Patient Comments (2)
in Canyon Lake, CA |
I would definitely not recommend Dr. Spiegel. My daughter saw him every 4 months for SEVEN years. He ran the same tests every time and concluded that she was a phenomenon and there was no one else like her in the world with her condition. He claimed a team of 30 doctors globally were working on her case. We just switched doctors due to insurance and the new doctor has seen more than a handful of children just like her and knows exactly what to do to help cure her. Too much time and money gone.

Dr Spiegel is contracted with my insurance provider. He is listed on the Insurance companies web site and has all of his paper work on file with the company. He has decided not to accept the plans that fall under the ACA rules. But, he did not file any paper work in Dec. of 2015 to remove his name from the providers list, or to terminate his contract with the company. As far as the company and patients are concerned he is contracted until he ends the relationship officially.
