Ratings for Dr. Mark E. Spier
Dr Spier is a competent, caring and honest podiatrist. He has a great personality and a sharp sense of humor, which some people may not appreciate. I was always seen on time and treated expertly. I would recommend Dr Spier to my family and friends without hesitation.
I have been suffering from awful toenail fungus for quite some time now and the work that Dr. Spier has done truly changed my life. I was always embarrassed of my feet but after just one laser treatment my feet began to look great. After two laser treatments, medicine and the topical nail polish my feet are brand new. I truly appreciate the work that he did and the time he took to make sure I understood what I needed to do to maintain my feet looking good. I never had to wait long and if I was early to my appointments I was always able to be seen right away. Would highly recommend him to anyone that suffers from toenail fungus!
This doctor has horrible beside manner. Very arrogant and rude. He finishes up the task quickly to then state"u can pay here or up in front". No written instructions for wound dressing, medications to take if symptoms of pain persist. Written instructions are mandatory to be given for every procedure. Big or small. I have had written instructions for chemical peels (cosmetic) and this doctor took an ingrown toe nail from the root. Also no numbing cream was put on before injections. Thus u feel every pain from the injections and not gentle at all.
I just didn't feel comfortable at doctor's Spier's office or confident I really had toe fungus since another podiatrist I saw at the same time said the opposite. The pay policies are draconian and out of line with all medical practicioners. I've seen. The staff is quick to hang up before you say Hello, but not quick to call back to schedule follow-ups. I was also seen well after my appointment time after arriving early. Besides poor staff, business practices, and location, Dr. Spier is probably a decent podiatrists. However, overall I wasn't confident in Dr. Spier's ability or interests.
I went to Dr. Spier for a pair of custom orthotics to replace an old pair. I had to pay out of pocket. Unfortunately, his fitting was done poorly, as both pairs made from the fitting gave me unbelievable pain, worse than going barefoot. After wasting a lot of time suggesting fruitless solutions, he admitted that he wouldn't refund either the cash I gave him for this garbage or the several visits I wasted on him. As if I, a person living on disability, I could afford to throw this money away! Avoid him for orthotics.
I had a mild toenail fungus on both feet. I was given a prescription and went thru 3 treatments of lazer. I also was diligent using a topical polish treatment on my toes. Sorry to report the $1500.00 did not cure my toenail fungus. It is back and I feel like there is nothing else to try, or that will work.
I had ugly and unsightly toe nail fungus on my left big toe and the start of fungus on my remaining toes on my left foot and tail nail fungus on my right foot. I was embarrassed to go to the pool with my wife. Two laser treatments on my left big toe, coupled with taking Lamisil HCL every three months for nine months cleared the toe nail fungus on my left big toe, in addition to the other toes on feet. I was able to go to the pool this summer without feeling embarrassed about my feet. I also used a shoe sanitizer on all my shoes. I highly recommend Dr. Mark E. Spier for anyone that has ugly and unsightly toe nail fungus and has been unsuccessful in removing toe nail fungus by using over the counter medication.
