  • Dr. Spann was amazing. I was very anxious going into the visit and I have a tendency to have "White Coat Syndrome". The visit was very open and conversational. He was interested in my views for my plan of care and took those into consideration. I could see that he wanted my buy in since I would be the biggest instrument in my own success.
