15/08/12 5 5 5 5 Great doctor, I been his patient for over 20 years, always helpful and knowledgeable. Most importantly during office visits he takes his time, answers your questions and is very thorough. The office staff is unbelievable, never rude and every time I have an issue with medications, procedures or appointments they are ready to help. Highly recommend this practice.

30/11/11 4 3 3 5 My whole family has seen Dr. Spellun for many years. For the most part he has been great, but I believe its time for a change. Its getting increasingly more difficult to get an appointment with Dr. Spellun in a timely manner, even for established patients! His bedside manner can be a little abrupt sometimes, and he's too quick to blame being overweight as a reason for everyones problems. On the plus side, he is very conscientous, and will quickly return calls. He doesn't over order too many tests. I still think he's an excellent doctor, but I think a 2nd opinion is needed for my family member.

14/04/10 5 5 5 5 Awesome docotr!! I've been a patient of his for over 7 years. He takes the extra time to explain everything. Doesn't rush you into making a decision about meds. Always calls you back, weekends, Holidays, doesn't matter. Highly recommend.
