I am writing to apprise you of an outstanding and wonderful service that Dr. Phillips provided to my family. My 100 year old mother in law, who lives out of town, was staying with us while recovering from an illness. She had a band aid that remained after an IV that was causing discomfort and skin discoloration on her arm. I was concerned that removing it would cause her skin to be lifted… See more
My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...
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.

Two years ago I went to see Spencer Phillips for a self-diagnosed appendicitis. After he confirmed my ailment, he spoke with my insurance to get admission authorization and then drove me to the hospital to check me in. How many doctors would do that. Yea - I think he is the best.
I'm not one who feels it's necessary to write these flowery memos. These people are the ones that everyone should get a trophy for participating. My doctor knows me well having been a student at the high school where I taught. I will point out what type of professional individual Spencer Phillips is when it comes to being sincerely concerned about the health and well being of his… See more
Dr. Phillips has been phenomenal. He is truly on duty 24/7. Recently he saw me in his office on a Sunday to deal with a sudden infection. He is a skilled physician and really cares about his patients. I no longer hesitate to call for help.
Dr. Phillips exemplifies what family doctor truly means. In today's society, everything has become commoditized, even medical treatment. Dr. Phillips reminds his patients that there is still a personal touch to family practice where patients are more than quotas, they are friends and family. That says a lot and means a lot in a world full of daily impersonal transactions and interactions… See more
I have been through some extreamly serious health conditions in the last 2 years Dr Phillips and staff have made a tremendous and positive impact. I don't know what the outcome would have been without them. Their professional help was and is fantastic. I want to say THANK YOU SO MUCH!!
Doctor Phillips listens to what I have to say. When I was hospitalized he was there. When I call at any hour of the day or night he answers within a reasonable time. He takes the time to explain what is wrong with me and explains what other doctors are saying about my condition in words that I understand. That's important to me and my wife. Thank you Doctor Phillips.
having my Dr available is a great comfort for myself and husband. He listens to my issues and directs me of how to take good care of our health.
DR Phillips is a very caring person plus a wondeful physician. He is very important person in our life
I cannot say enough about our MDVIP Doctor, Dr. Spencer Phillips. His bedside manner, and passion for high level engagement in our care is quite amazing.
We have been in the MDVIP Program for six months, and our cost has been more than covered twice with the service that Dr. Phillips has provided. We avoided 3 ER visits on Weekends, as there was never an option before. Those three ER… See more
