Operated on my right pinky for duputryns contracture and the surgery never healed and had to get plastic surgery. Pinky is now contracted worse than before. He is a HORRIBLE doctor.

No. I’m not recommend Dr. Spencer. Is the worst Dr. I have seen in my life. Is very rude, not care about the patient. On May 2017, he did a cirurgia on my wrist, when was NOT NECESSARY!!! Since then, I’m in pain on my wrist, fingers numb, pain on my arm, shoulder and neck UNTIL NOW, and going to a different doctors, but no help either! So I was ok for a week with a cast the orthopedic specialist at emergency put, telling me I don’t need cirurgia! Only have to go take another X-ray after a week.

Dr. Spencer was on a list of recommended Orthopedists from the Urgent Care when my daughter fractured her fibula so we went to him because he was the only one who could see us the next day. His recommended treatment of my daughter's injury was all wrong. My wife and I had an uneasy feeling about his treatment and saw another Orthopedist. Sure enough the new doctor was surprised by the course of treatment taken by Dr. Spencer. Also Dr. Spencer's bedside manners was a hit and miss.

Dr. Spencer Performed surgery to fix my son's broken hand.He was actually scheduled to have surgery done by another Dr in 10 days.While visiting Dr, spencer for a follow up for a shoulder injury he saw my sons cast and decided to take X-rays. He advised that my son have surgery ASAP and not wait the 10 days.We took his advice and he scheduled surgery for that week.His hand was good as new in a few weeks ready for Baseball season.Hand has been broken 2x since then and we only trust Dr Spencer.
