At times I feel as though she is rushed or I am just another appointment. I don't think she intends to make me feel that well.

Loved how straight to the point she was and knew my allergies when prescribing.

Dr. Spence did not examine me, she came into the room and talked to me, prescribed antibiotics and sent me on my way. I expected to, at the very least, have her listen to my chest (I had reported concerns of heavy chest feeling when breathing), my heart and to look in my ears, nose and throat. Dr. Spence did not of the above, she spoke to me and told me that if I continue to use antibiotics at the frequency I am there will be risk to the balance of healthy bacteria in my stomach. I am appalled that she did not examine me at all, that is a first for me in my years of going to doctors. This was by far my worst experience with a doctor, even worse than one I had that did not understand English at [...].

Dr. Spence is excellent! I have complete confidence in her.

What I like about Dr. Spence is that she really listens to you and cares about your health. I never feel rushed and always feel comfortable asking her any questions. She is always cheerful, thorough, and very professional. She is the best doctor I have ever had and I recommend her often to others.

Dr. Jennifer Spence is amazing. Intelligent, compassionate, diligent and I have referred her to many of my friends.

M.D. Spence was amazing!
