An internist is a physician who focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of conditions that affect the adult population—both acute and chronic.
These doctors are often who adults see as their primary physicians because they treat a broad range of illnesses that do not require surgical or specialist interventions. They also work to help a patient maintain optimal health in order to prevent the onset of disease.
In addition to treating the common cold and flu, internists also treat chronic diseases like diabetes and heart disease.

Dr. Spence is always kind and caring. I have been his patient for over 24 years. He loves what he does (being a physician) and it shows.
I have been a patient of his for over 25 years and he is always considerate of my concerns. He listens to the problem and then offers his ideas on how to proceed. He always takes into consideration what you think about the problem. He also does not hesitate to tell you the truth, with compassion; if you need to lose weight, for example, or stop smoking. He will then make every effort to help you. Do make an appt. and judge for yourself how understanding he is.
Very kind and considerate,listens and does not talk "AT" you but with you. Gives you the facts on improving your health and suggestions to help you make an informed decision. Never has been demeaning or condescending. Very professional and knowledgeable, staff is also caring, kind and professional. I would recommend Dr Spence to my family, friends and strangers.
