"I love this clinic! I have been seen by doctor Grace Kim, and I cannot thank her enough for her kindness and for making me feel welcome at her office. She always makes sure she answers all my questions and concerns and takes the time to explain to me what is going on with my health. I feel I am not just another patient, I feel Ms. Kim cares for me. Her staff is amazing, from her nurses to the ladies at the front desk. This clinic is very clean and the interior design of the lobby/waiting area is fantastic. Thank you, Ms. Kim, I truly appreciate you!"
"I was diagnosed with breast cancer last November, a very scary time for me. I am grateful that I was referred to Dr. Marvin Spann to have reconstruction with an expander at the same time as my mastectomy. My overall experience with him and the staff has been excellent. Everyone has been very professional, compassionate, and kind. Dr. Marvin Spann is a perfectionist and will not let you have botched results. I am glad that I am done with this chapter of my life but if I need/want further cosmetic surgery I will definitely go to Dr. Marvin Spann."
"I can’t say enough great things about my experience with Dr. Candace Spann. First off, her staff is amazing. Valerie, Cynthia, and everyone I encountered were immensely warm and welcoming.When I initially called to book, her first opening was 4 months out. I asked Valerie about a cancelation list, and she said she’d add me to it. Well, about 30 minutes later, Valerie reached out to inform there had been a cancelation for the following business day. I can’t thank Valerie enough, she’s a miracle worker.Now for Dr. Spann. There just aren’t enough words to describe what a special human she is. I’ve lived all over the country and traveled all over the world. I’ve worked in the entertainment industry for nearly 2 decades, so I know instantly when I meet someone who possesses the ’light’. Dr. Candace Spann has that light. She’s a very special human and doctor. She’s astoundingly knowledgeable in her kraft and all related modalities. Her passion for it overflows the room. You will be overjoyed with your decision to work with her.Dr. Spann developed a strong treatment plan for me, and was even able to begin the first phase of that plan same day. I was supposed to be there solely for a consultation, so needless to say, I was surprised and elated to begin actionable treatment the first day.Overall all, I’m beyond happy with my experience here. I’m very excited about my prognosis and beyond confident in the results we’ll yield. I feel fortunate to have found this gem. Thanks again guys for all your help."
"Can't say enough about Candace. Her Father is a doctor and he is amazing too!"
"Dr. Candace Spann is the best doctor, of any specialty, I’ve ever had. She’s been my doctor for almost 20 years. She takes time out of her day to help me, research my disease and try to diagnose on her own time, no other doctor does that. I have 18 doctors because I’m sicker than a skateboard trick video, she’s the best. I would honestly recommend her for any award, ever. You know what? I have no life, I might just do that."
