My wife and I are so grateful to Dr. Spear for his exceptional care of me for my multiple cardiovascular diseases and related diseases. He gives us hope and cheer despite clearly outlining, ever so compassionately, the scope and serious nature of my diagnoses. Dr. Spear takes as much time as is needed to answer all of our questions and fully explain everything. Only one other doctor in my entire life's experience - for me or for the care of others I've known - has come close to Dr. Spear.

One new cardiologist I saw after 21 years of treatment said I didn't have a heart problem -just heartburn. In 2016, Dr. Spear examined me with stethoscope and blood pressure cuff, and after about 10 minutes said to me:"we've got a lot of work ahead of us, but we going to take care of you." Within a few days he verified multiple cardiovascular problems through an angiogram, and found even more problems through a holter exam, and continues to monitor and adjust my care. Dr. Spear is the best!

At a pretty scary time in my life having something wrong with my heart, I was referred to Dr. Spear. I have never had such a negative and unprofessional experience with a physician like I did was Dr.. Spear. He literally sat there and said "hmmm" about five times to my husband and I and then said "I don't know what to tell you." I would never recommend this doctor to anyone.

Dr. Spear has always put his whole effort into treating my conditions. While I am a tricky patient due to my health I feel he is always reaching as far and wide as he can to treat me as a whole picture. You can always see the wheels spinning at warp speed. I have recommended him many times and will continue to do so. I have great trust for Dr. Spear as a Cardiologist!

I would recommend Dr. Spear for his care during a medically induced stress test at the Willamette Valley Hospital in McMinnville. He explained what was going to happen, talked about it during the test, kept me informed of how much longer the test would take and then discussed the results. I felt very comfortable with him (and the whole team) and trusted his ability in conducting the test.
