VIP True Care - Not!

This is the third location he moved to and the last one must have been the charm because he is very lax when comes to patient care. Staff may answer the phone and get back to you if they feel like it. Oh what staff.... A receptionist, a part time nurse practitioner, and a bunch of medical student interns. If you are looking for a professional medical office that provide solid medical need DO NOT GO TO Erie County Medical Center VIP TRUE Care.

Good General Practitioner

Dr. Sperry is very smart, courteous and has a good bedside manner. He was recommended by a co-worker 6 years ago and I wouldn't switch for anything.
