About Me

Spencer C. Knox, MD

I am a double-board certified (ABIM Internal Medicine and Gastroenterology) physician specializing in the practice of Gastroenterology in Fleming Island, Florida. A 2021 graduate of the University of Massachusetts Medical School-Baystate Medical Center (Springfield, MA), I see patients with esophageal, gastric (stomach), small intestinal, colorectal, liver, biliary, and pancreatic pathology. Prior to fellowship, I completed Internal Medicine residency training at Orlando Regional Medical Center (Orlando, FL), Orlando Health’s flagship 808-bed tertiary referral center. 

I graduated as a member of the Alpha Omega Phi Honor and Service Society from American University of the Caribbean School of Medicine (AUC), earning my MD in December 2014.

My goal is to provide evidence-based, up-to-date, and practical medical care for patients seeking evaluation and management of gastroenterological disorders. These include, but are not limited to, inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) such as UC and Crohn disease, swallowing difficulties (dysphagia), GERD/acid reflux, pancreaticobiliary and liver disease, colon and rectal cancer screening, with a special interest in celiac disease. General gastroenterological care, including treating acute disorders in the hospital setting, are also focal points. As an aside, I am always looking for new ways to improve care including the role of artificial intelligence (AI) as it applies to clinical gastroenterology.
