Dr. Spier is very unethical. Mean, Unkind, no compassion
Oceanside, CA |
Dr. Spier is the main reason I dropped Kaiser Permanente as my health insurance provider after a combined 30 years of KP coverage for my family. After at least ten in-person visits with $50 copayments a piece, Dr. Spier was late to each one. After an unexpected emergency department visit, ED doctors tried to contact Dr. Spier in an urgent manner to receive professional guidance for the patient. Dr. Spier did not respond in any way for SEVEN HOURS. I've had to file at three formal complaints.
