    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.

Great doctor and man!

Dr. Spence is truly No. 1 in my book! He diagnosed my P.D. at its very onset. I am grateful to him for that, but also for the excellent care he has given us for the past 25 years.

Terrific Doctor

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.
