Very Good treatment

Dr. Spangler performed an ASDF at Midwest Surgical Hospital. I had initially seen multiple providers so I knew going to her would probably end up in surgery as I had done the PT and Steroid Injections. On the initial appointment she did a thorough exam and was concerned my MRI didn't show what my symptoms were showing. She ordered additional xrays which determined I had progressed to the point of needing surgery. The day of the surgery she came in and explained what she was doing again and put me at ease. The staff at Midwest Surgical Hospital is awesome! She stopped by later that day to check up on me (after the anesthesia had worn off) and ensured if I needed anything after I left to call her office. I spent the night and she came in the next morning early to check on me and discharge me. She reiterated my limitations and stressed to call her if there were any problems. Minimal post operative issues and I'm post surgery a week.

Dr. Spangler was kind and curtious to me and my husband. She understood my pain and I received care within a week she did my surgery. After surgery care was important to her too. All my calls were answred right away. I would recommend her to family and friends.
