I suffered with severe neck, shoulder pain and arm weakness do to auto accident. I had been to other Drs over a years time that sent me to physical therapy several times and injections that did little to relieve my pain. Dr Spangler recommended Double cervical fusion. After surgery I had immediate relief and after three months I was back to work and felt Great. A year after surgery I feel great and have had no problems. Thanks to Dr. Spangler and her staff.

Dr. Spangler's office needed my med records before they saw me. I released them and asked that they be sent. I got a call saying they had an opening. We drove 50 miles to find out they didn't have my most recent MRI and needed it before we could discuss anything. She would call when she got it. I waited 3 weeks after she got it and she never called, despite my calling x2. I asked for my records back and I am looking for a different surgeon. So I have no idea what kind of surgeon she is.

Dr. Spangler and her staff are exceptionally efficient, courteous, kind and professional. They have gone the extra mile in helping me find solutions to a couple of very complex and painful issues I've been having. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for help in this area of medicine. Thank you, Larry
