Patient Comments (2)
Dr Spear is very kind and compassionate. I have really enjoyed having her as my doctor. There are certain areas of medicine she admits she is more comfortable with than others and she is willing to do her best to find something out for me when she doesn't know. Or she will refer me. Either way, I have always received excellent care when I can get in to see her. She has been hard to find sometimes because she has been at several different practices. I like her honesty and she has a huge heart.
I went in for a yearly papsmear and birth control prescription. Dr. Spear said the pap was unnecessary and wasteful due to my age (20). She then lectured me on how having sex before marriage will lead to severe depression, increase the risk of your future marriage failing, you should be submissive to your husband, that I will have to answer to God one day about this, and that God intended on people to have only one partner. All she did was listen to my heartbeat and breathing, then lecture.
