Our Patients Say It Best

“Dr Shepard is the best! He listens, he explains well and I have great confidence in him! I also have never waited more than 5 days for an appointment to see him….truly a rarity!”
-Edward B
“Spectrum Orthopedics gives superb care to their patients. As I have aged, unfortunately I have fallen a couple of times and have seen 3 doctors there. Just love Dr. Lykins! And the other two have been excellent as well.”
-Gail M
“I’m a previous Crystal Clinic patient when I worked in Akron. While they are outstanding I now work from home and wanted to explore options closer to me in North Canton. I’ve been to Spectrum twice, once for my elbow and once for my knees. Different Doctors but same experience. They were prompt, professional and knowledgeable.”
-Deloris D.P.
“Spectrum was the right place to go for my knee and shoulder surgery! Everyone was very helpful and worked around my schedule/vacation time to perform both surgeries within an 8-day period. Thank you Spectrum for everything!”
-Sandor Z
“Absolutely wonderful experience from preparation, to surgery, to post surgery physical therapy. Dr. Lykens did a great job with this total reverse shoulder replacement. All staff are thoroughly professional and competent. Appointments on time and call backs received promptly. First class all the way. Highly recommend.”
-Kevin C
