"I recently has a breast reduction done by Dr. Spann. He was an excellent surgeon and I couldn't be happier with the results. He Office staff was prompt and polite. I never had to tell them who I was or what I was there for. I never waited more than 10 minutes. I would recommend Dr. Spann to all my friends."
"I am currently a patient of Dr. Spann's and I have nothing but wonderful things to say about him, his office, and his staff. I had a breast augmentation done by Dr. Spann last summer, and I have to say that my results are AMAZING!! During all of my follow ups the staff has been so helpful and caring, and the office is so warm and inviting. I couldn't be happier with my overall experience from start to finish. I have the utmost respect for Dr. Spann and his entire office staff. I wouldn't hesitate for a second to send family and friends to him for surgery because I know they would be in very capable, caring hands."
"On Oct 10, 2014, at 9:40 PM, Cynthia Aguilar I commend Dr. Marvin Spann on his all-around experience during a time of great tribulation in my life. I am a patient of his and have been since 2011 when I was first diagnosed with breast cancer and undergone 4 surgeries for I suffered an infection . With the help of a very good Infectious Doctor and a good Surgeon I was able to hurdle all the obstacles towards the path to recovery. As a Health Care professional myself I appreciate the professional bedside manner he and his team provides. They are always consistent in terms of service and care even through their transition from a group clinic to a private practice. Dr. Spann has great attention to detail which makes me feel that he really cares. It also shows in the appearance of his clinic. He provides a very comforting environment during your time of need. That is why I chose to continue my treatment with him even though I live 45 minutes away. I truly believe that my recovery was greatly amplified by having him as my doctor. Thank you Dr. Marvin Spann for taking care of me and making me feel whole again."
"Dr. Spann seems to be a fairly good surgeon but he doesn't always have his patients best interest in mind. He will try to sell whatever surgery he can, disregarding what is healthy for his patients. If there is an emergency, or you develop an infection at a time that's not convenient for him-you are out of luck. I would not recommend Dr. Spann to anyone."
"Dr. Spann and staff are great they always take time to listen and help you threw what you need. I had a appointment with Dr. Spann and I got bad news and started crying and the staff was so carrying that they offered to give me a ride home, I have never been to a doctors office that cared so much for me that made me feel so good about the whole situation. Dr Spann has preformed several surgery's on me and has made me feel comfortable were I was having panic attacks and Doctor Spann would come in and crack a joke and I would relax and know everything would be alright, I trust Dr Spann and staff, they always follow up and make you feel like part of the family. I would recommend them to any one who needs to have plastic surgery and wants to get great care all around, big kudos to the whole staff and Dr. Spann."
