Have you seen Dr. Jesse Spear?
Excellent physician with great bedside manners
Posted on November 9th, 2017
I was referred to Dr. Spear by one of my physician colleagues and I am very happy to have him as my PCP. Dr Spear does not have the "shot gun" approach where a physician orders every lab and imaging possible to practice defensive medicine. He has a systematic approach where he orders IF needed. He is prompt in his reply to emails and will get back to you as soon as he can. As patients, we need to understand doctors have a busy lifestyle and if they don't get back with you in a day or two, it is ok. They are most likely tending to other patients who have higher priority or urgent medical needs. In this day and age of complex insurance issues, it becomes taxing on physicians and staff to get everything in due time. We, as the patients, need to be patient and work with the system. Patience is a virtue after all. Thank you very much, Dr. Spear.
Doesn't Listen and Dismissive
Posted on October 7th, 2015
I've been seeing Dr. Spear for several years, since he took over Dr. Monger's patients in Fishers, IN, though I'm in search of a new PCP currently. Several times I've gone in for concerns of finding lumps under my skin, or growths on my skin, and he's always been very dismissive. I've still got a lump in my chest, painful [what appear to be] lymph nodes under my left arm and left breast, which he continues to claim is nothing to worry about about (for at least 3 years now), and a growth on the side of my face, which came back after he burned it off with liquid nitrogen. Each time I brough it up, I felt like I was silently being called a hypocondriac, but these things really do concern me, because cancer runs on my mother's side of the family, in many different forms, which I explained to him. I even found lumps in my testicles, which he dismissed before even checking, and finally did check after I kept expressing my concern, but after only a few seconds of trying to locate the lumps, he told me he didn't feel anything, and said it's probably nothing. Only after I said that I wanted it checked did he refer me to get an ultrasound. It turns out that I do have a cyst at the top of each epididymis, but the main lump I was concerned with is a blood clot within the epididymis, which he continues to state is no big deal unless there is pain associated with it, which there isn't. I just feel like you go into his office, and pay to be judged and dismissed. I will say that he's very nice, and pretty punctual, but he just does not listen or express concern. Sadly, that's the whole reason I left the doctor prior Dr. Monger, who Dr. Spear took over for when Dr. Monger moved out of state. One nice thing about Dr. Spear is that he is not quick to prescribe medication to cover up whatever it is you're dealing it, especially antibiotics.
I take every complaint from every patient serious. However, sometimes the best and right thing to do for a patient is simply reassurance if I do not think there is a serious problem. Not every symptom requires a test. I've never dismissed a patient who has a testicular lump. I hope this patient finds a doctor that is the right fit for him.

Would not recommend Dr. Spears terrible bedside manner, doesn't listen to issues I had come to him for.
I am unable to provide much of a response to this complaint because it is lacking in specifics. I have many patients who think I have a great bedside manner and listen to what they have to say. Apparently my style does not fit with this patient's expectations.
Do NOT go here

I called to make an appointment. The receptionist was very rude. Then put me on hold for 10 minutes just to hang up on me. I called back. She put me on hold again before I could even speak. I called back again...you guessed it, hold again. I was just trying to make a simple appointment. If this is how they treat people, you should stay away.
I am not surprised that this patient had this experience with this particular office. I no longer work for this particular medical group at this previous office.
Excellent Young Doctor

Kind, respectful, and knowledgeable doctor who hopefully will be around for another thirty years to take me into my 70s!
