2/19/12 4 4 5 5 The doctor really saved me. I never thought I’d need a foot doctor or surgery, however because of my genetics and bad footwear I was actually in need. It’s now 6 months later after my surgery and I FOLLOWED DR’s INSTRUCTIONS, (I can’t say this enough, because at first I went back a few times complaining after my surgery, but this time I actually followed his instructions) and everything was perfect – he was right on all accounts. It was really hard to chose a doctor and what I’ve found is that experience wins. There were many doctors that paint a pretty picture and a lot of hype. Dr Spellman is just an awesome doctor he told me that the way he did my surgery adheres to the proper medical standards so it won’t just grow right back as well being cosmetically appealing. From my extensive research I knew what he was talking about because the regular bunion doctors leave terrible scars and the cosmetic guys don’t do the right procedure and it grows right back. Thank you Dr Spellman!!!
