    Went in for lower back pain. Dr. Spencer didn't spend enough time with me during the appointment and didn't communicate well with me during the appointment and just wanted to send me out to get a CAT scan of my lower back area without even blinking. A CAT Scan while not considering the amount of radiation that it omits to the reproductive area being a female. Avoid him.

    I have been a patient of Dr. C. Spencer III for 15 years. I was employed as a professional nurse. My spine was failing me, and I required the care of a seasoned professional. His level of expertise in the surgical area is excellent. He has guided me through some extremely difficult spinal problems. I am now doing very well. He has always explained everything clearly, & welcomes questions. He utilizes an exceptional RN first assistant in surgery. The teamwork is beyond rapport & to the patient's
