July 24, 2014

I live in Salt Lake city and I was very happy with Michele Spencer and the excellent care I received from her. However, I decided to find a Dr. closer to my home, I was most dissatisfied with the care I received from my new Dr. and decided that I would much rather make the effort to drive to Redwood and consult with Michelle Spencer than continue being frustrated with the lack of care I was receiving. I wish I had never made the change in the first place.

July 22, 2014

She is the best.

July 22, 2014

I was treated with utmost respect and courtesy.

July 07, 2014

Dr. Spencer and the others who assisted me once I was in the exam room were quite helpful and very courteous.

March 27, 2014

only down fall of my visit was him prescribing me the correct antibiotic. he was unsure as to which one, which made me feel unsure. I was pleased he was able to find the mistake on my blood test I had a week ago. As frustrating as it is to have to get blood drawn again and redo those same test, I'm glad he found it.

March 13, 2014

My care provider is great! She takes the time to tell me about my bunions (which I take little attention) and recommends something for it. She follows up on my preventive measures and answers all my concerns.

February 22, 2014

I was never told what to expect in the healing process, how to care for my injury or when to have my sutures removed. Other than that she was wonderful.

January 16, 2014

All were very helpful and kept a good eye on me. I feel I almost passed out at one moment and all were right there to help me with my breathing and calm me down. I felt all were concerned for me.

Michelle is always caring and explains everything in detail.

October 29, 2013

dr makes you fill ther is no hurry on their part. makes you fill at ease. unlike the university hosp. which is a shit hole in my opinion. redwood road clinic good place to go if you are sick.

October 28, 2013

I have been seeing Michelle Spencer for a number of years. I have been having pain in my right hip. I have seen an orthopedic specialist, had a MRI, physical therapy and other test. While they can't exactly pinpoint the problem they will refuse to address the issue of pain. It takes weeks to get in the pain clinic and being involved with our care is always what they ask but they refuse to address the fact that I need something for breakthrough pain. Pain management is part of patient care.

October 15, 2013

Have had Michelle as my Physician for many years now

October 15, 2013

I feel safe with Michelle, and she is very willing to listen to my concerns. She is very knowledgeable, and answers every question in an understandable way, and never makes me feel uncomfortable.

October 14, 2013

its always good

October 03, 2013

Dr. Spencer, in my eyes, is a very good doctor and fills you in on everything that she knows from the test that you have taken, though I feel great, I know that we should take the test at least once a year to make sure that every thing is still good.

September 27, 2013

September 25, 2013

I dont have confidence in any other provider besides michelle spencer and I refuse to see anyone else, michelle is the best

August 13, 2013

I love Michelle. She has been my provider for years and I love going to her

August 13, 2013

More timewith patients

August 12, 2013

Ms Spencer has always treated me well and tried to set my anxious heart at ease. I chose a female provider for the very traits Ms Spencer has and that is a genuine caring and proffesional attitude and really cares about me as an individual not just as amother patient.

August 06, 2013

we love Michelle Spencer. she takes her time to answer all our questions. and is concerned for the entire family not just the patient. we are very blessed to have her.

August 06, 2013

Time spent with provider seems so short compared to waiting time.

August 05, 2013

Michelle is the only provider I will see she is a smart provider and lets me know right away about my labs, etc. I have alot of confidence and faith in her

July 29, 2013

Don't remember the doctor's name, but she seemed more interested in NOT prescribing pain pills than helping me. I had glass in my foot. I walked around with it for several days after my visit. The doctor didn't seem very interested in actually finding the glass.

July 23, 2013

Michelle has always been thorough, efficient and generous with her time.

July 22, 2013

July 03, 2013

michelle Spencer was a very through provider and would recommend her to any one

July 01, 2013

Michelle Spencer was wonderful as always. I appreciated that she had me set up My Chart and that I could email her for any follow-up.

June 04, 2013

I like that I can view my charts online. My husband and I travel allot and he is diabetic. If he needed medical attention while traveling its good to know that he will be able to pull up his records online. We are new to salt lake so I'm glad that we have found our primary care providers so easily.

June 04, 2013

Michelle is the BEST my kids feel very comfortable with her and we would never go anywhere else!

June 04, 2013

She is why I keep coming to this location

June 04, 2013

I tell everyone about Michelle she is the BEST!!!

June 03, 2013

a little patronizing, rolled her eyes, implied that I was trying to extend my vacation with illness (developed a rash while returning from 16 day trip to Peru and Equador). She did reassure me that the rash did not appear infectious which was the reason for my visit before returning to my health care job.

May 28, 2013

Michelle Spencer is very compatent and caring. She continues to be up to date on new research and shared concerns and suggestions. I will recommend her to my friends and family.

May 24, 2013

Ms. Spencer is so good at taking excellent care of me, often asking "back ground" questions that stimulate further discussion about me and my health. She is very easy to understand, knowledgable and yet did not run me over with technical stuff. I like her, and have chosen Ms. Spenser as my PCP.

May 17, 2013

I really like my doctor, she asks a lot of questions to get to the root of the problem and provides a number of options for my treatment.

May 17, 2013

Good

May 15, 2013

Michelle is very easy to talk to she isn't condesending or rushed. I feel she really listens and doesn't just say "take this pill" she finds different solutions if any.

