Hi I’m Dr. Spencer, and I am the Doc Who Lifts!
Our medical system is broken. We are pushed to see more and more patients per day, which leads us to push prescription medicines onto our patients before using lifestyle.
I use exercise and nutrition to help my patients get lean and reverse their medical issues like high blood sugar and pressure before reaching for the prescription pad (if possible).
I am a board certified family and obesity medicine physician. I used my passion of exercise and nutrition science to propel me in athletics. While studying exercise science and pre-med, I wrestled heavyweight for the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill (Tar Heels) and did pretty well.

After college, I decided to pursue a medical degree at Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine (Virginia Tech Campus) to spread the idea of nutrition and exercise as medicine. My residency training was done through the VCU-Riverside Family Medicine program in Newport News where I was able to hone my skills further. I then studied and specialized in Obesity Medicine.
Right now I work in a clinic in Olney, Maryland where I get my patients exercising and eating better. Sometimes I even work out with them. I also run an online coaching program for those who cannot see me in the clinic.
Other than medicine, I am married to a beautiful pediatric resident doctor, who I met during medical school (Jenna – or as I call her – “Sweet Pea”).
Our hobbies are lifting, cooking, and taking long walks after meals while we vent about work. Right now my only other endeavor is that I am giving a shot at doing a triathlon (I did a bodybuilding show last year) so I will likely be posting my updates along the way. If you have any questions, feel free to go to the contact me page.
My Goal is to Show Everyone That Lifestyle IS Medicine
People call me “The Doc Who Lifts,” because I am extremely passionate about using exercise as medicine for my patients and because I work out a lot myself (I actually lift).
I personally believe we should be pushing lifestyle as medicine harder instead of automatically reaching for the prescription pad. If follow me, you’ll learn the most up to date information on how to live the healthiest life while looking your best. This same information is given to my patients and I want to spread it to the world.
