    Only waited about 10 to 15 minutes. Dr. Spears was very straight forward. He didn't beat around the bush. He told us exactly like it was and we appreciate that. Finally someone with honesty, Integrity and a doctor that won't put you through it if it isn't going to do anything to help you! I highly recommend him to anyone with spine/back issues. And although it wasn't what we wanted to hear at least we know what lies ahead.

    My husband and I have each had 2 surgeries by Dr Spears. We could not be more pleased with the results. He's all business and isn't much interested in chatting, but when we listened without interupting, we found most all of our questions had been answered. We highly recommend Dr Spears to friends and family.
