Patient Comments (4)
Spent 2 minutes with me. He was quick to prescribe pain medication without establishing a long term treatment plan. Clearly, I will not be seeing Dr. Spencer again and would not I recommend him.

I have been going to Doc Spencer since 1991 in which I have had 6 surgeries on the lower back, and he is definitely one of the best bar none. Always willing to answer any questions you might have with not only the patient but with the family as well.

He is the very best! He has done 2 surgeries on me and I could not recommend him more. He is great!
in Galesburg, IL |
Dr Spencer is AMAZING! He not only cares for the patient but her cares for the patient's family. He was thorough and professional but very down to earth. You left the office truly understanding your condition and what procedures were going to entail. He personally returns phone calls! In this day and age he still is the persona of the kind family doctor you USED to hear about. We would recommend him to everyone we meet. God bless you Dr. Spencer.
