My wife had her parotid gland removed. Dr Spafford was very knowledgeable and, despite a busy schedule, did an excellent job of explaining what to expect. Follow up care was excellent and he was available on short notice when minor unexpected complications occurred.

Great surgeon. Had a rhino and septoplasty and he did an amazing job helping me be able to breathe normal again, he also was very easy to contact during recovery over the phone for any needed questions

Dr. Spafford took out my tonsils 2 weeks ago. He was so nice and easy to talk to, though it is obvious that he is always in a hurry. Nonetheless, he did a great job on my surgery and his punctuality was amazing. He checked on me 4 times in the hospital and made sure all of my questions were answered before I was discharged. My healing process has been great and I have had no bleeding. I would highly recommend him to anyone for surgery.

Take my advice, if your family doctor refers you to Dr. Spafford ask for another doctor. He has the worst bedside manner I have ever seen and zero personality. It's all about how many patients he can get through in a day. If they would allow him to set up a conveyor belt to get patients through even quicker I'm sure he would do it. Not a nice man !!! A bit full of himself.

Dr. Spafford is a LIAR! We have been seeing him since my son was under a year old. We have been going through his hoops to get his tonsils/adnoids out since he was 3. It's been almost 3 years and he is still refusing to do them because he doesn't want to do them at RUH and wants them done at his preference hospital St. Pauls. We've done the sleep study, we've done resp. therapist/doctors, we've done everything he's asked and tests came back stating it needs to be done as well as recommendations from other doctors it be done. He said we were on the waiting list but when I called he wasn't on the list at all. He also needs new tubes 3rd time and refuses to clean his ears unless the tubes get put back in. A year with tubes just sitting in the canal and the kid's hearing is decreasing daily and he doesn't care just keep coming in for office visits to line his money pockets. Every time we go in he says something different. I am definitely going to a new doctor!

Dr. Spafford did my tonsillectomy in Oct/15. The office visit was quick, but I got my questions and concerns answered. My surgery and recovery time was as expected. My son now needs a tonsillectomy and saw Dr. Spafford in consultation. Again, he was to the point but answered all questions. He was recommend by my family GP as his bleed rate is the lowest for tonsillectomy. That, for me, is enough to know he is a skilled surgeon and I would want the best working on me and my family.

Dr spafford knowd his stuff but I feel he is no longer caring for his patients! I have been taking my daughter to him since she was one and have been told by my family physician she def needs her tonsils out and he refuses! Just shrugged us off the last few visits, even though my daughter has been on 11 dosis of auntibiotics this year for tonsilitis! So we got a second opinion with Dr Showman, so glad we did! My daughters adnoids are 40 percent bigger thsn they should be, spafford never tested her adnoids, ever! And said her tonsils are way too big! Do not recommend Spafford he is horrible!

I had a septoplasty and turbinate reduction in July of this year and I am happy with the results and I am very grateful he did not pack my nose. He is a good surgeon but lacks people skills. He seemed annoyed when I asked questions about the surgery and rushed me to sign the consent form and to get out of the office. Because of that I would not recommend going to him.

I took my 9 year old daughter in recently. He made us feel as though we were wasting his time, he dismissed our family doctor's concern, and was rather rough with my daughter when he needed to adjust the angle of her head during examination.
