Ratings for Dr. Michael J. Spence
My last visit with Dr. Spence was June 29th 2015. One of his staff wrote my new prescription and Dr Spence signed it. A few days later I took my prescription to CVS on Willowcreek in Portage where they promptly refused to fill it. Seems for some reason his office gal wrote Percoset 7.5/300 which doesn' exist it should have been written Percoset 7.5/325. When I called his office I was told Dr Spence is on vacation and there was nothing she could do about it if I was having pain then maybe I should go to the emergency room or wait until he returns on the 14th of July. Well I hung on because if I were to go to someone other than Dr Spence I would be breaking my contract. I called his office again to see if I needed an appointment for Tuesday the 14th and was told no just bring the prescription in and he will write a new one. I drove to his office in Valparaiso and his office was closed up with no explanation and no one has answered the office telephone for a week. I am on disability and suffer from extreme pain my next appointment is scheduled for July 31st that's if Dr Spence shows up.
Excellent doctor who after a single visit, I can state with full confidence knows how to diagnose and treat pain. He is not like some other area doctors that will just try to "control" your pain. He will go after the root of the problem and offer you several ways to ELIMINATE the problem, instead of covering it up with medicine. Has unbelievable knowledge, and his staff also is very polite and easy to deal with. Would recommend to anyone struggling with chronic pain.
