Patient Comments (12)
in Westerville, OH |
After 4 weeks of dealing with an ear infection, I was referred to Dr. Spiess. He simply has no bedside manner and is very cold. I told him my entire history with meds and treatments. He completely disregarded. He laid me back for a closer look with a microscope. Said I had no fluid and that there was a crust on my ear drum. He proceeded to scrape my ear drum with no warning. When I told him to get away from me, he insisted he could give me nothing to alleviate the pain and was very uncaring.

I have suffered from sinus problems since I was a toddler. In 2006 Dr. Speiss found a cyst in my sinus and removed it. since that I have had only a few sinus infections and he has treated it usually with one visit.
Reynoldsburg, OH |
In and out service, refused to really explain what he wanted to do. He wanted to remove a piece of my throat with just numbing spray! I attempted to explain my anxiety about this to him with no remorse or care. He also said my pain couldn't be related to my issue. I had tonsil surgery with him 8 years ago and nothing but issues since. Moving on to a new dr

If you prefer doctors who are quick and that's all you look for in a doctor, then he is your guy. Being his patient constantly feels like he has somewhere way more fun to be and you're keeping him from it. Quick and efficient would be one thing, but he barely listens before throwing treatment options at you that fail. I've literally been afraid to even set up an appointment until I'm truly suffering so as to not annoy him, and that just shouldn't be how you feel with your doctor.

You cannot get through the phone system to speak to someone about follow up. Cannot get Rx questions addressed.
Springfield, OH |
Dr. Spiess performed sinus surgery on me in 2006. It was extensive. He never explained exactly what all he did and was not good to thoroughly answer my questions. I have since tried to get my records so I could read for myself exactly what he did. They tell me they can't find my records! I've since had to have 2 other sinus surgeries, and it would have been nice for these doctors to gave had his records/notes. I'm not impressed with his communication skills or concern for the patient.
Columbus, OH |
Dr. Spiess performed a partial thyroidectomy. He did a great job relating information in the preceding office visit and pre-surgery and post-surgery discussions. I do not hesitate to support his decision or skill as a surgeon. The follow-up care is the problem. No biopsy results call. He ordered the month-later thyroid hormone titres, but never called about those results. When I called each time, there was friendly apologies, but it appears there are large cracks to fall through.

Dr. Spiess removed some impacted wax from my ears. He was friendly, showed care and concern, and the procedure caused minimal pain.

Dr.Spiess and I related well. He was thorough, solved my sinus problems and was empathetic. Would not hesitate to recommend him highly.

He did surgery on both of my children. My daughter broke her nose and my son had his adenoids removed. I also see Dr speaks. I have been very pleased!
