Dr. Spickard is not only caring and compassionate but also a very good listener. He always takes into consideration my thoughts, my concerns and considers my opinions. He makes well thought out, medically sound decisions about my care. Whenever I message him at, he promptly responds. He is an excellent, skilled physician as well as an excellent diagnostician. Vanderbilt is very fortunate to have him.

Dr. Spickard is one of the most competent, most decent men I know.
Patient | June 14, 2016

I felt that the MD was in a hurry and didn't really care about my issue. It's happened the last 3-4 visits. No concern. Just in and out of the room. I feel personally like this is very common in the medical world. Most MD's are the same.
Patient | June 1, 2016

Outstanding doctor who is so conscientious caring & intelligent. How blessed my husband and I have been to have him as our dr. for over 20 years. He has saved my husband's life multiple times. We HIGHLY recommend him.
Patient | April 28, 2016

His nurse Becky was also a delight in greeting me and preparing me for the appointment Beyond that, Dr. Spikard is such a quality guy and relatable to those he treats. I can see why and how people enjoy him as a physician. Going beyond Dr. Spikard's care, attention, and demeanor, his office was efficient. I had scheduled my appointment for 3pm with an eye appointment to follow at 5:30pm, uncertain what was realistic at the physician appointment. Dr. Spikard and his staff had me in and out in less than 45 minutes! Was greatly impressed with the efficiency
