After many visits to doctors to find out what was wrong with my feet and why I kept having constant foot pain we finally were referred to Boston Childrens Hospital. Dr Spencer is highly trained and after an exam which included xrays and ct scans she concluded that I had tarsal coalition.I had a severe case, and she recommended surgery. After months of recovering from the surgery I was able to be active again and play sports. I am very happy that I got the surgery because I have lots of relief.

My daughter had an appointment today at Children's Hospital with Dr. Spencer. After waiting for 4 1/2 hours we were informed that she had left the floor and we would have to go to another area to be seen. Except, we were told it could be much longer plus that was no guarantee that we would be seen. We had traveled from a distance for the appointment. We were told that the doctor was overbooked.

Dr. Spencer may be an intelligent physician capable of ascertaining an accurate diagnosis and providing appropriate care but she lacks in being able to articulate her prognosis and the appropriate next steps to her patients in an effective manner. So much of being an effective physician, especially to children is to be able to communicate with both the kids and the parents. More work to be done on that front doc!
