I have read the other reviews and can't believe some of the negative comments. I have absolutely nothing negative to say about Dr. Spivey. I have seen him many times. I find him to be professional, intelligent, friendly,and caring. I have never had an issue with him. I have also never had a problem with him being willing to treat my pain with whatever is the best solution based on my symptoms and his professional knowledge. He is always in a good mood and I like his sense of humor too! LOL

I started seeing Dr Spivey and 2014 for back pain and sciatic pain. He ruled out nerve issues and a blood clots. After talking to two back surgeons I went with the lumbar decompression surgery. But Dr Spivey did the injections and did his best to keep me out of pain so I could continue to work. It was the best decision I made. He is a very upfront and honest and some people can't take it. So if you don't want a solution and you just want meds then no he may not be the right doctor for you!

If you are in real legitimate pain, do not go to him! He does not believe you at all unless, he says"he has proof" from other doctors. Even with that he assumes you are drug seeking. After providing him with all the documents he wanted he told me, "You don't look like you are in pain take something over the counter." Due to stomach problems I can't. He has lost all compassion and is in it for the money now.

Have gone to PPM for years. Always hear patients complain in the waiting room but never experienced a problem personally until recently. Chad has always been great but Dr Spivey is different story. Waiting room has slowly emptied out over time to the point I doubt PPM will be in business much longer.
He talks over you and doesn't give you a chance to explain everything. When telling him about severe pain experiences he acts like he doesn't believe you and makes his determination based on your pain at that particular moment. You tell him your pain is so bad you need to miss work until it improves but he doesn't believe you ... he does not write you out for any period of time.
