My Philosophy and Approach to Wellness...

My objective has always been to focus on providing personal attention for my patient's individual healthcare and well-being. I have learned over the last 15 plus years that really listening to my patients gives me the opportunity to provide ideal care. Letting the patient speak is fast disappearing from medical practice that has become cluttered with institutions, systems, and rules that distract from patient care.

As an MDVIP-affiliated physician, I have the time and resources that allow me to formulate a wellness plan that will help you achieve your health goals. Whether you are dealing with acute or chronic conditions, we will carefully and proactively individualize your treatment providing clear explanation of your options.

In my practice, we create a stronger doctor-patient relationship which enhances your personalized medical care and allows you to achieve optimal health. We will compassionately partner together to maximize wellness and experience an improved quality of life. My interests include patient education, healthy nutrition and exercise, as well as risk assessments/treatments for diabetes, coronary disease and stroke prevention.

Dr. Spedale has been my doctor for 10+ years. He's seen me through the worst of times. He always makes sure I understand what we need to do to keep me healthy as possible.

Dr. Spedale has always been the greatest of doctors and I'm so glad he's on… See more

How do you thank the doctor that held my hand during my husband's final days and called regularly after hours to see how we were both doing. Although Dr. Spedale was not Jim's primary physician at the time due to Jim working out of state, once I brought Jim back home to Dothan following extensive chemo and radiation treatments , Roland Spedale stepped in and began treating Jim… See more
