I often feel rushed or that the doctor’s time is rushed. Dr. Spencer is excellent at reviewing things and asking questions. He’s great about answering my questions as well but sometimes if I make him aware of something new that I’m experiencing, the protocol seems to be that I need to make a new appointment to address the new ailment unless it’s pertinent to the current appointment. Other than that I have absolutely no concerns or complaints. I truly enjoy meeting with my doctor and his support staff. Really good people.