May 13, 2013

When i first went to see Dr. Spencer i was very nervous, but she makes you feel good and talks to you to make you feel comfortable, and i have been going to her for a couple of years now, shes great.

May 10, 2013

She was supposed to call me Wednesday with the results of the strep test. It's now Friday and I haven't heard anything. I guess she forgot.

April 29, 2013

good

April 22, 2013

within the last month I have recommended my health care provider to others.

April 15, 2013

I sometimes feel that I'm not being listened to or taken seriously

April 08, 2013

I THINK I WAS GIVEN GOOD CARE. I FELT HAPPY ABOUT IT.

April 01, 2013

Good

March 11, 2013

Michelle Spencer is one of the best health care providers I have been to. I have been looking for a health care person I feel comfortable with and someone who actually listens and doesn't just give me a pill to take. Michelle has been that person for me.

March 01, 2013

GREAT P.A.

February 24, 2013

February 01, 2013

January 29, 2013

She's very friendly and I feel she cares a great deal about my health.

December 27, 2012

I was very apprehensive in returning to the Redwood office, for my previous visit had been very disturbing. Ms. Spencer was the antithesis of the previous care provider! She was warm, approachable, compassionate, and had a pleasant bed-side manner. I will request her from now on when ever possible!

December 03, 2012

Very very pleased with all staff

November 20, 2012

Michelle Spencer is awesome!

I have referred Michelle Spencer many times before. My family has gone to her for many years. I have always been impressed with how she spends time with her patients, her concern and her knowledge.

October 01, 2012

Josie was very nice, listened carefully. So did Michelle. I would recommend them without hesitation.

September 28, 2012

MICHELLE IS VERY GOOD AND HAS A GREAT BEDSIDE MANNER AND IS ALWAYS WILLING TO ANSWER QUESTIONS

September 16, 2012

very good experience.

September 15, 2012

This was the first time I had seen Michelle Spencer. I thought she was very good.

August 30, 2012

It is difficult to describe, but my overall feeling was that the care provider was being insincere and superficial..

August 28, 2012

Michelle Spencer is the best. I moved to Davis county, but I still continue to see Michelle when I need a doctor.

August 20, 2012

Michelle Spencer is not my regular doctor but she inspired confidence and took care of the problem.

August 14, 2012

Michelle Spencer was very thorough with the exam and diagnosis. I would certainly recommend her to others if they were in need of a health care provider.

July 27, 2012

She was very nice and made me feel comfortable. She completely made up for the time I had to wait and the assistant who was in there earlier. I have been to see 2 other Doctor's there and I would not go back to them but I will go back to her.

July 17, 2012

im okay with my doctor

July 13, 2012

I have been using Michelle Spencer NP for over 10 years now and wouldn't go anywhere else if I have the choice! She must take great notes as well because she always remembers who I am, that I am married to Paul, have 3 kids and she even asks about my Mom

July 10, 2012

I had felt like I'm at home. that is so nice of them.

July 08, 2012

I waited a long time and she spent 5 min and told me it was viral. Went to another Dr. 2 days later said it was infection and got me on meds.

June 08, 2012

I come from out of state for my health care. I really really feel Michelle takes time to make sure I am healthy and doing well. I like all of the U of U network.

June 04, 2012

Michelle is so caring and we will NEVER go to another provider!!!!!

June 03, 2012

I would recommend Dr. Spencer to any of my families and friend.

May 05, 2012

Dr. Michelle Spencer had a great deal of knowledge about assisting me on my reason for coming in however, we didn't complete the physicial as I wanted blood taken and any other necessary medical checks. I felt as though Dr. Spencer had many other patients at the same time which is good because she is a good Doctor and that is a good indictor but, when I scheduled an appointment with a care provider for the first time I specifically asked for a care provider that is less busy then most this didn't seem to be case with Dr. Spencer.

April 25, 2012

I was a bit hesitant going to a different health care provider than Dr. Thomas, but Michelle Spencer was so fantastic. I also appreciated that she informed my primary care doctor with the information of the visit and Dr. Thomas followed up with me.

April 14, 2012

Michelle Spencer is great, I have been avoided going to the Dr for a while, and she made it very easy to be able to return and makes you feel comfort

April 13, 2012

This was not my regular doctor. I was unable to get an appointment with my doctor and I was a little apprehensive about going to the NP that was recommended for my treatment. She was very nice however and I think was very competent.

March 17, 2012

Doctor Spencer is wonderful, she's very personable. She made me laugh in an uncomfortable situation.

March 15, 2012

She was great!! I have been avoiding going in for a few months, and she made me feel at ease. she is a great Provider

March 08, 2012

I have alot of faith in Michelle Spencer NP, I feel my kids dont get better unless we come into clinic to see her for healing. She is the best and thorough provider.

March 06, 2012

I really appreciate Dr. Spencer's care for my daughter & accomodating my clan in the exam room.

February 11, 2012

Michelle is awesome and I will keep coming back to see her. She is very good at asking the right questions and truly caring about her patient. She explained the condition i was in and the medications very well, she also gave me great advice on how to prevent this in the future. She ROCKS!
