Specialties

Dr. Eric M Spencer has the following 2 specialties

  • Orthopaedic Surgery
  • Surgery of the Hand

    Hand surgeons are certified surgeons who are also experts in the function and structure of your wrists, hands and forearms. This allows them to treat arthritis, carpal tunnel, trigger finger and tennis elbow, most of which tend to result from repetitive and excessive use of the corresponding joints, muscles, tendons and ligaments.
    Hand surgeons also commonly work with patients who have fractures or broken bones from any kind of accident. If you're experiencing any kind of general pain in your hand, wrist or forearm that isn’t going away, a hand surgeon is probably your best resource.

Disappointed

Do not expect any care or concern from this doctor. He is purely mechanical and doesn't even return calls to patients.

Great doctor!

I went to Dr. Spencer when I had problems with my wrist after my pregnancy. He fixed that with a cortisone shot and have had no issues with my wrist again. Saw him again a few years later when I fractured my foot. Followed his treatment plan and my foot is all better. He has a great bedside manner, answers my questions and genuinely cares about his patients. Would highly recommend him!

Four Stars

After reading some of the reviews I was a little Leary about seeing dr spencer. But I went and to my suprise I was taken in on time. The Dr saw me. Spent time with me and answered all my questions. Also gave me all my options. Other ten the woman at the front desk being a little overwhelmed it was one of the best visits to an orthopedic office I have ever had.

One Star

I do not beleive this doctor was not totally honest with the medical information he provided to me. He is more geared to stearing and intimidating the patient into surgery ....which may or may not make the condition worse. He is somewhat arrogant which is not a pleasing personality trait- I need a more honest, empathetic doctor , who is will to share his truthful knowlegde of procedures and their possible outcomes. (Might be a $$ thing?) Thank God- I am mobile enough to seek out additional ,medical attention.

Bad

Operated on my knee, told me he didn't think I needed pt. Two years later I got a second opinion, and pt. my knee is a lot better but still hurts. His office feels like a factory, people just in and out constantly ( when I was there anyway). I would not recommend.
