Conditions Treated

Dr. Spoto says..

When I diagnose and treat a condition, I look at the patient as a whole and not just as a disease that needs to be cured. As an osteopathic physician, I believe that all the functions and systems of the body are connected. By evaluating the person as a whole – mind, body and spirit – I can work with the patient to determine the best treatment for their issue.
