Learn about Dr. Spotts

Care Philosophy

I feel it is very important that the breast surgeon takes control of the patient's care. I feel it is very important that I personally explain the surgical options, the surgical procedures and the potential additional treatments that may be recommended to the patient. The care of patients with breast disease, particularly those diagnosed with breast cancer, requires patience and empathy which is what I expect of both myself and my office staff which I believe we deliver on a daily basis.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in both breast, stage 2 late 2016, my OBGYN referred me to doctor Spotts, I had a bilateral masectomy, I did not want reconstruction, but let me tell u, Dr. Spotts did an excellent job, my chest doesn't look as bad as I expected, I would always recommend her, she does her job very well done, and makes sure you're very comfortable. I love her

Diagnosed with breast cancer, i was terrified . Went through the steps had surgery. Tests came back clear. Even though my journey isnt completed, i still need to go to radiation. I highly recommend Dr Spotts, she is compassioate and professional. I know i can fight any cancer as long as i have Dr Spotts as my surgeon.
