From Dr. Spearman: “I’m passionate about making a difference in someone’s life, which has a different meaning for every patient I meet. One day may afford an opportunity to remove a pre-cancerous polyp in one patient, while a chance to simply listen and offer advice or reassurance may be therapeutic for another patient.” Dr. Spearman's rapport with his patients, his medical knowledge and his dedication as a doctor contribute to his popularity with patients and members of his medical team. Outside of medicine, he enjoys spending time with his family, scuba diving, running, and cheering for his favorite college football team – the Clemson Tigers.
