      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.

      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.
