A brilliant kind, compassionate, talented one of a kind physician who in 3 mins can do what takes others physicians days. Saved my arm. I could not thank him enough. Mayo does see an enormous amount of patients the best in the world. From the door greeters and information desk to nursing they absolutely try their hardest to please. The waiting rooms very comfortable. Artwork in halls exceed most museums I’ve been to.

Mayo is a machine. Patients are not people. Everyone is one of hundreds of thousands of numbers where no one knows your name or remembers your face unless you live locally. If you come from afar and need Spinner, find out how your care will be managed back home for post op problems/concerns. Good luck ever getting Spinner on the phone after surgery. You are likely one and done. There is no compassion, no loyalty. If you need care later on for the same problem, he will turn his back on you.

Dr. Spinner is very kind and his bedside manner is A+. This was my 2nd surgery at Mayo for the same problem and will definitely go back to Dr. Spinner if another instance pops up. My whole experience was well worth the drive.
