Sienna Podiatry - Dr. Holly Spohn Gross, DPM.
While the urban regions work to provide health care to their indigent citizens, rural areas are facing a constant shortage of physicians. Remote areas are always looking for doctors willing to set up their offices in these areas of the country. For Dr. Robert Gross, DO, a 1998 alumnus of Michigan State University, the idea of moving to the Lake Isabella, California area and setting up a clinic was an easy sell. “Every morning I drive to work on the side of a mountain overlooking this beautiful pristine lake,” said Dr.Gross. “I’m in awe every time I see it.”. In November 2008, Dr. Gross and his wife Dr. Holly Spohn-Gross, DPM, also a MSU graduate, opened Sienna Wellness Institute. “The institute was designed with preventive care in mind,” explained Dr. Spohn-Gross. “In addition to podiatry, we also offer cardiology, gastroenterology and laboratory services by LabCorp. One of the things in mind when building Sienna Wellness Institute was to think of what would make the patients more comfortable while in our waiting room, so we gave it a relaxing Mediterranean décor that feels less like a medical facility. You’d be amazed at how much it lowers patient’s blood pressure!
