Does anyone know where Dr Springer went? The Pinnacle office in Chesterton will tell me nothing. I've gone to her for years and would like to know if she is still in the area or did she retire? You would think the office would say if she was retired. Thanks

Yes, you can expect a long wait time. However, Springer is worth it. She is incredibly blunt and straight to the point which I appreciate. I can trust her opinion and don't have to worry about getting the run around or false reassurance. There's a reason why people are willing to wait for hours for her opinion.

Excellent Doctor, knowledgable, friendly, and professional. Her nurse Cheryl was a bonus, very friendly, felt very comfortable. To those complaining about the waits, "good things comes to those with patience".

Wait was way too long. Doctor Springer wasn’t very pleasant. She clearly overbooks her patients and doesn’t give them the proper care and attention that is needed. She spent very little time with me and my daughter considering how long we waited. Her staff needs an attitude adjustment. Especially the short hair gal receptionist.

Expect a 1-2 hour wait. Additionally, this doctor prescribed a low-level antibiotic for my son's acne, which was covered by our co-pay. At the next visit, she changed the prescription to the exact same medication, but a time-release formula. My insurance co-pay did not cover, and the cost was more than $350 per month. I asked her to put us back to the original, and instead have him take the duplicate dosage twice per day, but she refused. Her reason: he might forget the 2nd dose. Bye-bye!

It is an hour past my appointment time and I am still in the waiting room. I do not appreciate being treated like my life is theirs to waste. Because theu cannot properly schedule, I get less time to spend with my son today.

Nice woman, but runs an unorganized office and schedules multiple patients at once so there is a LONG wait. She has also made a couple medical mistakes with me. I overlooked the first, because she is human and mistakes happen, but the second was too much!

You wait for over an hour half each visit. Dr does not listen to what you are saying she is in a hurry. Office staff up front is rude. They do not call you back w lab results. Even when it is abnormal and I had to call 3 times to get results after 2 weeks! Results come in much sooner than that! I have never been to , worked in or heard of a office like this before. Very unprofessional and scary. Would never recommend this office!
