Dr. Spelts was professional, I was happy I got an X-ray, the nurse was so nice and my diagnosis enabled me to start my PT today.

Dr Spelts in as incredible doctor. He is very personable and explains things in a way the patient will understand his/her condition rather than trying to showing off his medical vocabulary. Dr Spelts will spend as much time with you as needed, he doesn’t make you feel rushed or your concern is trivial. He is one of the best doctors out there, I highly recommend him.

Very pleased with my five knee shots. I am feeling much better and enjoyed each visit. Very professional and caring. His assistant is great!”

“Like most active seniors, I have been “endowed” with osteoarthritis of the knees, in spite of a healthy diet, no smoking, moderate drinking and regular exercise. They say osteoarthritis is just an inherent part of the “Golden Years” of life. I have found it to be a persistent poaching of pleasure, by limiting all activity involving the knees. What a pleasure to have discovered Southern California Orthopedic Institute and Dr. Spelts! Him and his staff have been attentive to my needs, generous with the time spent listening and proposing alternate solutions, and painless in the performance of the resolution to the issue. The normal intention of the “waiting room,” has lost it’s meaning at SCOI because appointment times are observantly kept. My experience here has given me every expectation of extending the serviceability of my knees for many years to come, enjoying life to its fullest, thanks to these medical professionals!”

“Dr. Getelman and Dr. Spelts treated me. I injured my right knee in February of 2013. Both doctors took very good care of me. I would recommend Southern California Orthopedic Institute to everyone I know. Also, thank you to all the great staff.”

“I have had nothing but a wonderful experience with Dr. Spelts. I have been seeing him off and on for almost seven years. He is a fantastic physician that is extremely thorough, has a great bedside manner, caring, understanding of your condition, knowledgeable, and overall awesome. I have been to various different doctors and Dr. Spelts is one of the few that I know I can trust.”
