    When I first met doctor spomar he told me straight up what was wrong and what could happen if I didn't go through with surgery. I appreciate honest answers in serious situations. His approach and sincerity were truly genuine. I have recovered very well and am looking for a full recovery. I highly recommend him. Right before they took me to surgery doctor spomar saw my anxiety and fear of what was to come and asked me if he could say a prayer for me. God worked thru him and I was ready. The best
