I have been working with Dr. Spurgeon for just over 6 months to find a treatment plan for my neck pain. Though we haven't found the treatment that works for me just yet, he has been such a blessing to me on this journey. I am not necessarily the "easiest" patient. I have several medications I won't take for personal reasons. The source of my pain has ambiguous origins. I have been difficult to treat, and where other doctors have thrown anxiety medications and shooed me out the door, he has been patient, has listened to me, and has believed the pain I am feeling is real. Before him I saw countless doctors who left me feeling, for the large part, pretty hopeless about my health circumstances. He is an excellent listener, has an excellent "bed side manner," and is creative and relentless about finding treatment options that will work for me. He is a true breath of fresh air after many encounters with doctors whom I felt wrote me off. I know we will find something that works for me sooner or later. Hopefully it's sooner, but I am so grateful for his care over this past 6 months. I trust him with my health and would, without any hesitation, recommend him to anyone experiencing pain.
