[...] I wish Dr Spangler had discussed more firmly the difficulty of the after surgery rehab to my mother. no surgery is necessary at this time, but I don't feel that my mother took the need to change her lifestyle seriously enough. Dr Spangler was very nice - I wished he had scared her a little bit .... she feels like there is no problems with her heart. I will also say she has the beginnings of Dementia which can be good & bad when it comes to her health.

I feel Dr. Spangler is a good cardiologist and I'd recommend. I had a bit of trouble communicating with him at first but it's better now. He and his surgical team for my heart cath were a great crew. You don't see things work like a finely tuned machine anymore so it was noticeable how they all work together professionally. The nursing crew there was great as well.

I'm not sure about this doctor, this is my first encounter of him, I did not choose him. [...] It's hard to give an opinion about someone you just met for a few minutes. He seemed like he was very competent.

It would be nice to have someone in your practice that was knowledgable regarding supplements and alternative choices. Drugs and surgery seem to be your only answers, but I am not willing to choose that yet. Therefore no one can help me with what I need.
