What People Say About Dr. John Spear, MD
Reply
Found him to be very kind and caring. Listened better than most doctors and showed genuine concern. Not as happy with the staff as I called for an appointment due to abdominal pain. I had to wait 11 days to get appointment to see Dr. I asked, That long? Even if I'm in pain. I was told by staff We are not a walk in clinic. Told the Doctor this at my appointment and he said, Yes, we kind of are if you are in pain.
