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.
