Dr. Spencer removed a bone spur in my left shoulder over 15 years ago. He did an awesome job so when I started having a lot of pain with my right shoulder there was no question who I wanted to see!

Yes I have been seeing him for years. Very thorough and concerned. Great bedside manner. Listens and compassionate. Stays with you longer and listens to concerns. Isn’t in a hurry like so many now. Highly recommended. Goes the extra mile.
