Verified Patient Reviews
Dr. Spear is honest, efficient and caring. Highly recommend!
I used a minor illness as an excuse to "test drive" a new doctor, since my old doctor at another provider had moved away. I'm favorably impressed with the new IU Health. Can't speak to the dollar-value of the service until I see the bill, and in my experience that can take several weeks to appear. But for the time being, I'm pleased. I also like that IU has notices posted all over the walls, expressing a desire to not surprise patients with the size of their bills, and to try to be transparent on pricing.
He and a medical student saw me, and they were very attentive! He did a good job of addressing each issue individually, as well as my health as a whole.
Excellent. Would highly recommend
The first time I saw him I was not sure I felt comfortable with his bedside manner and considered finding a different doctor. However, due to not having been to a doctor in a few years, I had several concerns which he rightfully was hesitant to immediate treat without further diagnostic information. Once I was able to obtain that, he was very warm and willing to discuss with me the details of my treatment and worked with me and my concerns and preferences.
Met expectations and great bedside manner. Is now my primary physician
I chose Dr. Spear because of his emphasis on prevention and nutrition. We share the same philosophy. I liked him a great deal and I know he'll be thrilled if I don't have to see him again for a year! Very positive experience!
Professional staff, clean location, positive atmosphere
He was very professional since it was my first visit with him. All during the appointment, he was a good listener but handling me with the focus that a doctor should do. Time is limited and so important and he wastes none. Highly recommended as your primary physician..
Outstanding. Answered all of my questions. He knows how to listen. I appreciate this trait in a physician. He is articulate in discussing options.
Office is located at the corner of 146th and Hazeldel. I mention this because the address is new, and shows it on a map several blocks up the road no where near the office. Office staff was kind and prompt. Doc was great, and felt very comfortable.
I appreciated his listening to how I was feeling and not just statistics or what the average normal person should be feeling.
Dr Spear is thorough, caring, and makes you feel like you're the only one he's seeing. I feel he is competent and doesn't just tell me what he thinks I want to hear. He takes time to get to know a person.
Awesome. He is caring and always listen.
It served its purpose.
Dr. Spear listened to what I had to say. This was my first visit and I liked him.
Dr Spear is good doctor. Booked online appointment and now he is my primary doc. Comfortable and easy going!
Has horrible bedside manner
Doesn't listen to your problems and very short with the visit didn't spend a lot of time for a new patient bed side manner was awful would not recommend him he told me he only had 30 mins to spend with me so what could he do for me
Really good interaction. He was personable, careful, efficient
Great first visit with Dr Spear. He took time to listen to my concerns and implemented a plan to get to the bottom of what is going on with my body. Personally called me back within hours of my appointment with blood test results and next steps.
Dr Spear listened and ask pertinent questions about my health. He takes a long hard look at the overall picture before jumping to a conclusion.
I am a new patient of Dr. Spear and IU Health. My first visit was a good one. I found the Doctor easy to talk to and felt comfortable with him.
Dr. Spear was very friendly and polite. Seemed to be intelligent and the appointment went very well.
