Poor Ethical Choices

Posted on October 19th, 2015

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.

Horrible receptionist!

Posted on March 6th, 2015

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!

Good Guy

Posted on June 20th, 2011

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.
