I appreciate Dr Spangler telling me about the heart conditions I have in words that are easy to understand. With information about realistic options explained I have less fear about unknowns, and facing the valve or aorta repairs later if needed seems a lot less scary.

Dr. Spangler shared the results of my echocardiogram and the reasons why he was adjusting one and discontinuing other medications. He answered all my questions and concerns with clarity. I was treated with respect and left the office feeling very comfortable about what to expect in the future with regards to my condition. Thanks for the good care!

[...] 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.

Bedside manner was adequate, would prefer more personality. Nurse was not very friendly.

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.
