Biography & Education

I like to partner with my patients to help them make decisions about their health care. By using current research that applies to the situation my patients can have the best information to make those decisions. Our office offers multiple options for alternative medicine providers who work as a team with me to provide my patients the best comprehensive care.

Patient Ratings and Comments
About Our Survey

The Patient Rating score is based on responses given during the CAHPS Patient Experience Survey. Responses are measured on a 10-point scale, with 10 being the best score. These scores are then translated to a 5-point scale in order to display results in a 5-star rating. Comments are also gathered from the same survey and displayed in their entirety with the exception of any language that may be considered slander, libel or contain private health information, which will be removed prior to publishing the comments.

Dr. Jennifer Spence is my primary care doctor and is excellent in all fields.
Swedish Patient

Doctor did not ask is there anything that is bothering you? She didn't want to hear any new issues and told me I have to come back another time.
Swedish Patient

YES, we even discussed my recent cataract surgery and the need for me to have annual eye checks with my ophthalmologist. She always demonstrates that she cares for me a whole person. [...]
Swedish Patient

There is a quality spectrum for physicians that spans from uncaring and clinical to almost like a member of your family. Dr. Spence is at the later end.
Swedish Patient

I liked the fact that the provider was not just focused on the symptoms and suggesting medication right away as the first option but tried to gain an overall picture to suggest possible alternatives.
Swedish Patient

Dr. Spence is fabulous!
Swedish Patient

From the moment she stepped in, I felt I was seen as the stupid kid [...] She used a sarcastic tone and language implying that I did not do my research and did not fully listen to my answer before passing judgement. I make choices in my life for a reason and after much contemplation. She did not give me the time of day to make this clear to her. Very rude, unprofessional, and unkind. I will never see this woman again and will be sure not to recommend her to anyone else.
Swedish Patient

I brag about how good my Dr. is whenever anyone complains about their Dr. and I'm grateful to have such great care. I live in Bothell and drive to Issaquah just so my kids and myself can be cared for by Dr. Spence. I'm pretty sure that sums it up.
Swedish Patient

Dr Spence and her staff [...] are fabulous. I trust them explicitly. They are always there to answer my questions and I highly recommend them.
Swedish Patient

Dr. Spence and her staff are superior in every respect.
Swedish Patient

She's the best!
Swedish Patient

Dr. Spence is wonderful and highly knowledgeable. I feel very lucky to have her as our primary physician. I did not get a call back for test results, but was notified when they were available on MyChart. I very much prefer MyChart to a phone call and this was great response time for me.
