Lisa Spanel has served as administrative assistant with the practice since 2008, providing support to the two neurosurgeons, two nurse practitioners, and the nurse and office manager of the clinic. Lisa loves her job because she gets to help patients with their concerns and needs. She knows that for patients and family members, facing a need for neurosurgery is often a scary and trying time, and she will do whatever she can to make it a little easier for patients. Some of Lisa’s duties include answering the phones, running the front desk, taking care of medical records, scheduling appointments, obtaining insurance authorizations and answering any non-medical questions. Lisa is a mother to two amazing kids. She enjoys spending time with family and friends, camping, hiking, biking, boating and fishing.
