I was surprised to learn that I had a fast growing cataract at my age, but very happy that I was under the care of Dr. Spellman and staff. From start to finish, it was a turn-key operation with great success. From my very first appointment of discussing possible surgery until my post op appointment, Dr. Spellman and his staff were informative, professional, caring and reassuring. I could not have asked for better care than I received from the entire team. Hats off to all of them for giving me my eyesight back again! It's so good to see what I've been missing for awhile. Thanks to Dr. Spellman and his professional staff.
Before I went to Dr. Spellman I had cataracts and could not see very well at all. He operated me which was a very simple and non-pain, fast operation with good and professional people helping you every step of the way. I now can see very well and I can see without my glasses. I need glasses to read and work on my computer but now I can drive at night without the glasses and can see very well. Thank you Dr. Spellman and staff. You guys are great!
