Dr Spencer is excellent!
Dr Spencer has been my pulmonologist for several years. I had a cough, Lung nodules and enlarged lymph nodes in the lungs. He made sure to order many different labs and tests. He recommended his partner Dr. Hopkins to do the lymph node biopsy and Dr. Hopkins successfully retrieved the tissues that were needed. A different pulmonologist with a different group was unsuccessful at this task previously. Dr. Spencer always takes the time to explain the test results, he explains the CT scan results and make sure the nodules are stable or whether I need treatment. His bedside manner is excellent and I have never had to wait very long to get into his office. I see him in Omaha, not Lincoln. I would highly recommend Dr. Spencer.

Telehealth visit
Telehealth visit was amazing! So much better than going into the office. Staff called ahead of time to get medical history and wasn’t rushed at all. Visit started exactly on time. Dr. Spencer explained things well. He asked several times if I had any questions and if what he said made sense. Appreciated his expertise and advice!

He reads sleep-study results. He sent a report to the respiratory company that didn't meet Medicare standards. He REFUSED to add something to that report so that I could get the equipment I desperately needed. What happened to do no harm?
