Dr Splenser took the time to ask about all my health issues, not just endocrine related issues. He emphasized taking care of all of me...not just thyroid problems.

I was a new patient and am SO glad I found Dr Splenser. I don't think I've ever had a doctor listen so well, or felt like they took me and my issues more seriously than Dr Splenser did. He was kind, attentive and I really felt like I was getting fantastic care and on a path toward feeling much better. Office staff as well as the phlebotomist were friendly and prompt. Again, I'm just so pleased I found this office.

It was wonderful to meet someone so friendly and actually interacting with you in a friendly and nice manner. I had the pleasure of him explaining me well and made sure to ask me from every angle. I'm glad I went to him and he checked for things I didn't know and I found out what was really wrong with me and not what others had been treating me for. I'm so glad.

Dr Splencer has a wonderful energy about him and is very personable. He asked lots of questions but never jumped to conclusion and was very thorough in is examination. I also liked that he is budget conscious with his recommendations in medication and listened to my observations and provided his own feedback in response with clear explanations for everything. His staff was pleasant and courteous. Although I did have a minor hiccup with my lab form missing some coding and because of it had to reschedule to do it another day.

My first visit was amazing. He welcomed me with open arms and a very kind manner. Very caring and understanding. Listened to everything I had to say. Helped in every aspect during my visit. He went out of his way to make sure my prescriptions were sent and that I had a copy of each to take with me, just in case. So glad I found Dr. Splenser.

Dr Splenser answered all of my questions and was very thorough. I was seen very promptly and the doctor spent enough time with me so that I didn't feel rushed or that I was taking up too much time with my concerns. I've already recommended that my husband see Dr Splenser. And would recommend him to my friends as well.

i really enjoy my visit with the doctor today. A few things, they want new pts in their office 45 mins before the appointment or 30 mins if you have your paperwork filed out early. You can find the form on their website. When finding the place, you would think that memorial office building 3 would be in the same area as all the office, but no, it actually on beechnut, so no need to get into the southwest memorial haze. i waited about 15mins to see the doc. Dr. Splenser is really personable. While i was waiting i can hear him talking in spanish to someone outside, and he sounded very friendly. And when i met him he was.. He likes a through background on your health, as all specialist should do. After doing what he needs to do, he comes with him a plan. We will see what happens as time goes. Overall, i enjoyed my visit.

This was my first visit with Dr. Splenser and it will not be my last. My favorite part of my appointment was when he said he like to get to know his patience before he started my evaluation. But the best part was the bedside mannor and the overall service.

Dr Splenser genuinely cared to help me find the root of my problems even when we ruled out every cause within his scope of care. He was extremely knowledgeable, took the time to explain in detail the details of what can cause symptoms I had, and recommended several next steps as options to pursue to resolve my issues.

Dr. Splenser himself is a very cheerful doctor with good "bedside manners". I felt very comfortable with him and our dialogue. Unfortunately, we got started one hour after our scheduled appointment (to be fair, I did arrive 12 minutes late mostly due to difficulty in finding parking and the building). So overall I did not enjoy the experience. What would take this up a few stars is two things: - NO paperwork, and I mean zero (electronic is okay if it can be done in advance) - Provide specific directions on how to find the building. It is close to a HUGE medical complex and it is very difficult to locate exactly how to get to the building and associated parking just by punching in the address.

Dr Splenser is very knowledgable with an awesome manner. He listened to what it was I had to say and seemingly understood every symptom and put me at ease, which was so refreshing after a year of being undiagnosed, misunderstood and on the defense- just fighting to be heard, let alone treated. Dr Splenser is heaven sent right along with my neurologist Dr. Evans, who's also heaven sent. The nurse assistant here was very helpful and nice as well, she has a very calm manner. Highly recommended.
