Ratings for Dr. David M. Spalding
Dr. David Spaulding is an EXCELLENT doctor. He diagnosed something rare by second visit which was within 2 weeks and got me on the road to recovery. He asks all the right questions and his nurse and staff are also very knowledgeable and caring. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DR. SPAULDING, even if you have to travel to get to him.
Horrible doctor, see ANY other dr beside this one. He did a basic range of motion test in under 5 minutes and said I didn't have arthritis. Even though I have had surgery on my left shoulder to remove arthritis, been to two other drs in Atlanta that said I had arthritis after seeing MRIs of my hip and lower back. His staff is rude also to boot. I was like you have see me for 5 minutes and these others drs did MRI, CTs and Xrays so think I am going to believe I have arthritis. I guess my surgery to remove arthritis was for nothing also, lol. Truly a ridiculous doctor and a huge waste of time. Now I have to go to another REAL doctor to get help since Dr Spaulding was such a joke.
I was referred to him by my transplant surgeon for painful joint/bone pain. He was very nice, informative & explained everything in detail concerning my issues & after-care. I received several injections that worked immediately & they were NOT painful. Another dr had told me that I needed surgery & had given me several painful injections w/o numbing the area or explaining anything. I'm so thankful to Dr. Spalding & I have referred several friends & family members to him. He is a no nonsense dr who tells you like it is...I like that!
Ok I know im a Medicaid patient so I shouldnt be complaining but I cant help it. He is the worst doctor I have ever dealt with. After waiting 2 hours at his of I was finally seen by his foreign intern who asked all the questions. The Dr Spalding decided to make an appearance for FIVE MINUTES! In that five minutes he managed to put me in so much discomfort that my kids were scared and he demanded my mother to take my children outside. No bedside manners at all! He did no blood work (I was sent to him because ive been tested positive for ankylosing spondylitis 3 times) and insisted that it was not ankylosing spondylitis that it was bursitis. He then gave me injections in my hips which left me barely able to walk for a week with 2 toddlers to take care of. I did not go back to him for almost a year but seeing as how im on medicaid there isnt that many reumitologist that will see me. So now im going to be forced to see him once again because the pain in my spine has worsened.
