Dr. Spears is a very straightforward doctor. He is very intelligent and has no time for BS or nonsense. He does spend time making sure you are aware of your options while also making sure you understand what is best. I wish all doctors were as honest as him. I felt completely safe in his hands, and have never doubted his diagnosis. He is also a very caring person, who takes a great pride in his work and his patients well being. He truly is in the right specialty!

Only waited about 10 to 15 minutes. Dr. Spears was very straight forward. He didn't beat around the bush. He told us exactly like it was and we appreciate that. Finally someone with honesty, Integrity and a doctor that won't put you through it if it isn't going to do anything to help you! I highly recommend him to anyone with spine/back issues. And although it wasn't what we wanted to hear at least we know what lies ahead.

My husband and I have each had 2 surgeries by Dr Spears. We could not be more pleased with the results. He's all business and isn't much interested in chatting, but when we listened without interupting, we found most all of our questions had been answered. We highly recommend Dr Spears to friends and family.
