We recently visited Dr. Speed Spencer after my mother discovered a lump. At 80 years of age the process for my mother was a bit intimidating. Dr. Spencer's bedside manner was gentle, her words of support were affirming, her care for my mother was thorough. We are at the beginning of this particular journey and I feel confident that we are in very capable and caring hands.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer June of 2018. I was referred to Dr. Spencer. From the moment I stepped into the Global Breast Health and Wellness Center's office I felt a since of relaxation. When I met Dr. Spencer her professionalism and caring gave me a since of comfort. She explained in detail about breast cancer and answered any question that I had with professionalism and compassion. My surgery was a success and I feel fantastic. I would recommend Dr. Spencer to anyone!

Dr. Speed is one of the best doctors around. Not only is she extremely knowledgeable but her compassion for what she does is very evident. Whether you are her patient or not, she with your permission, consults and encourages everyone. Her words are very encouraging and make you realize that as women, we have to consciously make time for ourselves. Also her offices remind me of a Spa! You feel so relaxed when entering either of her offices. Also, her staff is so pleasant.

Dr. Speed is an excellent doctor. Very personable with great bedside manner. Dr. Speed made sure I am very comfortable. Her staff was able to fit me very short notice. She listened to all of my concerns and showed great interest. I DEFINITELY recommend her to anyone having anxiety about their breast. I wish ALL doctors were like her!!

I have not in my entire life come across another doctor as compassionate and caring as Dr. Speed. I am more than grateful to my primary care physician who referred me to Dr Speed so that she could perform my breast surgery. On the day of the surgery she made sure she came to check on me in the waiting area I told her I was very nervous and she gave me words of encouragement and told me it was normal for me to feel this way. We prayed together. I love Dr. Speed and so will you!!

Dr, Speed is the most caring doctor. She treats her patients like their her own family. I just wish l would have know about her sooner. Like my god says weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning light. And Dr. Speed is truly a shinning light that god has place in a lot of people lives.
