Dr. Spencer completed a three-year medical and surgical foot and ankle residency training in Aventura, FL, where he served as Chief Resident. He is board certified by the American Board of Podiatric Medicine.
Dr. Spencer believes in treating the whole patient and understands that physical, mental, and emotional health plays a vital role in both the pathologic and healing processes. He is interested in creating personalized treatment plans for acute and chronic foot and ankle injuries with conservative, non-surgical approaches.
This includes education on the cause of pain, the intended effect of available treatment options, and the utilization of custom orthotics and regenerative modalities, such as injectable biologics, laser therapy, and shockwave therapy. In some cases, a simple office-based procedure may also be offered.
Dr. Spencer is also interested in treating skin conditions, such as fungal nails. He takes a keen interest in his patients and is always ready to hear a good story.
In his free time, Dr. Spencer enjoys outdoor adventures, usually involving a good espresso drink, good music, and a countryside drive while in search of a watering hole for his dogs. He also enjoys gardening, cooking, hiking, foraging mushrooms, kayaking, puzzles, playing golf, and watching the Kansas Jayhawks.
