PATIENT PHILOSOPHY
I feel it is very important that the breast surgeon takes control of the patient’s care, and that as their surgeon; I personally explain the surgical options, the surgical procedures and the potential additional treatments that may be recommended to the patient. The care of patients with breast disease, particularly those diagnosed with breast cancer, requires patience and empathy, which is what I expect of both myself and my office staff and that I believe we deliver on a daily basis

PERSONAL
Dr. Spotts has been married since 1990 to Andres Resto, MD, plastic and reconstructive surgeon, and has two sons.
