“The better part of most diagnoses can be made by listening to the patient, asking the right questions and getting a good history. This takes time,” said Dr. Spiers. “At PartnerMD, patients have time to tell their stories and we have time to work together to address their needs.”
Dr. Spiers received his bachelor’s and medical degrees from the University of Virginia in 1982. He completed his residency at the University of South Carolina’s Richland Memorial Hospital. Dr. Spiers was assistant clinical professor of family medicine and chairman of the Graduate Medical Education Committee at the Bon Secours Richmond’s Blackstone Family Practice Residency Program from 2002-2004.
Prior to joining PartnerMD in May 2006, Dr. Spiers was chairman of the departments of family practice at both Saint Mary’s Hospital and Henrico Doctors Hospital. For 10 years, he chaired the committee at St. Mary’s Hospital overseeing the quality of care and patient safety. Dr. Spiers was an on-air commentator for health issues on ABC’s “Good Morning, Columbia” in South Carolina and on Richmond’s WTVR-6 “Health Team 6” in the 80s and 90s.
Dr. Spiers lives in Richmond, Va., with his wife and has three grown children. His interests include hiking, history and journalism
