My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

I believe in you not only as a patient but also as a friend. I feel that a patient should not be treated as a geriatric or middle aged patient. Patient care should be individualized to achieve maximum wellness and vibrancy. I feel too often patients are made to feel old before their time, i.e. geriatric. Health and vibrancy can be achieved at any age.

Although I treat all age groups – pediatric, young adult, adult, women’s health and geriatric medicine, my ultimate goal is to maximize your wellness. I have a special interest in preventive medicine and personalized healthcare. I feel that prevention is the key to continual well-being. Our wellness program/executive physical has been ranked in the top 10 nationally. I have been privileged and humbled to be named the top family physician by Lancaster County Magazine nine times.

I have been a practicing, board-certified family physician in Lancaster County for over thirty years and have patients from all areas of South Central Pennsylvania – including York, Harrisburg, Reading, Ephrata, Quarryville and Lititz.

I make routine house calls on my patients and I see my patients when they are in the hospital. A few of the hospitals where I advocate for my patients are Lancaster General Hospital, Heart of Lancaster Hospital and Lancaster Regional Hospital. I look forward to serving you and your family.

Testimonials from patients of Dr. Phillips

from Chris in PA March 21, 2020 for Spencer Phillips, MD, FAAFP

A few years ago, my son and I planned a trip to New York City. It was on Sunday morning when I woke up and sensed that something was wrong.
The night before when I got in bed, my lips felt sore and chapped, and were tingling. When I woke up, I had severe pain and itching on my hands. I wanted to go see Dr. Phillips in his office but I knew being that it was Sunday, he would be in church… See more

from Linda in PA March 12, 2020 for Spencer Phillips, MD, FAAFP

Dr. Phillips is so friendly, he puts me at ease as soon as he walks into the room. I am thankful for the way he keeps me (and family and friends) informed about current health issues. He is pro-active. Thank you so much for all you do.

from John and Anne in PA March 12, 2020 for Spencer Phillips, MD, FAAFP

Spencer gets things done fast and well.
From fast responses - including house calls- to arranging quick specialist referrals as needed, he and his office PA’s and nurses are very efficient and an absolute delight to work with.

from L Gene in PA March 11, 2020 for Spencer Phillips, MD, FAAFP

Dr. Spencer Philips is a one-of-a-kind. When he converted his practice to MDVIP, I didn't know what to expect. He has always been a caring doctor, but my experience has been so excellent. Soon after signing up with MDVIP, I had both knees replaced in a local hospital. Other than my family, he visited me more often in the hospital than anyone. More recently, through my bout with… See more

from Andrew in PA March 11, 2020 for Spencer Phillips, MD, FAAFP

About two years ago I woke up one morning lite-headed & not feeling good. After no marked improvement in the way I felt, I called Dr. Phillips' office requesting an appointment. They ask if I felt well enough to come over. Stating "yes" I was given an appointment immediately or as soon as I could get there. When I arrived I was told that the doctor and his family were on their annual… See more

from Carolyn in PA March 10, 2020 for Spencer Phillips, MD, FAAFP

Since joining the MDVIP practice of Dr. Spencer Phillips, I must admit to feeling like a member of his family. He is very accommodating and very thorough and takes pride in knowing his patients and treating his patients as he would a member of his own family. I have never had to wait for an appointment and once arriving for my appointment, am greeted by the staff in a friendly and caring… See more

from Gerry & Jeanne in PA March 16, 2018 for Spencer Phillips, MD, FAAFP

Dear Dr. Phillips, We are quite recent patients of yours, but we want you to know how much we appreciate knowing you are there for us 24/7. Thank you so much for working diligently to find help for Gerry's problem. We could not be happier about our health care.

from CATHERINE in PA March 9, 2018 for Spencer Phillips, MD, FAAFP

I WAS VERY IMPRESSED WITH MY FIRST MEETING WITH DR. PHILLIPS AND HIS OFFICE STAFF. IN THE FOLLOW UP APPOINTMENT HE WAS VERY THOROUGH IN GOING OVER MY TESTING RESULTS. HE EXPLAINED THE RESULTS IN TERMINOLOGY THAT I WAS ABLE TO COMPREHEND AND ANSWERED ALL MY QUESTIONS. I THINK I MADE AN EXCELLENT CHOICE IN CHOOOSING DR.PHILLIPS AS MY MDVIP PHYSICIAN.
