What People Say About Dr. William Spanos, MD
Reply
Dr Spanos is one of the best ENT, Head and Neck Cancer Specialists in the country. He saved my life and continues to do so. I was in 4th stage cancer of the tongue and in New York they were discouraging about a positive outcome. Dr. Spanos and his team have worked hard to keep me clear with no evidence of disease. I cant say enough great things about him. Plain and simple, he's the best in the country and he wants to cure you. He has the highest cancer of the Head and Neck in the country.
