The resources at Saint Vincent Medical Group afford Dr. Spanagel the opportunity to provide support for patients in ways both emotional and tangible. “I counsel patients at every visit and work with them on obtaining their goals for a healthy lifestyle. The support I can offer through Saint Vincent Medical Group includes referrals and recommendations for additional on-site or nearby resources and specialists who can further assist with those goals.”

The newly added patient portal, which will allow patients to view lab and test results, is another way Dr. Spanagel is able to offer outstanding care to her patients. “The patient portal is another channel of communication between me and my patients, and it allows patients to receive their results quickly independent of their physician’s schedule and time constraints.”

She holds a medical degree from the University Of Rochester School Of Medicine and Dentistry in Rochester, New York.
