“Dr. Spero was very informative and actually listened to my health concerns. He told me exactly what was going on with my lower back based on my scans. He even pointed to and showed me the issue that was causing me pain. He explained that surgery was my best option for relieving my pain and briefly walked me through how the procedure would happen. My overall experience with Dr. Spero was great, and I feel so much better now.”
