale, PA |
Dr. Spellman was very helpful in solving my back pain issues. He took a lot of time to carefully explain my problem, in detail, and what I needed to do in order to solve the problem, without resorting to surgery. The care and treatment he provided was outstanding. I was in a great deal of pain when I went to him for treatment. Now, two weeks later, I have no pain at all, and feel great. Highly recommend his practice.
