October 19th, 2015Poor Ethical Choices
I had an emergency surgery with this doctor at Mercy hospital in Redding, CA. I had an ERCP. The male nurse that was supposed to be helping him told me that Dr. Spinka allowed him to do the surgeries. I was in crisis and my liver and pancreas levels were out of control. I had no option to ask for another nurse or doctor in my condition or I would have. The nurse was on drugs or an ex-drug user, his actions were very sporadic and rough too the point that I asked him to please be more careful in his movement and gentle during the surgery. Right after the surgery I had this horrible pain like a broke left rib. Two years later it is getting worse and I know that it has something to do with Dr. Spinka letting the nurse do the surgery. Dangerous doctor please don't risk your life with him.

I have been refered to Dr. Spinka, but his receptionist has been rude and keeps telling me there are 5 other gastroenterologists in Redding..Why don't I call one of them up to get in sooner than a month! When I said I have issues (IBS) now, and my GP is sending me to Dr. Spinka..she said go to the ER then! Not sure I want to see this Doctor if the receptionist is this NASTY!

I am 59 and have never been sick. That has now changed and Dr. Spinka and his staff have been nice to work with. If I call, Dr. Spinka returns my call that day to answer whatever concerns I have. I have never navigated through this world of insurance, billing, deductibles and the staff and doctor have been patient and helpful.
