Rotton doctor

Dr. Spencer is rude, bizarre (i.e. He pushed me, insisted that I lift weights, even though I told him that I am in chronic pain. He was laughing at me as I attempted to talk about my symptoms, He didn't bother to look at my records), practically tells you that you are a liar. If you have to go to this guy expect the worse.

Dr. Spencer operated on my back 6 yrs ago. after 4 or 5 months of healing I am pain free, I have been careful to follow the weight limits lifting. I play golf 3-4 days a week , no leg discomfort nor back pain, Dr. Spencer is a kind, caring surgeon who takes time to talk and listen to you. I am 75 years young

For back related pain, he's the man to see

After suffering with spine related pain for more than 10 years, taking pain pills, doing PT, getting steroid injections, etc., I finally (thankfully) went to see Dr. Spencer. He performed an out-patient procedure and viola! I no longer had pain. Definitely life changing surgery for me. He's the best in his field!

Trusted family Doctor

Dr. Spencer has performed 2 surgeries for me. When I was in pain, he made me not hurt, when I could not walk, he made me walk again. When I had questions, he was always there for me with the right answers. When my son inherited the same conditions as I, we saw the good Dr. I trust this man as the best in his field.
