Review of Dr. Spann

-

I've been seeing Dr. Spann for over a decade, through two extensive back surgeries. He has always listened to my symptoms and needs, and done his best to improve my quality of life. He is responsive, and genuinely cares about improving my situation.

Review of Dr. Spann

- in Austin, TX |

Results: successful 12-mo. check-up after minimally invasive lower lumbar fusion (three incisions, titanium rods and screws), the second fusion Dr. Spann & his crack team performed on me over the last 2 yrs. Prior to the surgery, I had extreme pain (unable to walk from sciatic pain, "recliner-ridden" for 4 wks). Dr. Spann provided options, straightforward analysis & reassurance. I expected top-notch diagnostic/surgical care, & got it. Up & walking without pain the day of surgery, brisk recovery (stick with the PT: ATI staff in the same office were brilliant). What I didn't have any reason to expect was the personal commitment by Dr. Spann, his ass't Amy (can't remember her last name), and his phenomenal PA-C, Joseph Hagen. This team was available 24/7 (especially Joseph) prior to the surgery & post, advocating for me w/ insurance, fine-tuning meds in the meantime, and checking in with real interest for 12 mo of follow-up. Team & front office were supportive, professional, competent.

Review of Dr. Spann

-

My husband had surgery for Osteomylitis and diskitis which destroyed his disk. It was caused from an infection. Another Doctor performed the first surgery and it failed. The first Doctor told him to go home for complete bedrest for 2 to 4 months. After one we called our heart Doctor and he found us Dr Spann! Today it has bedn six weeks and my husband has been pain free and recovering from the long weeks of bed rest prescribed by first surgeon. If you are having pain in your back, shoulders and legs you need to schedule an appointment with Dr Scott Spann!

Review of Dr. Burns

-

The best experience I’ve ever had with any doctors office. From the front office staff to Dr. Burns it was an amazing experience. Dr. Burns, PA Gabe Petty and Medical assistant Romero are an amazing team. Very thorough and professional. Explained everything how I could understand it and made you feel at home like you’d been friends for years. Highly recommend!

Review of Dr. Spann

-

I stopped seeing Dr. Spann because he doesn't listen to his patients. His office ordered unnecessary procedures - an IV was started on me because his office ordered it and it wasn't used for anything. I paid over $1000 for an EMG test in his office and haven't been able to get the records. They said they mailed them to me but they never arrived. The Westlake Hospital where he does outpatient procedures overcharged me approxamately $1500 and I'm working on getting my money back which is a major hassle. To top it all off the insurance claim he submitted for a three level fusion was rejected by my insurance company due to insufficient diagnostics. This happened after I decided to stop seeing him but it's just another failure. I'm seeing another orthopedic surgeon now and the experience is so much better and I made the right decision to stop seeing Dr. Spann.

Review of Dr. Spann

Dr Spann does not listen to his patient, he looks at the MRI and says "we all have tears." I told him I can't sit for more than a couple minutes without pain and I can't lift more than 20lbs. He said "go live your life." The problem is my life consists of lifting more than 20 lbs and sitting 8+ hours in a day for work.

Review of Dr. Crawford

-

I injured my leg while playing on sand at the beach. My foot sank into the sand and the part of leg above the knee twisted. It's a very common way to tear your ligament. I explained all this to Dr.Crawford. He ordered both x-ray and MRI. Despite that he misdiagnosed and told me I only had a bone injury. He gave me an expensive brace and assured my knee would heal pretty soon.When I went for a follow-up a month later, my knee had become very stiff. His assistant found out I had an ACL tear!!

Review of Dr. Spann

- in Georgetown, TX |

He caused me unnecessary pain for 7/8 months through mid-diagnosis of an error in his fusion of my spine. He recommended hip replacement to alleviate the pain in my hip and spine which did no good. Over about 7 months I visited his office 7 times complaining about high pain. Each time he said it was a hip problem, refusing to own up to a surgical error on his part. He didn’t recommend an MRI to locate the pain source. A pain MD had to do what Dr. Spann should have done. Very poor at listening.

Review of Dr. Burns

- in Austin, TX |

Unfortunately I cannot review the physician as I have not met him, only the PA. My review is in regards to the functionality of the office. Greater than 3 weeks ago I had an appointment and getting a brace and injections were discussed at that time as an effort to postpone knee replacement. I still have not heard back from the office, I guess it is not a priority as they are not the ones in pain! Would not recommend!!

Review of Dr. Spann

- in Austin, TX |

Dr Spann is only available on Friday s the rest of the week he is doing surgery. I had arthroscopy on my knee March 22 and I am in worse pain 3 months later. He diagnosed me with a very rare PVNS and provided no relief except saying he would refer me to a radiologist. I went for a second opinion at AR Orthopedics and three doctors dismissed the PVNS theory. Did not even need the surgery . AND they charged me $25 for my own records! Then they bill incorrectly so what was paid for last year is
