Doctoer Spiera doesn't accept any insurance, so expect to pay $700 just to meet him, and who knows how much for followups. I'm not wealthy enough to afford that ON TOP of the insurance I pay through the teeth for, so I guess my health isn't any concern to him.

Dr Robert Spiera was the first doctor to diagnosis my Stiff Person Syndrome, after years of visiting drs! He thought out of the box when all the other doctors were looking elsewhere. He will spend extra time researching issues and referrals (if needed) to be sure you receive the best care. He's a brilliant practitioner.
