Dan Spearman, M.D.
I’d like to be known as a person who not only understands medicine but also can relate to people on a level they are comfortable with. This means listening to my patients’ thoughts and concerns before offering my own opinion. It also means caring for my patients as I would my own family.
My own children are all grown, and my wife and I are proud grandparents. I’m a beach lover and an ex-surfer, so I always enjoy heading to the beach with my grandkids. At home, I like spending time with the three dogs that my wife and I rescued.
Although I’ve been practicing for more than three decades, some aspects of my philosophy of care have remained unchanged. I compare preventive medicine to using a seat belt. It ensures the safety and well-being of my patients, and it’s going to be the key to the success of pediatrics in the 21st century.
